Waiting For Next Year:
It isn’t surprising news, but it is good news just the same to hear that the Browns are listening to offers for the fourth pick in this upcoming draft. While many Browns fans would really like to see the Browns select an individual player at #4, there is no question that there is a drop off in talent after Luck, Griffin, Kalil and maybe Claiborne. With the Browns poised to select three immediate starters with their first three picks, you have to think Tom Heckert would love an extra crack or two in the first two rounds if he can get them.
ESPNCleveland’s Tony Grossi has the report on Twitter.
It will be a tough pill to swallow for some Browns fans if Heckert and Holmgren decide to trade down again. The pain of a four win season delivered the #4 pick and to many, that means applying the salve of a premier player worthy of being selected fourth overall. If they can get enough, though, there’s no question that another year with a trade down would be a wise move.
The real question is who is talking while the Browns are listening?

The general manager for the Cleveland Browns Tom Heckert started the support yesterday telling the media the Browns "are fine with Colt McCoy as our quarterback." The PR build up of Colt McCoy continued yesterday on Cleveland Browns radio show when Mike Holmgren told Vic Carucci he recently called Colt to offer support and clear up the media speculation about the Browns...
I know how stressful it can be to watch big names fall off the boards with the Browns being so quiet. (Apologies to Frostee Rucker.) I’ve gotten caught up at various times during the past two weeks trying to balance between my desire to see the Browns get better and not get held up by some player agent for way too much money. I’ll admit that I sometimes want to crack jokes on...
Despite a failed attempt at trading up for the second-overall spot in the upcoming NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns appear to be hitching their 2012 wagon to third-year quarterback Colt McCoy. In an interview with The Plain Dealer, Browns head coach Pat Shurmur, citing the lack of preparation and all things offseason a year ago, believes that the Texas product can improve and be the...
SEASON TICKETS PROPOSAL
Cleveland superfan Mike Polk, Jr - previously of the epic “Factory of Sadness” rant - recently received a note from his beloved Browns franchise, reminding him to send in payment for his 2012 season tickets.
This is his response:
[H/T Scene & Heard]
Cleveland Browns general manager Tom Heckert confirmed reports that the team has had multiple inquiries regarding a potential trade up to the fourth-overall spot in the upcoming NFL Draft, a position currently in possession.
Heckert, via The Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot, stated that while the team will likely stay in their current position, as opposed to trading down for the second...
The 2012 NFL Draft is just around one month away, and the Cleveland Browns currently possess the No. 4 overall pick. While there remains the possibility that they could trade that pick and move down in order to stockpile more picks later in this year’s draft as well as next year, it appears as if the Browns would be wise to hold onto this selection. But which route...
The new Browns are a team that inherited value from an old tradition and ownership. A management that wants to win. Players that play for the fans. The loyal fans of Cleveland deserve to win more and a championship.
Don’t change anything, just leave it the way it is. That’s the problem every time something goes wrong, we tear it down and re-build new, that’s not good for any...
A few weeks ago, news broke that the St. Louis Rams and the Washington Redskins agreed to terms on a trade that would send the 2nd overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft to the Redskins. Shortly after hearing that, Browns president Mike Holmgren released a statement on the trade saying it was unfair and unjust because of the relationship that the Redskins staff had with the Rams staff...
After failing to get RG3, the Browns are now circling their wagons around Colt McCoy.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Browns have holes all over the field. On Monday, they got four more draft picks to help plug them.
The NFL awarded Cleveland four compensatory picks in this year's draft, giving the Browns a total of 13, a baker's dozen of choices to revamp a talent-starved roster with offensive and defensive needs.
The club gained two sixth-round picks (Nos. 204 and...
For the seniors like Cameron Saddler and Mike Shanahan, Bobby Engram is their fourth position coach in five years.
Last Wednesday the Bengals signed former New England Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis to a three-year contract. He will probably get a bulk of the team's carries in 2012. Green-Ellis' arrival all but guarantees that Cedric Benson, the Bengals primary back for the past four seasons won't be returning next season.
As of now, Benson remains on the free agent...
