Davone Bess is thankful the Dolphins traded him to the Browns

Wide receiver Davone Bess told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer that he’s thankful  that the Dolphins traded him to the Browns.

“My initial reaction was it was bittersweet, obviously being down here in Miami since my rookie year, having developed a relationship with the organization, the fans and kind of embracing my opportunity was something special here,” said Bess.

“But all good things, they say, must come to an end. To jump ship to Cleveland was a great opportunity, a great stepping stone for myself in my career. So personally it was a great move for me. I’m thankful for the future and I’m looking forward to being a Brown.”

Bess had a lot of success in Miami, but it seemed like he fell out of favor with the new Dolphins coaching staff in 2012 and didn’t have the same impact that he had in prior years.
