If you could move any current NFL franchise to a new location who would you pick?
If you could move any current NFL franchise who would you pick? Where would you move them and why? They would keep the same players they have now but you could changed the name, location, and uniforms etc.

Cleveland Browns to LA. Looks at what the first Browns team getting out of Cleveland did for them. The Ravens have won 2 Super Bowls in 13 years, something the Browns organization has never done. I don't mean to come off as bashing the city of Cleveland, but God doesn't seem to like them much. Between the Cavs (created in 1970), Browns (since the AFL-NFL merger) and Indians (created 1901) they have a combined two world championships (thanks to the Indians).
When the Browns were re-created in 1999 it was supposed to be a "turning of the page" for the name and city. Instead they picked up right where the Art Modell team left off. In 14 years they have 2 winning seasons, 1 division championship and a 73-151 record. Heck, they have only won more than 5 games four times and are on a 5 season streak of 5 or less wins!

The Jags are the obvious choice to move, but it isn't very likely that they will move.
On a side note, do people not realize that Cleveland sells out most of their games, despite putting such a bad product on the field? Makes absolutely zero sense to move them.

Attendance aside, he asked why and I stated why. Cleveland teams don't win. At their current rate, by 2055 the Browns will have only made the playoffs 6 times. Eventually even the die-hard Browns fans are going to get tired of spending their money to support a team that is almost a sure-thing to miss the playoffs.

If any NFL franchise team that deserves to be relocated, it would be the Detroit Lions. Of course, they won 4 NFL Championship prior to the Super Bowl era, but only posting a 1-10 record in Playoff appearances ever since. Not to mention the atrocious 2008 season, in which they became the 1st franchise in NFL history to lose all of their games. I'd relocate them to Oklahoma City, where a new city would provide a fresh new start for them, and then, that's when they'll start winning regular season as well as Playoff games. And if the city of Detroit wants a NFL franchise, they'll applied to get one through an expansion years later.NOT doing 50/50s nor consignments!

aren't the lions owned by ford? As long as that's the case the lions won't go anywhere. The problem with them is they are potential playoff contenders. If the lions tank the next few years then I would put them at the top with the chiefs. Especially the way the chiefs fans acted last year when cassell got injured and taken off the field. Those kind of fans don't deserve an NFL team regardless of their record.

The logical choice would be to move them to LA but that doesn't seem to work which is very odd for such a large market but I can't really think of many other places that could use a football franchise.
