No season ticket waiting list in Washington

There once was a time when Washington boasted a season ticket waiting list of more than 200,000 fans. That was a time when the team was much more popular than it is today.

Now Robinson will try to make the Browns’ roster. If he doesn’t, his NFL career may be over.
