Waiting For Next Year:
In his weekly Sunday column, The Plain Dealer’s Terry Pluto indicates that CEO Joe Banner is looking for his team to use some of the cap room that they’ve saved.
When Joe Banner ran the business side of the Eagles, he liked to sign players before they reached free agency. Part of the reason the Browns have about $30 million left on the salary cap is they want to sign some of their current players.
They will begin serious talks with center Alex Mack, a free agent at the end of the season. He will make about $5.5 million between his regular salary and a roster bonus. He is a major part of the line and has never missed a snap since being a first-round pick in 2009.
The surprising name in here may be guard John Greco, who is battling for a starting guard spot after holding down the left guard position last season after the injury to Jason Pinkston.
John Greco has impressed, and is on the final year of an $800,000 deal. The Browns may consider an extension, especially if Greco establishes himself as a starting guard in training camp.
It’s clear that one of the Browns’ main goals in the upcoming year or two will be to lockup its young core that is all under the age of 30.

In an arbitrary segment rife with arbitrary individuals, former Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin referred to Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas as a “fat guy” who doesn’t impact a game in the way others on a list (provided by NFL Network) do. Turn up your volume a bit and take a listen for yourself.
The whole segment seems to be of the “embrace debate” culture...

Count Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little among those not enamored with the NFL’s new rule that requires all players, save for punters and kickers, to wear thigh and knee pads. Since 1994 players have had the option of wearing the somewhat cumbersome pads, with many NFLers choosing not to wear them, saying the leg protection is uncomfortable and slows them down.
The two game suspension of Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Brown will leave a gaping hole at hideout for the start of the season.

The Bon Jovi concert scheduled to kick off the Browns’ season at FirstEnergy Stadium has been canceled, per Cleveland’s NewsNet5.
The event, billed as a “major announcement” complete with exorbitant fan fare from the team less than one month ago, was also to include a “Fan Fest,” performance by Cleveland native Michael Stanley and the Resonators and a Browns pep rally...

Hey, Mary Kay: I have been a Browns fan for well over 30 years. This year I still have that sinking they will be terrible again. Do you have the same feeling, or have I been trained to think that way? — Kevin Sandy, Navarre, Ohio

When the going gets tough, the Cleveland Twitterverse helps the Browns replace Bon Jovi to help kick off the 2013 NFL season. Will the concert be cancelled for good? Will an alternate act be brought in to help sell it? Don’t say that we aren’t doing our part to help. Oh and it’s probably not possible, but if I had to choose a band that I’d go see and could fill up a stadium...
Michael Irvin went so far as to call Browns' star OL Joe Thomas nothing more than a "fat guy whose job it is is to stand in front of another fat guy for three seconds."
Cleveland Browns fans were excited to Fan Fest this year; not because the team is expected to actually be competitive for once. No, the excitement really had nothing at all to do with football or the Browns. It was for the Fan Kickoff Concert featuring legendary rock band Bon Jovi.
Go ahead. Squeal like a little school girl now. If I lived in Cleveland I know I would have.
