A great move right now would be to sign Nick Mangold center released by the NY JETS. Mack left the Browns and made a big difference for the Falcons. As well as putting the Browns QB's in for a lot of abuse. Mangold is great in the locker room which the Browns need help with also.

Mangold was released to save money. Since he was a high priced veteran player. Jets are getting rid of older players.

Even as an older player, Mangold (OSU Alum) still one of the top 5 centers in the NFL.

Browns sign 3 lineman including Zietler from the Bengals. Should be a major upgrade and the ability not injury every QB the Browns can sign. Signing Britt at WR is an upgrade. Now what they do with Pryor.

The Osweiller signing and word out is to cut him. Not sure yet. See what happens. Hope they do not plan on keeping him.

It was bittersweet rooting for him,but to have a year like he did with what they had was pretty impressive.

Heard yesterday Pryor didn't get back with Cleveland to see if they would match the Redskins offer.Sounds like he wanted out of Cleveland,he probably relished the thought of playing with Cousins.

Kind of showed how responsible Pryor is. Besides he is looking for big money because he knows football is the only legal way for him to support his ego. Being part of a team does not matter as much as being paid. Talent is there to make the change to WR. Still a lot to learn and to be able to do it for the entire season.

Now Mary Kay Cabot reports he did come back and they offered him a little lower price per year but it was for multiple years.He is taking huge gamble.One injury or bad year could cost him dearly or if he is lucky he could strike it big.His agent probably had a lot to do with it.He is known to be stubborn.Supposedly three other teams besides the Browns had made him better offers than the Redskins (one year deal)

Best case scenario, they are contenders 3 years from now. Or beginning their Nth rebuild.

Sounds like Garrett at #1 is a foregone conclusion. Unless they are driving up the value to trade down.

I'm close to the Browns and one theme has reared its ugly head over the years...................................................... cheapskates . Poor ownership has killed off a diamond. Sure, they lay out the bucks for a marquee player, a star but shortchange everything else. He , they watched star after star leave the organization without making a solid effort to keep them. Then wnoder why it takes so long to develope or find a star replacement, producing another hole in the team. Stockpiling draft picks ? They'll trade them away and move down to cheaper players. Cleveland sucks from poor owners who have fired many capable coaches and front off guys who move on to produce good teams. Belicheck ring a bell ? And the latest "gimmick" will bite them in the butt -- "Moneyball" with a former basball guy finding inexpensive ( read CHEAP ) players to "build" with. Crap organization that makes a TON of money from dumbazz fans.

Read an article about the GM the Browns let go before the Draft of Manziel. He said Manziel was not even on the draft board. Then the owner wanted Manziel. He had no idea why the Browns drafted Manziel except for Haslam. When the owner wants something he gets it. But that is not good football decision. Which is why he then said don't be surprised if Haslam drafts a QB at #1.

Talk about the Browns #1. To high for a QB who played just 1 year in college. Could be just talk or Haslam wanting him after not taking Wentz last year. As well as the other teams wanting Trubisky before the Browns pick at #12

Browns made some moves and picked up 3 players that will play this year. All three can be game changers.
Then the rumor about maybe getting Cousins at QB from Washington. The Redskins think they will lose him in a year may try to get something for him now.

That was a quality first round for the Browns, and I say that as a Steelers fan. Two solid defensive players and a pass catcher.

Browns release 10 year vet TE Gary Barnidge. Who had 55 catches last year. Broncos players are wanting him.

Drafting Kiser in the second round. Could send him to Washington for Cousins. Keep options open.

Picked up a lot of players that can play now. With filling needs. The QB position has no clear starter. Kiser is not ready yet. But whoever is the QB will have an improved O Line, RB's and Receivers. That will help the QB's that got abused last year. As well as help on defense. Should be a better year for the Browns
