    BEREA, Ohio (AP) - If LeBron James truly believes he can help the Cleveland Browns, coach Eric Mangini has an orange helmet waiting for him.

    "I think he should come on down," Mangini said, smiling. "I know he's pretty busy right now, but if he wants to give it a shot, the guy is gifted. He's competitive and tough. I'm sure whatever he applied himself to, he'd probably be good in baseball or soccer or swimming."


    The NBA superstar, who was an All-State wide receiver in high school, said Tuesday night that if he put the time and commitment into it, he could be a good football player. Mangini agreed, calling James "a freak athletically" and said the 6-foot-8, 260-pounder could be dangerous at tight end, wide receiver or even outside linebacker.

    Getting HIT would be the problem for him.

    If the Browns designed some "alley oop" plays for the end zone and short yardage it would be hard to defend. He is big and athletic...hard to beat him for a jump ball

    If the Brown was a football team they might be competitive in the NFL, too.

    You know who thinks that Lebron could cut it in the NFL? People who don't know sports, especially football!

    The same idiots who think Lebron could realistically make it in the NFL, are the same idiots who thought Bock Lesnar and Usain Bolt were going to make it in the NFL, when they tried. Just like Bolt and Lesnar failed, so too would Lebron!

    Bob Hayes and Willie Gault made it and they were track stars

    Antonio Gates makes a pretty good Tight End and he was a basketball player
