Found April 29, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
Veteran offensive tackle Winston Justice will be visiting the Cleveland Browns this week, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Former Colts and Eagles OT Winston Justice is visiting the Steelers today and is scheduled to go to Cleveland on Wednesday. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 29, 2013 Justice was the 39th-overall pick by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2006, smack in the middle of current Browns CEO Joe Banner’s tenure with the team. He was traded to the Indianapolis Colts last off-season where he started at right tackle. After leaving the 2012 season finale against the Baltimore Ravens, Justice’s replacement allowed 2.5 sacks and five quarterback hurries to current Brown linebacker Paul Kruger. Justice would likely provide depth at the right tackle spot in Cleveland. Justice is visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday and would conceivably have to leave without signing a contract to make it to Berea. [Related: WFNY weighs in on the Cleveland Browns’ 2013 draft]

The Cleveland Browns cornerback situation as it exists today

The Browns have a lot of cornerbacks on the roster, believe it or not. Everyone knows about Joe Haden and Buster Skrine at this point, but let’s go over the rest to see just how daunting a task it might or might not be to field a starting backfield with these guys. Remember, the Browns need a starter on the outside opposite Joe Haden and then will need to decide who best fits the...

Browns’ unexciting draft low on fun, but high on strategy

Sometimes punchlines are just too easy. The low-hanging fruit dangling mere inches from the blades of grass. The Browns traded two straight draft picks and you would have thought they’d done this as a part of their M.O. for decades and decades. “The Browns are on the clock… you know to trade another pick!” Hilarious. Yes, the Browns have traded in the draft in recent years...

Another NFL Draft in the books. With our aversion to “grades” well documented, we will address 10 key points with regard to the 2013 edition, specific to the Cleveland Browns.

Davone Bess is thankful the Dolphins traded him to the Browns

Wide receiver Davone Bess told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer that he’s thankful  that the Dolphins traded him to the Browns. “My initial reaction was it was bittersweet, obviously being down here in Miami since my rookie year, having developed a relationship with the organization, the fans and kind of embracing my opportunity was something special here,” said Bess. “But all...

2013 NFL Draft – “Did the Browns win or lose?” with Scott Raab – WFNY Podcast – 2013-04-29

Scott Raab wasn’t enthused this morning after the Browns’ draft. Craig is cautiously optimistic about the value and strategy. Both finish by saying, “We’ll see.” The Browns’ strategy and value Scott’s dismayed by the Browns draft Attacking the quarterback vs. filling defensive backfield Are the corners really too short? 20+ players are going into their second year...

2014 Mock Draft has Browns missing out on quarterbacks yet again

The Cleveland Browns will once again just miss out on a quarterback and select a skill player in the 2014 NFL Draft, says Sports Illustrated’s Chris Burke. In an entirely-too-early mock draft posted at SI.com, Burke has the Browns selecting fourth, representing a finish of roughly three or four wins in 2013. This said, the Orange and Brown are presently forecasted to miss out on...

Indianapolis Colts: 2013 NFL Draft Recap

As Colts P Pat McAfee put it: the “Bjoern Supremacy.” Indy’s 1st overall pick (#24), Bjoern Werner. The 2013 NFL draft probably didn’t dazzle fans of the Indianapolis Colts the way they might have hoped. It was a “build from the inside-out” philosophy that ruled this draft, as evidenced by the team’s first four picks. First off the board with the 24th overall selecetion...

2013 NFL Draft Team Grades: Cleveland Browns

First Round: Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU I hate this pick. Mingo just ins't that good. Cleveland already got their pass rusher in free agency, and didn't need to take a chance on a bum like Mingo with the sixth overall selection. I think he will be a bust very early on, similar to Maybin in 2009. Cleveland will regret not taking Smith or Milliner here I believe...

Indianapolis Colts trade Jerry Hughes to Buffalo Bills for Kelvin Sheppard

The Indianapolis Colts have traded rush outside linebacker Jerry Hughes to the Buffalo Bills for inside linebacker Kelvin Sheppard. The Jerry Hughes era is done in Indianapolis. The disapointing first round pick has been shipped off to Buffalo and in return the Colts get a solid inside linebacker in Kelvin Sheppard. Hughes never fully developed with the Colts and never was able...

Browns make good move acquiring Bess

Sometimes, the best moves are the ones that arent planned. The trade to acquire veteran wide receiver Davone Bess might have been one of the best moves the Browns made over the three days of the NFL Draft. Even though he has played five NFL seasons, the Browns count him as part of the draft process. We view Bess as part of the draft and we were fortunate being able to trade back...

Judge denies motion for restraining order in Pilot Flying J case

(Note: We’ll try to keep an eye on this without going overboard in non-Browns news angles, but when something significant does occur, we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop.)

NFL rumors: Dwight Freeney lowers asking price

It's proven a tough free agent market for veteran defensive lineman and linebackers, as several either remain unsigned or had to take significant pay cuts to reach new agreements. An example of this has been Indianapolis Colts free agent Dwight Freeney, who has been forced to lower his asking price since the offseason began, according to Jeff Legwold of The Denver Post. Legwold...

Bills trade LB Sheppard to Colts for LB Hughes

The Buffalo Bills aren't finished tinkering with their linebackers this offseason. Buffalo traded Kelvin Sheppard to the Indianapolis Colts for Jerry Hughes on Monday in a swap of linebackers two days after the NFL draft. Sheppard, a 2011 second-round pick from LSU, has been inconsistent in two seasons in Buffalo. He had 138 tackles and two sacks in 31 games, including 24 starts...
