Waiting For Next Year:
Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald is reporting that the Cleveland Browns have called the New England Patriots looking to trade for former Arkansas QB Ryan Mallet-
“The Browns have continued to show interest in acquiring Mallett from the Patriots, according to a source. The Pats want at least a second-round pick in return for the backup quarterback who was taken in the third round of the 2011 draft.
The Browns and Buccaneers inquired about Mallett earlier this offseason, to no avail. One snag is Mallett’s contract, which can’t be restructured or extended until next offseason, per CBA rules. While the Browns would have Mallett in their control for a very affordable number over the next two years, they’d obviously be acquiring him under the assumption that he’d play well enough to earn a big paycheck. If that happens, he would control all of the negotiating leverage.”
The Patriots, according to Howe are seeking a second round pick for Mallet. The Browns of course used their second round choice in this year’s draft last summer on WR Josh Gordon. If the Patriots held firm to their desire for a second rounder, Cleveland would have to trade back from the sixth pick to acquire a second rounder to send to New England.
There has been speculation that the Browns new regime is not satisfied with QB Brandon Weeden and has looked at replacing him with Geno Smith of West Virginia, EJ Manuel of Florida State and of course Mallet. Publicly the Browns have said they are excited about Weeden’s skills, specifically his strong arm.
Ryan Mallet was a third round pick of the Patriots in 2011. He has thrown 4 passes in the NFL, completing one and throwing one interception.
Obviously many draft day rumors should be taken with a grain of salt. Presented for your information.
