Johnny Stanton on trying to make it in the NFL, Animal Crossing and Dungeons & Dragons

Browns fullback Johnny Stanton is spending his offseason fighting for a job with the Cleveland Browns. It's nothing new for a player who started out as a quarterback at Nebraska before landing at UNLV and eventually trying to make it with the Vikings as a fullback.

He joined to talk about his NFL journey and his various off-field interests which are a little different from what we're used to when it comes to professional athletes.

Stanton is participating in a United Way campaign offering fans a chance to win a virtual hangout with an NFL player. Browns fans who make a $10 donation to the United Way of Greater Lorain County through May 31 can win a virtual hangout with Stanton. Go to for more information.
