This morning the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that tight end Fred Davis is deciding between the Browns and the Washington Redskins. Sounds like tight end Fred Davis is down to two teams: The #Redskins and the #Browns are very interested in signing him. He’s healthy now — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 14, 2013 ESPN’s Adam Schefter also reported that the Browns have “serious interest” in the former Washington tight end- One league source familiar with thinking of Washington free-agent TE Fred Davis said Redskins and Browns “are serious about signing him.” — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 14, 2013 Davis was injured in the Redskins’ 7th game of the season, rupturing his Achilles tendon. According to the Washington Post back in February, Davis is ahead of schedule in his rehab. Davis is a Toledo, Ohio native who has had some success with the Redskins. His best year was 2011, in which he caught 59 passes for 796 yards and 3 touchdowns. For his career, Davis has caught 155 passes for 1,973 yards and 12 touchdowns. Davis is 27 years old, and would easily be the best receiving TE on the Browns roster should he choose Cleveland. [Related: Browns add Gary Barnidge]

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.

Patriots lose out on Josh Cribbs, signs with Cardinals?

So that's that RT @marykaycabot: Josh Cribbs to Arizona, source told Pd.— Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) March 14, 2013 So maybe "losing out" is a little bit of a stretch, but the Patriots were pursuing him and at one point were the favorites to sign him.

Banner Report: The Offensive Line

You may remember back in 2010 (you know the last time there was a complete overhaul in Berea) we wanted to give incoming President Mike Holmgren a hand evaluating the roster. We are nothing if not equal opportunity. The Browns have a completely new group in charge this year. Joe Banner, Mike Lombardi, Rob Chudzinski, Norv Turner and Ray Horton take over a 5-11 team. They have plenty...
