Despite persistent trade rumors during this weekend, QB Colt McCoy participated in voluntary workouts with the Cleveland Browns on Monday. Undeterred by the Browns selection of QB Brandon Weeden, McCoy showed up to camp despite not knowing what the future holds for him. It is believed that the Browns selected Weeden in order to become the teams starter and given his age, soon to be 29, he is not really a prospect that you place on the bench for a few seasons in order to groom him.

Rumors suggested that the Browns ould ship McCoy to Houston in exchange for WR Jacoby Jones. It remains to be seen what McCoy’s worth is on the trade market. McCoy has posted a career 6-15 overall record as a starter, but he has not been surrounded with a vast array of offensive talent during his time in Clevela...

NFL Draft: Vikings say Browns weren’t alone targeting Richardson

It has certainly been far less of a talking point for Browns fans, but the compensation used to move from four to three certainly could have been used elsewhere in the 2012 draft had it not been used to grab Trent Richardson. It is possible that those picks could have been used in the pursuit of Kendall Wright or one of the other receivers in a first round trade-up scenario. Alas...

Browns Secure Franchise RB With Richardson

The Cleveland Browns traded up to the No. 3 spot in the NFL Draft to secure running back Trent Richardson. Fantasy Spin: Richardson has stud potential as a fantasy back, and potentially right away. Should be the No. 1 pick in keeper drafts and an enticing selection as a higher-end No. 2 running back in standard drafts as well. Cleveland gets a major boost after averaging a mere 3...

Eric Mangini says he regrets bringing the Spygate scandal to light

By bringing the Spygate scandal to light, Mangini...

Browns expect starters from first three picks

The Browns went into the draft with the mission of reshaping their offense and that is exactly what they did by taking running back Trent Richardson third, quarterback Brandon Weeden 22nd, right tackle Mitchell Schwartz 37th and wide receiver Travis Benjamin 100th overall with their fifth pick of the draft.
