  Browns | Heiden cleared for contact drills    Wed Aug 5, 12:26 AM

Marla Ridenour, of The Akron Beacon Journal, reports Cleveland Browns TE Steve Heiden (knee) was cleared for contact drills earlier this week. Head coach Eric Mangini is excited to have him back on the field, as the Browns are looking to fill a big hole in the starting lineup with the loss of TE Kellen Winslow during the offseason. Mangini said he likes Heiden because he has soft hands, the ability to read defenses to the point where he knows where to sit down in the zone and he can be an effective blocker. Zach Swartz, of The Columbus Dispatch, reports Heiden took part in his first practice Monday, Aug. 3.

Footballguys view: Heiden and Robert Royal will help keep second-year TE Martin Rucker from having enough value to be worth carrying in fantasy leagues.

  Browns | Heiden does not know when he will practice    Thu May 21, 07:02 PM

James Walker, of ESPN.com, reports Cleveland Browns TE Steve Heiden (knee) said he does not know when he will be able to begin practicing again since is still rehabbing from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a torn medial collateral ligament.

Footballguys view: Kellen Winslow is gone to Tampa, the Browns WRs are mostly inexperienced so the Browns could use some help from the TE position. When healthy Heiden will battle Robert Royal and Martin Rucker for playing time.
