New book, Trading Up Colt: “The Browns leapt into ‘win now mode’ by drafting the 28-year-old Weeden in the first round. The question is not whether McCoy wins the starting job, but whether he will even be on the Browns roster when the season starts. The Browns may have already tried to trade him, and in my opinion, the decision to give McCoy the first team reps at the only OTA session open to the media was a ploy to rebuild his trade value.

McCoy is a swell guy. I’d be happy if he was the Browns backup next year and I think he’d see the field. But relations between him and Berea appear stained and I’d be even happier for him if he got a fresh start someplace else. Here are five teams that I think would make a good fit…” [Jimmy Weinland/Dawg Pound Daily]

Cavs’ draft pick Danny Green makes it: “”When I got cut from Cleveland, they weren’t one of the best teams in the NBA at the time, so I had some doubts,” Green said. “I didn’t think I was going to get back into the league. I wasn’t sure it was going to happen for me. When I was let go from here the first time, teams weren’t calling. I didn’t think it was going to ever happen then. I was home for two months and I didn’t know what was going on.” [Newsday]

The Browns 2012 dream scenario is a .500 record: “The Browns reap the rewards of a third straight successful draft and produce their first non-losing season since 2007. Team president Mike Holmgren and general manager Tom Heckert are vindicated for making the right moves, and head coach Pat Shurmur shows what he can do when he has a full offseason with a team. While this isn’t a playoff team yet, this season proves that the team is headed in the right direction.” [Jamison Hensley/NFL Nation Blog]

Get on board: “Even if we didn’t adjust our expectations for this Tigers team down at all due to their slow start, asking them to play at a 93 win pace is no small task, and realistically, some of the struggles the team has had reveal flaws that suggest that Detroit isn’t as good as they were thought to be before the season began. Without Alex Avila and Jhonny Peralta hitting at All-Star levels, this offense just isn’t the juggernaut that it was expected to be, and the pitching is getting betrayed by lousy defensive support.

The Tigers can still win the AL Central, but the early advantage that the Indians have built suggests that they should no longer be expected to come out on top. Cleveland is now the team to beat in that division.” [Dave Cameron/Fangraphs]

2012 impact rookies: “With Peyton Hillis injured much of last year the Browns rushing attack was poor. Richardson was the best back in the draft and is an every down player. No matter who is at quarterback, in order for the Browns to be successful Richardson has to produce and he will. Cleveland’s offensive line is more than adequate enough to create opening for Richardson. I expect him to gain 1,000-plus yards.” [Greg Gabriel/National Football Post]
