Cleveland-browns
After drafting quarterback Brandon Weeden out of Oklahoma State in the first round of April’s draft, it appears the Cleveland Browns are willing to deal previous starter Colt McCoy relatively cheap. It’s not so much that the Browns aren’t sensitive to the fact that McCoy has already endured a difficult situation in Cleveland, but rather that they’re looking to start Weeden right away. Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com stated the Browns will be seeking “minimal compensation” for any teams interested in acquiring McCoy, who can officially be declared “on the trading block.” On the second day of the draft, there were talks between the Browns and Packers about McCoy, as the Packers are seeking an adequate backup for Aaron Rodgers after Matt Flynn signed with Seattle. The talks were put on hold, but could possibly go forward with training camp around the corner. Certainly the price to acquire McCoy shouldn’t scare the Packers too much.

Might The Eagles Trade For Colt McCoy?

Over the weekend, we talked a bit about Michael Vick‘s future in Philadelphia. Our general conclusion was that his future here actually seems quite secure given the lack of an heir apparent. Unless Mike Kafka lights it up in preseason, there’s really not a QB on this roster other than Vick that right now looks like a viable NFL starter. Like I said over the weekend, there’s...

Warren Sapp thinks the Cleveland Browns are poised for Super Bowl run

The thing about the NFL is that if the stars are aligned properly a team can come out of nowhere to get to the Super Bowl. But, I will explain why Warren Sapp is way off base as usual after you hear what he has to say about the Cleveland Browns.
