16 Days Until the Browns' Regular-Season Opener

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

We are doing a countdown to the Cleveland Browns' first regular season game against the New York Jets, which is on September 13, 2015. For each day we are counting down, we will try to find a photo of a current or past member of the Browns in that uniform, and we'll also list the players who have donned that jersey in the past.

As of Friday, we are just 16 days away from the Browns' regular season opener. No. 16 is currently being worn by wide receiver Andrew Hawkins. The most notable player to have worn the jersey in my book is WR/KR/PR Joshua Cribbs (8 years). Here is the list of players who have worn No. 16 in the history of the franchise, per Pro Football Reference:
