This Halloween season, you won’t find anything spookier than reliving all of the Browns’ former quarterbacks at the Browns graveyard in North Ridgeville.

Homeowner Tony Timoteo has been making the graveyard since 2014.

Timoteo said that he and his wife were tossing around different ideas for Halloween decorations for their yard. He told his wife that their yard would be perfect for a graveyard, that’s when she suggested making a graveyard with all of the former starting quarterbacks, similar to the jersey with all of the names on the back.

Every year he finds himself adding more names to the cemetery, including his newest edition: Baker Mayfield.

“In 2016, we had three headstones before Halloween even hit,” Timoteo said.

Timoteo said he is hopeful Mayfield will be the last headstone he has to add this year.

“Baker is going to be our starter moving forward but with the recent bad luck the Browns have had you never know what may happen,” Timoteo said. “The plan and hope is that Mayfield will shut the graveyard down. The joke has been really funny because we continuously play quarterback Carousel year in and year out. We’re just really hoping he is our long-term franchise quarterback!”

The graveyard comes alive at the end of September and normally stays up until a little after Halloween.
