BEREA, Ohio (AP) - During the Browns' much-needed bye last week, wide receiver Greg Little spent two hours having lunch in Miami with former NBA star Alonzo Mourning.
The meal was fine.
The message was far more satisfying.
Little came away inspired from his first meeting with Mourning, who explained to him that if he wanted to develop as a player, and that if he wanted to help his team win, the only way to reach any goals was through personal sacrifice.
The talk stirred Little, who didn't waste a moment after returning to Cleveland and shared Mourning's wisdom with his teammates before practice Monday.
