When did it become clear that Andy Atkins had lost his mojo?
Andy Atkins’ final season with the Cleveland Browns was one of the most underwhelming in NFL history.
He was traded for a second-round pick, a second start and a sixth-round selection.
The Browns won three of their final four games.
Andy was traded to the Cincinnati Bengals for a first-round draft pick and a third-round player, and the Bengals won four more games, including a playoff victory over the Patriots.
It was the first time the Bengals lost a playoff game without winning it all.
It also marked the last time Andy had played a full season with an NFL team.
He retired on Oct. 16, 2018, after his 16-year career.
It wasn’t a good year for Andy, who was released by the Bengals after a 1-7 start.
He didn’t even make the playoffs.
The next season, he played for the Buffalo Bills.
He missed two games before being released in 2020.
Andy also spent five seasons in Cleveland, but the Browns never won a playoff series in his seven seasons.
Andy returned to the Bengals in 2017 as an assistant coach and then head coach, and in 2018, he became the team’s offensive coordinator.
He also took over the running backs and quarterbacks duties.
The Bengals won five games in 2019 and eight in 2020, but were knocked out of the playoffs in each of those seasons.
