Waiting For Next Year:
Dave from @SteelersDepot was a stud guest on the podcast even if he did defend James Harrison’s hitting style. Dude is prolific, informed and generally about as knowledgeable as anyone I’ve talked NFL with in my life. I haven’t talked to him since the NFL season ended, so I tracked him down to talk about the Browns, the AFC North, the intricacies of NFL finance, and a whole host of other topics.
Great stuff from Dave. If you have a chance, follow him on twitter @SteelersDepot and check his website, specifically his post on the NFL Salary Floor.

According to the National Football Post, some people around the NFL believe the Cleveland Browns could end up deciding to trade quarterback Brandon Weeden, since their new front office isn’t very fond of him as a player.
Is trading Brandon Weeden a possibility for the Browns? Some around the league think so. The belief is that the new management team of Joe Banner and Mike Lombardi...
The National Football Post writes that some around the NFL believe the Cleveland Browns could look to trade QB Brandon Weeden at some point this offseason.
NFP adds that there’s a “belief” that the Browns new front office isn’t very high on Weeden as an NFL quarterback and could try to trade him now in the hopes of securing “something” in return for the him.
The Browns should have played Colt McCoy at the quarterback position in 2012 and not using a first round draft pick to pick a quarterback that is 4 years older than McCoy. Yes this was written in an article featured on Bleacher Report. Don’t worry I’ll give you non-believers a link to read it for yourselves. They also go on to rank the top 65 quarterback who played in 2012...

The Browns may feel trading Weeden now could get them a larger return on what they consider a wasted first round draft pick. It was evident Michael...
During the 2012 NFL Draft the Cleveland Browns shocked almost everyone by selecting 28-year-old quarterback Brandon Weeden with the 22nd pick in the first round. Weeden went on to earn the team’s starting job as a 29-year-old rookie, but produced disappointing results. Now the Browns could shock the NFL again by putting Weeden on the trade block after just one season.
While the Cleveland Browns front office looks to address the quarterback position this offseason, ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr feels that, if the team were to desire to do so via the draft, they could be in for a bit of a gamble as current quarterback Brandon Weeden could have been the top passer taken had he been able to wait until 2013 to declare for the NFL.
“Obviously you look at...
