Former Browns Pro-Bowl corner back Hanford Dixon stopped by Mansfield's MVP Sports Bar and Grill on Monday night, to talk Cleveland football with local fans.

Dixon touched on his playing days, which he spent all with the Browns from 1981- '89, and discussed the future of the franchise. Several Browns fans, which Dixon calls "the best fans in the world", packed a banquet room to hear the former first round pick talk about the team, ask Dixon questions and have memorabilia signed by the 3-time Pro Bowler.

Dixon was recently ranked the 17th best player in Browns franchise history by cleveland.com and was also selected by NFL.com as the No 2 "Best Cornerback Tandem of All-Time" along with Frank Minnifield. Dixon is also credited for coining the phrase "Dawg Pound" for Browns fans, because he used to bark at Minnifield and the stands to pump up the Cleveland crowd.
