  Browns | Cleveland expected to work out QBs prospects    Wed Mar 22, 04:23 PM

North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky and Clemson QB Deshaun Watson are expected to have private workouts with the Cleveland Browns before the 2017 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Browns have two first-round picks in the 2017 NFL draft. They have the first-overall pick, but neither quarterback should be considered in that spot. Instead, the Browns could draft either Trubisky or Watson with the 12th-overall pick.

  Browns | Kenny Britt not sweating QB situation    Thu Mar 16, 10:22 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt said he believes the quarterback situation will be straightened out. 'They said they are going to get the problem fixed, and I believe that they will,' Britt said. 'Regardless of who they have under center, it is my job to make him look good.'

Footballguys view: If Britt does sweat the QB situation, he's got plenty of $100 bills to wipe his brow with after getting a four-year deal with $17 million guaranteed from the Browns.

  Browns | Cleveland to host Deshaun Watson    Thu Mar 16, 09:15 PM

Clemson QB Deshaun Watson will visit the Cleveland Browns and have a private workout, according to league sources.

Footballguys view: We're not sure the Browns pull the trigger, but they have to do their due diligence. Nobody believes Brock Osweiler is the answer there. Watson is a dynamic quarterback, and while there are concerns his game might not translate to the NFL level, we don't share those concerns. He could be a nice fit in Cleveland, especially if they don't rush him onto the field.

  Browns | James Wright claimed by Browns    Tue Mar 14, 05:17 PM

Free-agent WR James Wright (Bengals) was claimed off waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals by the Cleveland Browns Tuesday, March 14.

Footballguys view: The Browns are looking for bodies at the WR position. Wright is no lock for the 53-man roster, but he does have a previous working relationship with Hue Jackson.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell being called on    Mon Mar 13, 03:17 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has received trade interest from at least three teams, according to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler. The Browns placed a second-round tender on their restricted free agent.

Footballguys view: The second-round tender means he won't get signed by another team. However, other teams look to be interested in Crowell. He finished last year as the 14th-best RB in standard scoring leagues by rushing for 952 yards and seven touchdowns.

  Browns | Kevin Zeitler financials    Mon Mar 13, 03:51 AM

Updating a previous item, Cleveland Browns G Kevin Zeitler will make $31.5 million in guaranteed money over the length of his five-year, $60 million deal. He has a $12 million signing bonus and $6 million fully guaranteed in 2017, followed by salaries of $10 million from 2018-2020 and $12 million in 2021.

  Browns | Myles Garrett a lock for the top pick?    Sun Mar 12, 09:11 PM

Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett being selected by the Cleveland Browns with the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft is a 'done deal,' according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

Footballguys view: Garrett should be the top pick in the draft. The Browns need a QB, but this is a weak class at the position and no QB is worth of the no.1 selection. Garrett is a disruptive player who can use multiple moves to get after the passer. He's comparable to a young Julius Peppers (Panthers).

  Browns | Brock Osweiler sealed Texans' fate with fight    Sun Mar 12, 01:05 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler 'reacted negatively' to head coach Bill O'Brien's decision to turn to him in Week 17 after starter Tom Savage was injured in the second quarter of a loss to the Tennessee Titans. An argument reportedly ensued and the two men eventually engaged in a 'physical confrontation that got ugly', according to a source.

Footballguys view: Osweiler and O'Brien's relationship has been described as "horrible" by team sources. A physical altercation (or whatever happened) would help define that relationship.

  Browns | Kenny Britt financial details    Sun Mar 12, 10:19 AM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt's four-year, $32.5 million contract includes $10.5 million in guaranteed money at signing. He will make $17 million over the first two years of his deal.

Footballguys view: Nobody knows who the QB is going to be with the Browns, but Britt should be the top target in the passing game. He'll have WR3 value (with upside) for fantasy owners no matter who is tossing passes for the Browns.

  Browns | Cleveland looking to move Brock Osweiler    Sat Mar 11, 02:45 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler is being shopped to other teams in a trade, and the Browns are looking for a third-round pick in return, according to sources. The Browns are open to adding a fifth-round pick in the trade and are willing to pick up as much as half of the $16 million guaranteed in Osweiler's contract. The team likely will release Osweiler if they are not able to trade him.

Footballguys view: This was the early word after the trade for Osweiler, and it sounds like that's still the plan. Osweiler failed with the Texans as their starter, but some team might be willing to add him as a reserve quarterback with playoff experience.

  Browns | Door closing on Jimmy Garopppolo trade talk?    Fri Mar 10, 01:16 PM

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo will not be traded to the Cleveland Browns no matter what they offer, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Schefter has been adamant that no trade was going to happen. The Browns need to find a QB of the future, and that could be Garoppolo if they could pry him away from the Patriots.

  Browns | Cody Kessler could start in 2017?    Fri Mar 10, 12:57 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler will get a chance to enter 2017 as the starting quarterback, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Browns may not be able to trade for Jimmy Garoppolo, so starting Kessler would make sense. They could get through 2017 with Kessler as the guy then try to make a play for Garoppolo when he's on the open market in 2018.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III was released by the team Friday, March 10.

  Browns | CLE to continue pursuit of Jimmy Garoppolo    Thu Mar 9, 06:30 PM

The Cleveland Browns will continue their efforts to trade for New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Browns have acquired a lot of picks and it seems for more than just getting young players. Garoppolo was someone we thought could be moved this offseason if someone had enough picks. If the Browns acquire him though, can he succeed with the wide receivers the team has? On the plus side, they did add some talent to the offensive line which might give a new quarterback time to throw.

  Browns | Robert Griffin III likely to be cut    Thu Mar 9, 03:48 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is expected to be released after Cleveland acquired QB Brock Osweiler.

Footballguys view: This is a bit of a shock if the Browns are thinking of moving Osweiler. On the other hand, it would be a strong signal they will grab a quarterback early in this draft.

  Browns | Brock Osweiler not the future?    Thu Mar 9, 03:44 PM

Impending Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler is not necessarily the future of the franchise, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Instead, the belief is that Cleveland wanted the second-round pick from Houston and was willing to absorb the salary of Osweiler to facilitate the deal.

Footballguys view: The theory is the Browns can move him and hold onto the dead money so they don't have to be overly generous like the Houston Texans. They will continue to accrue picks if they can and we imagine they didn't see anything compelling any more than anyone else in Osweiler's tape from 2016.

  Browns | Cleveland acquiring Brock Osweiler    Thu Mar 9, 03:43 PM

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler, a 2017 sixth-round pick and a 2018 second-round pick are being sent to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a 2017 fourth-round pick, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Browns got a haul, and rumor has it they could turn Osweiler around for more picks. They have the room to hang onto the dead money in his contract, so that's not insane. What is insane is the waste of time, effort and money the Texans spent on Osweiler. One of the worst signings, all-time.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns OG Joel Bitonio's new deal is five years in length and worth $51 million, including $23 million guaranteed, according to sources.

Footballguys view: It's a lot for a banged up guy, but if he can stay healthy Bitonio will be the cornerstone of a rebooted Browns offensive line. Hopefully a cornerstone made of cement and not Silly Putty.

  Browns | JC Tretter to Browns    Thu Mar 9, 11:22 AM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent C JC Tretter is expected to sign with the Cleveland Browns Thursday, March 9.

Footballguys view: Along with retaining Joel Bitonio, this should help an offensive line which was pretty bad last season. Tretter is an immediate upgrade at center if he can stay healthy.

  Browns | Joel Bitonio lands new deal    Thu Mar 9, 10:59 AM

Cleveland Browns OG Joel Bitonio has agreed to a 'monster' extension, according to a source.

Footballguys view: With Alex Mack long gone and Joe Thomas likely not long for the unit, the Browns needed to retain one of their offensive linemen. Bitonio has missed 17 of 32 games in his career though, so there is an element of risk.

  Browns | Kenny Britt headed to Browns    Thu Mar 9, 09:45 AM

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Kenny Britt has agreed to sign with the Cleveland Browns Thursday, March 9. The deal is for four years and $32.5 million with $17 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: Britt had a solid season for the Rams in 2016, and he might be a decent fit across from Corey Coleman. He can be a downfield threat but let's remember that before 2016 he'd had a string of mediocre seasons with both the Rams and Tennessee Titans. It took career highs in targets and receptions for him to break 1,000 yards for the first time in his career.

Bouye and Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent SS Johnathan Cyprien, according to sources.

Footballguys view: With over $100 million in cap space, the Browns can go shopping for whatever free agent they want to. Expect them to reshape their roster drastically through free agency and the draft.

  Browns | Many teams eyeing Terrelle Pryor     Mon Mar 6, 02:54 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor has drawn interest from the New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers, Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles, according to sources. Other teams are expected to show interest, too. Pryor is an offseason priority for the Browns, but both sides are far apart in negotiations, according to The Cleveland Plain-Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

Footballguys view: Pryor wants to stay with the Browns, but the team hasn't been able to get close to his asking price. He'll enter the market at the right time, coming off a career-high 77 catches for 1,007 receiving yards.

  Browns | Cleveland impressed with Myles Garrett    Sun Mar 5, 04:22 PM

The Cleveland Browns were blown away by Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett's performance in his interview and his workout at the NFL Scouting Combine, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Garrett should be the no.1 pick in the 2017 NFL draft, and the Browns should stay with the pick and select the disruptive pass rusher. They're nowhere near competing at a high level, but adding a cornerstone player like Garrett would certainly put them on the right track.

Impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Browns) will reportedly test the free-agent market after extension talks with the Cleveland Browns stalled in recent days.

Footballguys view: Wow. Things change quickly around here. Pryor wants to stay with the Browns, and the Browns want to keep him....but they can't get close on a price at this time. It could go back the other way quickly too, and they could come together before Pryor hits the open market next week. Stay tuned.

  Browns | Mitch Trubisky of interest to Browns    Thu Mar 2, 05:15 PM

North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky is being strongly considered by the Cleveland Browns with their No. 1 overall pick, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Trubinsky is the top quarterback for many analysts, so it comes as no surprise the Browns are looking at him. That said, there is no slam-dunk quarterback in this draft and the Browns have so many holes, they could pass on a quarterback in the first altogether. Trubinsky has a good arm and the right size, but worked mostly out of the shotgun and could be inconsistent as well, especially when facing blitzing defenses.

  Browns | Cleveland wants another quarterback    Thu Mar 2, 03:30 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III and company may have more competition in 2017. Head coach Hue Jackson said the Browns will aggressively pursue a quarterback this offseason, but added that they'll be fine if Griffin and QBs Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan comprise the Browns' quarterbacks.

Footballguys view: The Browns know they don't have a surefire answer under center yet. So this is no shock. That said, there are so many problems to fix on this team, a franchise quarterback might not be the highest priority. They need a line to protect him, receivers to throw too and a defense to keep them in the game. All things equally important at this point in the rebuild.

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor is a priority for the Browns this offseason, but executive vice president Sashi Brown said the team will not panic if he is not on their roster. The Browns are expected to talk with Pryor's representatives at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: Pryor wants to stay with the Browns, and they want him to be on the team. It sounds simple enough to make a deal, so something may come together quickly if the numbers add up.

Footballguys view: The Browns QB situation is like a rorschach test. It can be a lot of different things. Griffin may take part in the offseason program, but he's no lock for the 53-man roster.

Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes said he wants to be drafted as high as possible and believes Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson has a 'great thing going' and has the franchise heading in the right direction.

Footballguys view: Mahomes is an option for the Browns in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft. He's not worth the first pick overall, but we could see him going somewhere in the middle of the round. The Browns own the 12th-overall pick which they got from the Eagles last year.
