A Look At The Browns Free Agent Signings I thought it might be interesting to take a quick look at who the Browns picked up in free agency the past couple of days. Paul Kruger The Browns kicked off free agency with the signing of ex-Raven Paul Kruger. Kruger was a 2nd round pick out of Utah, by the Ravens in the 2009 draft. In 51 games with Baltimore, including 6 starts, he amassed 15.5 sacks, 2 interceptions, 13 passes defensed, 1 forced fumble, 3 fumbles recovered, 49 tackles, and 23 assists. While these numbers are not overwhelming, he will be counted on heavily to help put pressure on the QB. Desmond Bryant The Browns followed up the signing of Kruger by signing former Oakland Raider Desmond Bryant. Bryant was an un-drafted free agent signing, out of Harvard, by the Raiders in 2009. In 62 games with Oakland which included 18 starts he recorded 10.5 sacks, 2 passes defensed, 3 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, 91 tackles, and 31 assists. He wa...
  • Hell ya, the Browns are on their way back to the good old days.
  • there are several top notch defenders still available out there and i don't know why we aren't talking to them. for the price Seattle paid for Avril i am extremely disappointed that he's not a Cleveland Brown! now there is a chance to get Harrison. i know alot of Cleveland fans don't like Harrison but i'd rather have him playing for us than against us. he is the type of football player this team needs. mean and nasty. been way too many nice guys on the team since 99

Still talk of the Browns trying to bring in Mallett, could Phil Taylor get traded to New England?

I am convinced the Browns loaded up their defensive front with some talented guys in free agency. They still didn’t make a move to bring in a quarterback to compete with Weeden. Now the focus in some reports say the Browns could be working out a deal to send former number one pick Phil Taylor to New England. Lets not forget the Browns still have Colt McCoy on the team. Presently...

People who are ready to count Colt McCoy out of Cleveland need to watch this video and give the guy a chance

Here we go again, the Cleveland Browns rumors are flying around and people are already saying that Colt McCoy is going to be cut from the Cleveland Browns.  The guy never had a chance. The Cleveland Browns football team has been in complete disarray since returning to the NFL in 1999. McCoy was forced to become the Browns starter before he was ready. What did he do? He competitive...

Potential Browns’ targets Jennings, Cason, and Schwartz sign elsewhere

With Joe Banner stating the Browns are done making big moves in free agency Browns fans will most likely have to get used to sitting back in the recliner and watching potential free agents fly off the board (Not that this is anything new). In the last 24 hours three names the Browns have been linked to have signed their names to the dotted line elsewhere. Former Green Bay wide receiver...

Falcons free agent cornerback Brent Grimes visits Browns

According to Alex Marvez of, free agent cornerback Brent Grimes visited the Cleveland Browns Saturday. Grimes was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Atlanta Falcons in 2006. However, before playing in Atlanta, Grimes played overseas in NFL Europe for the Hamburg Sea Devils. His best year was in the 2010 season in which he recorded 87 tackles and 5 interceptions...

Did the Cleveland Browns do the right thing letting Brent grimes walk out of Cleveland?

The Cleveland Browns hosted former all pro corner-back Brent Grimes walk out of Cleveland? Grimes is coming back from a serious injury to his leg. Chances are he is a little rusty and the Browns can’t afford to take a chance on a corner that may not be back to 100%. Grimes had other teams showing interest in him and the Falcons could also be waiting to see if they can resign him...

The best defensive free agents available for the Browns

If you want to see what offensive players are available, check out the post from yesterday afternoon. Joe Banner said yesterday that the Browns likely won’t make any more big moves in free agency, but did say that “with a little luck” they will still add a couple players. Of course, ‘big moves’ is a little subjective. The Browns wouldn’t have to spend another $70 million...

Brent Grimes meets with the Browns

According to Alez Marvez of, the Cleveland Browns brought in cornerback Brent Grimes for a visit.  He also met with the Dolphins on Friday. Grimes 2012 season was cut short after tearing his Achilles tendon.  He would be a nice addition to have alongside Joe Haden.       Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement...
