On the Field With Eric Metcalf

Metcalf was drafted by the Browns in 1989 and spent several successful seasons in Cleveland as a dynamic playmaker at running back, wide receiver, and return specialist.

Before making it to the NFL, Metcalf was a standout at the University of Texas, where he set numerous school records as a running back, receiver, and returner.

The Browns drafted Metcalf 13th overall in 1989, and he immediately made an impact as a dynamic triple threat.

During his six seasons in Cleveland, Metcalf racked up over 2,000 rushing yards, over 5,500 receiving yards, and over 9,000 return yards. He made the Pro Bowl three times and was named an All-Pro twice. Though the Browns only posted one winning season during Metcalf’s tenure, he emerged as a fan favorite for his versatility and electric playmaking ability.

“I absolutely loved my time with [the Browns]…I just loved being able to call myself a Cleveland Brown,” Metcalf said when asked about his time in Cleveland. He went on to praise Cleveland fans, saying “whether you win or lose, you will still be appreciated.”

After leaving Cleveland in 1994, Metcalf played seven more seasons in the NFL with several teams, cementing his legacy as one of the most versatile offensive weapons of his era. He continued to rack up return touchdowns and receiving yards until retiring after the 2001 season

Life After the NFL for Eric Metcalf

Though Metcalf’s incredible playing career ended in 2002, he has remained highly active in football and business ventures since retiring from the NFL.

Metcalf has stayed involved in the sport through media roles like hosting pre-game and post-game shows for the Cleveland Browns as an analyst. He also works as a consultant for Nike, helping identify potential track and field stars at the high school level.

Additionally, Metcalf has branched out into the world of luxury cigars. He launched his own boutique brand called “EM 21s” that offers smokers top-shelf, exclusive cigar varieties. Metcalf has said he is excited to bring his EM 21s cigars on the Browns cruise so he can enjoy smoking with fans in a relaxed atmosphere.

It’s clear that though Metcalf is retired as a player, he has not slowed down since leaving the NFL. He has found new ways to apply his knowledge and status in the realms of media, business, and philanthropy.

However, one of the things Metcalf is most excited about these days is the upcoming Browns Fan Cruise in March 2024. When asked what he’s looking forward to most about the cruise, Metcalf said:

“We’ll be on a cruise, relaxing, smoking cigars, hopefully having some drinks and just being able to just socialize in a different way.”

Metcalf clearly believes the cruise will offer a unique opportunity for fans to interact with former players in a casual setting.

Metcalf explained. “You know you’re going to be on this cruise with us for a few days. And so everybody can just relax and have fun and enjoy the moment. I think that makes it a lot more personal. You get to enjoy people more like that when it’s just it’s just chilling out.”
