  Browns | Alex Mack may be limited this offseason    Thu Mar 26, 01:58 PM

Cleveland Browns C Alex Mack (leg) said he may be limited during offseason workouts because his goal is to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: They'll be careful with Mack until they have to have him on the field. There's no point in rushing him and they cannot afford to lose him again, as the line completely collapsed once he got hurt last year.

  Browns | May draft kicker in 2015    Wed Mar 25, 02:42 AM

  Browns | Johnny Manziel due back in April    Tue Mar 24, 08:46 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is expected back with the team for offseason workouts April 20 after completing more than two months of treatment.

Footballguys view: First and foremost, we hope Manziel can get his life back on track. After that, football is next. He has a ton of work to do in order to get on the football field as a starting quarterback. If Manziel is dedicated, then perhaps he could one day develop into a decent player--but we don't think he's going to revolutionize the position.

  Browns | Cleveland talks with Rob Housler    Mon Mar 23, 03:39 PM

Free-agent TE Rob Housler (Cardinals) has had talks with the Cleveland Browns, but no deal is imminent and no visit has been scheduled, according to a source. Housler is believed to be interested in joining the Browns.

Footballguys view: The Browns lost Jordan Cameron (Dolphins) in free agency, and they need help at the position. Housler is athletic and has decent upside, but he's never played up to his potential as a pro.

  Browns | Michael Bowie should be ready for camp    Sun Mar 22, 10:50 AM

Cleveland Browns OT Michael Bowie (shoulder) should be ready to participate once training camp begins, according to head coach Mike Pettine. He is expected to compete for the right tackle job if he is healthy.

Footballguys view: Bowie missed all of last season due to this shoulder injury. When healthy, Bowie is a decent run-blocker.

  Browns | Cleveland to sign Dwayne Bowe    Thu Mar 19, 01:49 PM

Free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe (Chiefs) is signing with the Cleveland Browns, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Hopefully a change of location helps Bowe finally (consistently) reach the pinnacle of his ability. As it stands, he has mostly been underwhelming and now again finds himself in a situation with a shaky quarterback. Can he help elevate Connor Shaw, Johnny Manziel or Josh McCown? He's never been that guy before and we think his impact in fantasy will be limited again by his situation as well as his inability to raise the level of his game.

  Browns | Cleveland not banking on Johnny Manziel    Tue Mar 17, 02:23 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel won't be counted on for the 2015 season, especially after the Browns offered a late first-round pick to try to acquire Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford.

Footballguys view: Good, the Browns are finally thinking clearly. Manziel COULD work out as a pro quarterback, but the odds are stacked against him. It's more likely that he'll just be a gadget quarterback during his time (brief?) in the NFL. Cleveland could also select a quarterback in the first couple of rounds in this year's draft.

  Browns | Tramon Williams signs     Mon Mar 16, 02:56 PM

Free-agent CB Tramon Williams (Packers) signed a three-year deal worth $21 million Monday, March 16, according to sources.

Footballguys view: This signing shows a lack of confidence (for good reason) in last year's first-round pick CB Justin Gilbert. Williams isn't quite the player he used to be, but he's still a solid corner. He'll start opposite Joe Haden to give the Browns a potent duo at the position.

  Browns | Cleveland pursued Larry Fitzgerald    Mon Mar 16, 01:38 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald was a trade target for the Cleveland Browns before he restructured his contract and stayed with the Cardinals, according to a source.

Footballguys view: No surprise really. Cleveland is desperate for help at the wide receiver position, and Fitzgerald would have really helped. The Browns were one of several teams to inquire about Fitzgerald's availability.

  Browns | Cleveland offered a first for Sam Bradford    Mon Mar 16, 09:59 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford had an offer made for him by the Cleveland Browns, and a first-round pick was believed to be offered, according to NFL Network's Charley Casserly.

Footballguys view: Chip Kelly was brimming when he told reporters that the Eagles had been offered a first-round pick for Bradford last week. The Browns would make a lot of sense because they don't have a true answer at quarterback. Nobody knows if Johnny Manziel will ever be a quality starter, and Josh McCown is merely a part-time starter.

  Browns | Cleveland hopes to add Dwayne Bowe    Sun Mar 15, 12:21 PM

Free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe (Chiefs) is meeting with the Cleveland Browns, and the Browns hope to sign Bowe during the visit.

Footballguys view: The Browns need all the help they can get at the WR position. They added Brian Hartline in free agency earlier this month, but Bowe would be a true WR1. At least, he's got the potential to be a WR1. Bowe is talented, but motivation has always been a problem for him. We'll see if a fresh start is just what he needs to play up to his talent level.

  Browns | Barkevious Mingo expects to be ready for camp    Sat Mar 14, 12:46 PM

Cleveland Browns LB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) said he believes he will be ready for the start of training camp after undergoing shoulder surgery this offseason.

Footballguys view: Getting a pass-rusher like Mingo back will certainly help the Browns defense. Mingo said the shoulder's range of motion is good, but he has not been able to weight lift at this point.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel still in rehab    Fri Mar 13, 10:31 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is still in inpatient rehab, but he is likely at the point where he can leave the facility for brief stints. Earlier reports said that he had left the facility.

Footballguys view: Manziel is on the road to recovery, and we applaud him. It's not about football right now. First, he needs to get his life back on track--then he can get back to his pro career.

  Browns | Cleveland pursuing Dwayne Bowe    Thu Mar 12, 07:07 PM

Free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe (Chiefs) is an option for the Cleveland Browns at wide receiver.

Footballguys view: They desperately need bodies again, with Josh Gordon looking at another suspension. Bowe has been underwhelming though and we don't expect great things from him in this offense if this comes to pass, which it might not.

  Browns | Stevie Johnson an option for Browns    Thu Mar 12, 07:04 PM

Free-agent WR Stevie Johnson (49ers) is being pursued by the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Johnson has had flashes in his career but landed with a splat in San Francisco and doesn't look like more than damaged goods right now. We're not sure Josh McCown and the Browns is a recipe for a career reboot, but with the desperation of the Browns at receiver and Johnson getting a lot of targets, he might be a decent PPR option as a No. 4 receiver.

  Browns | Thaddeus Lewis re-signs    Thu Mar 12, 06:09 PM

Free-agent QB Thaddeus Lewis (Browns) re-signed with the Cleveland Browns on an undisclosed deal Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: You can assume he is a camp arm and no more, with Josh McCown, Johnny Manziel and Connor Shaw in town, there really isn't a reason for Lewis. Not that any of those quarterbacks are exactly tremendous in their own rights currently.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron re-signs with Browns    Thu Mar 12, 05:57 PM

Free-agent TE Jordan Cameron (Browns) re-signed with the Cleveland Browns Thursday, March 12, for two years and $15 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Scratch that people...false report here. Cameron is actually signed with the Dolphins now. As we like to say, things change pretty quickly around here.

  Browns | Charles Clay visiting Cleveland    Thu Mar 12, 05:56 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay is visiting the Cleveland Browns, according to Miami executive Mike Tannenbaum.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the signing of Jordan Cameron changes the possibility of Clay in Cleveland. Clay is a solid tight end, but heading to the Browns and Josh McCown doesn't exactly promise an improvement.

Free-agent CB Perrish Cox (49ers) is scheduled to visit the Cleveland Browns Thursday, March 12, although he is set to meet with the Washington Redskins before that.

Footballguys view: Cox is going to get a good payday because of the cornerback market and his career-best season in 2014. Last season Cox started 14 games, and was credited with 53 tackles, 17 passes defended, and 5 interceptions.

  Browns | Miles Austin not expected back with Browns    Tue Mar 10, 11:38 AM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Miles Austin is unlikely to re-sign with the team after the Browns signed WR Brian Hartline Monday, March 9. Hartline is basically a younger version of Austin.

Footballguys view: No shocker here. Austin isn't the same player he used to be, and the Browns are moving in a different direction. He may not get that many offers on the open market.

  Browns | Express interest in Darrelle Revis     Tue Mar 10, 10:32 AM

Impeding free-agent CB Darrelle Revis (Patriots) is getting interest from the Cleveland Browns, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Revis and Joe Haden would be a potent combination in the secondary. The Patriots are working feverishly to clear cap space in order to keep Revis, but several other teams are swirling around like vultures.

  Browns | Brian Hartline signing with Cleveland    Mon Mar 9, 08:11 PM

Free-agent WR Brian Hartline (Dolphins) has agreed to terms with the Cleveland Browns. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Hartline is a solid--yet unspectacular--signing for the Browns. He'll be among the top targets in 2015 with slot WR Andrew Hawkins. Hartline can run good routes and is fearless running over the middle. He should become a favorite target for QB Josh McCown.

  Browns | Cleveland fine with Josh McCown as QB    Mon Mar 9, 06:33 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown could be the team's starting quarterback in 2015, because head coach Mike Pettine said he would be comfortable with McCown as the starter.

Footballguys view: They made the move to add McCown with the idea that he would be the starter. Nobody knows what the future holds for Johnny Manziel. He's currently in rehab, but should be able to compete for the starting job in training camp.

  Browns | CLE interested in Jermaine Gresham    Mon Mar 9, 03:34 PM

Free-agent TE Jermaine Gresham (Bengals) will be pursued by the Cleveland Browns if Gresham does not sign with the Oakland Raiders.

Footballguys view: Gresham is a decent all-purpose tight end, but he's never *quite* played up to his potential. The Raiders have strong interest, and they still have to be considered the frontrunners at this time.

  Browns | Ed Dickson appears to be a target    Sun Mar 8, 11:12 AM

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent TE Ed Dickson has received interest from the Cleveland Browns this weekend.

Footballguys view: Dickson has not quite played up to his potential in the pros. He's a good move tight end with the upside to be a decent starter. The Browns are expecting to lose Jordan Cameron in free agency, so they could turn to a guy like Dickson to fill the void.

  Browns | Buster Skrine receiving interest    Sun Mar 8, 10:06 AM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent CB Buster Skrine was contacted by eight teams Saturday, March 7. The Browns remain interested in re-signing Skrine this offseason.

Footballguys view: That's nice and all, but they may not be able to afford Skrine. He tied for fourth in the NFL with 18 passes defensed in 2014, and Skrine is one of the top cornerbacks on the open market. He could command anywhere from about $6 million to $8 million a year on his new deal.

  Browns | Trent Cole to visit Cleveland    Fri Mar 6, 10:17 PM

Free-agent LB Trent Cole (Eagles) will visit with the Cleveland Browns Sunday, March 8.

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer said Thursday, March 5, that it is good for both sides to go their separate ways.

Footballguys view: Why is there a question mark on the headline? The Browns added Josh McCown this offseason, and he'll be competing with Johnny Manziel for the starting job. Hoyer will have to look for a gig elsewhere.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel needs to focus on football    Tue Mar 3, 05:29 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel needs to have an obsession with football, according to offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. 'It's truly a lifestyle to be an NFL quarterback,' DeFilippo said. 'It's not just a job. It's all-consuming. You need to sleep, eat, do everything fast and just think about football all the time.'

Footballguys view: That's all nice and well, but first he needs to get his life back on track. Manziel entered rehab earlier this year to take care of his alcohol problem. Once he's out, then Manziel needs to have an unhealthy obsession with football. He's got a long climb ahead of him if he's ever going to live up to the hype.

  Browns | Brian Hartline to visit Cleveland    Tue Mar 3, 08:46 AM

Free-agent WR Brian Hartline (Dolphins) will visit the Cleveland Browns Tuesday, March 3.

  Browns | Josh McCown expects to start    Mon Mar 2, 01:44 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is expecting to start after signing a three-year, $14 million deal last week that includes $6.25 million in guarantees and $6 million in incentives.

Footballguys view: When McCown signed on the dotted line, we pretty much felt he would be the starter to begin the season...and maybe he stays in the lineup for the entire year. McCown went just 1-10 as the starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year. He will compete with QBs Johnny Manziel and Connor Shaw this summer.

  Browns | Josh McCown to work with Johnny Manziel    Mon Mar 2, 07:18 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown will work with QB Johnny Manziel to help him get used to the NFL.

Footballguys view: So last year wasn't a "redshirt" season for the rookie? We're hoping that Manziel can get his life back on track as he's in rehab right now. McCown is a decent veteran, but he's about what Brian Hoyer was last year. The move to add McCown wasn't any sort of upgrade.

  Browns | Josh McCown guaranteed $6.25 million    Sat Feb 28, 05:33 PM

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown has $6.25 million in guarantees in his three-year deal, and he'll make $5.25 million in 2015. The value of his deal is $14 million with the chance to make $20 million, according to a source that has seen the contract.

Footballguys view: We doubt that McCown makes it through all three years of his deal. He's a temporary fix to what has been a permanent problem for the Browns since they got their team back in Cleveland. McCown should begin this season as the starter, but he'll have to beat out Johnny Manziel in training camp. Manziel is in rehab right now, but the Browns are hopeful he can be their QB of the future.

Footballguys view: The Browns get essentially what they had last year in Brian Hoyer. McCown is a good veteran, but he's not a long-term answer. McCown has a good relationship with offensive coordinator John DeFilippo from their days with the Oakland Raiders.
