The fastest man in this year’s NFL Draft class is ready to match speed with speed at one of America’s most beloved theme parks. Anthony Schwartz blew scouts away with a 4.26 40-yard dash at his pro day, good enough to land him on the Cleveland Browns with their third-round pick.
Schwartz joined Aaron Goldhammer and Tony Rizzo on The Really Big Show, and they got word before the interview that he loves his rollercoasters.
“We know a little bit about you now that you live in Cleveland, you’ll be able to go to one of the greatest amusement parks in the entire world,” Rizzo said to Schwartz. Cedar Point received that distinction from Rizzo in large part because of their 18 rollercoasters on site.
“So we reached out, Anthony, to our partners at Cedar Point,” Goldhammer said in the follow-up. “They saw you tweeting about this, so we are hooking you up with a pair of gold passes.”
Schwartz had been debating which Ohio amusement park to favor on Twitter: Kings Island or Cedar Point? Schwartz landed on the coaster-filled island on Lake Erie. The Browns’ new deep threat noted he’s most excited to ride the Top Thrill Dragster and Steel Vengence, the latter being the Cedar Point’s latest coaster.
“Thank you I really appreciate it,” Schwartz said. “Cedar Point’s been one of my dream parks that I’ve been meaning to visit. I know it’s the rollercoaster capital of the world. I appreciate them for giving me a gold pass. I want to be there as fast as I can; I wanna go as much as I can as well.”
ESPN Cleveland saw the storyline building on Twitter Monday night and worked quickly to thread the reveal into Schwartz’s Tuesday appearance. Cedar Point is open to Schwartz and all other rollercoaster fanatics starting on May 14.

DeAngelo Hall Explains His Exit From Commanders Radio Booth
“I’m a fan first and it made it hard sometimes to go to work because my vision of what I thought it should be wasn’t ultimately what the decision-makers wanted to do.”
In a case of “you never know who’s listening”, 106.7 The Fan in Washington, D.C. got a surprise on Wednesday. Former NFL pro-bowl cornerback DeAngelo Hall texted Brian Mitchell of BMitch & Finlay that he was listening and wanted to join the program.
After discussing some opinions of the Commanders and other rivals on the field, Hall made a point to address leaving the team’s radio booth as a color analyst. In April it was announced that Hall would exit the broadcast booth. At the time it was reported that the decision was Hall’s. On BMitch & Finlay he added more context by explaining that, “it just felt like it wasn’t the right situation for myself.”
Hall went further by adding that a deciding factor for his decision seemed to be the team’s vision for the broadcast.
“I need to see it. I’m a fan first and it made it hard sometimes to go to work because my vision of what I thought it should be wasn’t ultimately what the decision-makers wanted to do. And you know how I am guys, I speak my mind and I just asked to go my separate way. I still love the organization, I’m still rooting for them.”
The former Washington player joined Bram Weinstein and analyst Julie Donaldson when the Washington Commanders overhauled their entire broadcast crew after an organization-wide sexual harassment scandal mentioned former play-by-play voice Larry Michael.
Hall was sure to praise his former teammate taking his role. “But so hyped for London Fletcher. I told Julie and Fletch at separate times man, that Fletch was such a great teammate and an inspirational person in my life and my process of growing as a pro and as a man, that taught me so much about the game. I couldn’t be happier that she gets a hell of a replacement in London Fletcher.
“I’m hyped for those guys but I’m too pretty to be on the radio, guys, I need more face time,” Hall quipped. “I’m fighting to get in one of them booths. When you see Tom Brady making 10-for-375 I said ‘I’m in the wrong business.’ When you’re watching Tony and them guys I’m in the wrong business. I got to get off this radio and get my face in front of the tizzube.”
