Worst Team Pick: Langham was awful for Cleveland

In the last 30 years, the Browns have only taken three cornerbacks – Joe Haden, Eric Wright and Antonio Langham – in the first two rounds of the NFL draft. Suffice it to say, this is quite an anomaly. While none of these selections can be characterized as a total bust, it is quite clear who had the worst career. Drafted ninth overall in 1994, Langham had a productive rookie season...

Power Rankings: Cleveland Browns have had a top-10 offseason so far in 2014

Since the 2013 NFL season ended 10 weeks ago, every team in the NFL has made changes. Both winners and losers from last year have been busy making adjustments. Some have revamped their coaching staff. Some have turned over their roster. Some have done a little bit of both. But none, not a single one, have stood pat. During this firestorm of activity, every team believes they’ve...

Is Joe Haden good enough to support the Browns entire secondary?

In case you haven’t heard, the NFL is a passing league. Big surprise, right? Well, because of this, it is a top priority of every team to have an elite, shutdown corner. Fortunately, the Browns have just that in Joe Haden. Since being selected seventh overall in 2010, Haden has continued to improve. He may not be at the same level as Richard Sherman, Patrick Peterson and Darrelle...

Top-10 CB’s: Do the Browns need someone opposite Joe Haden?

Everyone has heard of Cleveland’s #1 cornerback and Pro-Bowler Joe Haden. He’s the definition of a shut-down corner, and is one of the best in the league. On the other side, however, the Browns have Buster Skrine. Nothing against the man, but he isn’t starting material…at least not for a team that should be shooting to make the playoffs. The Browns might want to think...

Cleveland Browns re-sign C Alex Mack

This deal came about in a roundabout fashion. The Browns started the situation off by using the transition tag on Mack, which would have paid him roughly 10 million dollars for the 2014 season if he had signed it. That 10 million dollar sum was the average of the top-10 offensive linemen in the league. You almost never see an interior offensive lineman, especially a center, get any...

Joe Haden, Cleveland Browns working on new contract

Cleveland Browns defensive back Joe Haden is among the premier secondary talents in the NFL and would have an unlimited choice of suitors if he opted to enter free agency after the 2014 season. But Haden doesn’t seem to be very interested in that idea, suggesting that he wants to be part of the Browns franchise when the organization turns itself around.

Following a successful free agency period, what will the Browns do next?.

Cleveland Browns General Manager Ray Farmer did something yesterday that not many of his predecessors did, and that was to give the fans an update on where he believes we stand following our successful foray into the free agency market. I have been critical of the veil of secrecy that always seems to surround the Browns, but I found it refreshing that Farmer not only took...

Talib’s contract with Denver raises bar for Haden extension in Cleveland

As the Denver Broncos back up the truck in attempt to topple Father Time, they decided to use the first day of the 2014 NFL free agency window to dump a ton of money into their defensive backfield. While they added TJ Ward, prying the hard-hitting safety from the claws of Browns fans, the deal that may ultimately impact Cleveland more is the six-year, $57 million contract given to...

Browns Position Outlook: Defensive Backfield

Defensive Backfield Current State Heading into the 2013 season, the defensive backfield was viewed as a slight weakness on an otherwise solid defense for the Cleveland Browns.

However, the Browns were surprisingly solid for much of the season in the defensive backfield...
