Found January 25, 2013 on The Penalty Flag:
The 2012 season is over for the Cleveland Browns, and now we look onto the potential 2013 Cleveland Browns roster changes. There will be potentially 19 players hitting free agency in 2013, and that doesn’t include the players new Head Coach Rob Chudzinski decides to let go as well. The first sign of good news for the Browns is the offensive line stays intact, but only if Chudzinski wants to keep it that way. Norv Turner is the new offensive coordinator, and he prefers the man/power blocking scheme. This team has been running the zone/stretch for the past couple of seasons, but it’s also been changing coaches almost every two seasons.

  • as a browns fan i am happy to see Jimmy Haslam making the changes that he has,but the one big thing he needs to do is get a veteran QB.someone who can train and mentor younger QB'S . it has long been a problem of the browns that whenever we get a QB with some potential we let the the old crappy one train him. until we get a well seasoned veteran that can mentor the younger QB'S nothing will ever change with the browns
  • #1-get the best cornerback you can. #2-get 2 or three linebackers that can play aggressively in the 3-4. #3-Get at least one good defensive end who can pressure the QB. This leaves NO room for offensive talent and we could use an athletic OG. I want 7 to 10 wins THIS YEAR-Tired of waiting. Tired of the management making the wrong decisions, year after year.

Defensive change for Browns causing confusion

The good news for the Cleveland Browns, new defensive coordinator Ray Horton interviewed with eight NFL teams for a head coaching position. The bad news? Obviously no one signed him.
