Mark Sanchez will always be news in Cleveland because the Browns traded out of that pick in the 2009 NFL draft. The Browns received the 17th and 57th picks in exchange for the 5th pick in the draft.  In addition to the picks, the Browns also received quarterback Bret Ratliff, defensive lineman Kenyon Coleman and safety Abe Elam.  Now, the player that the Browns traded away from, Sanchez, is having his work ethic questioned.

“We have to bring in another quarterback that will make [Sanchez] work at practice,” said one player, according to the newspaper. “He’s lazy and content because he knows he’s not going to be benched.”

In addition to that there was additional commentary coveting Peyton Manning should he become available in free agency.

The Browns may not have any of the three players that came over in that deal, but there is little doubt that they ended up getting a good player in center Alex Mack.  Mack has been to a Pro Bowl and even battled through a bout of appendicitis in the 2011 season, not missing a game.
