  Browns | Jimmy Garoppolo top target for Browns?    Sun Feb 19, 03:17 PM

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo appears to be the top target for Cleveland Browns this offseason, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot. The Browns could consider quarterbacks like Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo and Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Mike Glennon if they are not able to acquire Garoppolo.

Footballguys view: The Brown are looking for a franchise quarterback, and they must think Garoppolo can be that guy. We'll see if they can put a package together that would entice the Patriots into trading away the young quarterback.

  Browns | CLE may not tag Terrelle Pryor     Sat Feb 18, 05:25 PM

The Cleveland Browns do not plan on placing the franchise tag on impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor, according to a source. The team would still like to sign Pryor to a long-term deal.

Footballguys view: Pryor wants to stay, and the Browns want to keep him around. This sounds like it could be pretty simple. At some point this offseason, we expect the two sides to come through with a new long-term contract. Pryor had over 1,000 yards receiving and four touchdowns in 2016. That made him the 20th-ranked WR in standard-scoring leagues last year. Pryor is a WR2/flex play with WR1 upside going forward for fantasy owners.

  Browns | Terrelle Pryor wants to re-sign in Cleveland    Thu Feb 16, 01:10 AM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor has instructed his agents, Drew and Jason Rosenhaus, of his desire to remain in Cleveland. The agents will travel to Cleveland this week to conduct 'strong discussions' about a new contract. Pryor stated his desire to continue the rebuilding process in Cleveland under head coach Hue Jackson.

Footballguys view: Really, it's where he likely would have the most value. Pryor had some very good moments this season and could continue to improve, especially with Corey Coleman attracting more and more attention. Of course, who is throwing the ball will impact both, and we're not clear what the Browns are going to do at that position.

  Browns | Cleveland unlikely to pursue Mike Glennon    Wed Feb 15, 02:43 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Mike Glennon probably will not be a target for the Cleveland Browns this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi.

Footballguys view: Glennon has been waiting for the chance to be a starter in the NFL. He was a third-round pick in 2013 and played in 13 games that year, putting up over 2,600 yards passing with 19 touchdowns and only nine interceptions. The Browns may not be interested, but we're certain plenty of other teams will be.

  Browns | CLE QBs coach likes Tyrod Taylor 'a lot'    Wed Feb 15, 12:37 AM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is liked 'a lot' by new Cleveland Browns quarterbacks coach David Lee, who spent the past two years coaching Taylor in Buffalo. In addition, Lee would 'welcome continuing to work with him.'

Footballguys view: The Browns and the Jets seem to be the two teams most interested in Taylor and he's not yet on the open market. The Bills have a contract option on March 11th, and that will determine Taylor's future with the team. If released, Taylor should have no problem getting a new starting job.

  Browns | Cleveland to talk with Terrelle Pryor    Mon Feb 13, 06:34 PM

The Cleveland Browns are scheduled to talk with the agent for impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor this week.

Footballguys view: All signs point to Cleveland finding a way to keep Pryor around. With the most cap space in the league ($106 million), the Browns shouldn't have any problem affording a fair contract for Pryor. He wants to remain in Cleveland, and the team could put the franchise tag on him if they don't get a long-term deal worked out.

  Browns | Myles Garrett clears the air    Sun Feb 12, 07:30 PM

Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett said the video he made asking the Dallas Cowboys to trade up to select him with the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft was a joke, and he added that he would have 'no problem' playing for the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Garrett may have been joking, but there's likely some truth to what he was saying. The Cowboys could use a devastating pass rusher like Garrett, but they're sitting all the way back in the first round with the 28th overall pick. Garrett is the best player in this draft class, and he's virtually a lock to be the first selection. That's a pick the Browns currently own.

  Browns | Josh McCown endorses Jimmy Garoppolo     Fri Feb 10, 10:53 PM

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo would provide a 'bright' future at the quarterback spot for the Cleveland Browns, according to free-agent QB Josh McCown. 'I've seen him on tape because we had a common opponent in Miami,'' McCown said. 'He made some high level throws and did some things that would get you excited about his ability to maybe carry a franchise.'

Footballguys view: The Browns are rumored to be making a run at Garoppolo this offseason. They have plenty of draft picks - and premium selections to boot. New England seems open to trading away the young backup so long as the price is right.

  Browns | Tyrod Taylor may be option for Browns    Wed Feb 8, 03:48 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor may be an option for the Cleveland Browns this offseason if Taylor becomes available and the Browns are unable to acquire New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Quarterbacks coach David Lee worked with Taylor over the last two seasons when he was part of the Bills coaching staff.

Footballguys view: There's no guarantee that Taylor stays with the Bills. In fact, many expected Taylor to be released at some point this offseason. That was before the Bills hired Rick Dennison as their offensive coordinator. Dennison worked with Taylor when the two were with the Ravens in 2014 under then offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. If Taylor is available, then the Browns should take a look.

  Browns | Robert Griffin's future uncertain    Wed Feb 8, 02:27 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is scheduled to receive a $750,000 bonus on March 11, but the Browns may consider releasing him before that date if they do not think he is in their plans.

Footballguys view: The Browns want to make a move for Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason. Griffin should not be in their long-term plans. Griffin is scheduled to make $6 million in 2017, which would be too much for a backup quarterback of his caliber.

  Browns | Tramon Williams released    Tue Feb 7, 06:12 PM

Cleveland Browns CB Tramon Williams was released Tuesday, Feb. 7.

Footballguys view: Williams will turn 34 in March, and he failed to impress as a corner with the Browns. We could see him move to safety if he wants to keep playing. The Browns did move him to that spot for a bit in 2016.

  Browns | Josh McCown no longer a Brown    Tue Feb 7, 05:51 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is being released Tuesday, Feb. 7, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Browns are going to move in a different direction (again) in the upcoming season. They may add a quarterback at some point in the 2017 NFL draft, and they'll continue to give Cody Kessler an opportunity to be the starter. McCown made it through five games in 2016, finishing with 1,100 yards passing, six touchdowns and six interceptions. He hopes to keep playing, but earlier reports indicate that Hue Jackson could offer him a job on the Browns staff.

  Browns | Jimmy Garoppolo on wish list    Mon Feb 6, 03:33 AM

The Cleveland Browns may be interested in New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo if the price is right.

Footballguys view: The Browns have the #33 pick, which is very strategic at the top of the second round, and they still have two first round picks, so they can add Garoppolo without forgoing a first-round pick and still give the Patriots something very valuable. Hue Jackson generally gets the best out of his quarterbacks, so it could be a good marriage of team and player.

  Browns | Jeff Garcia interviews with CLE    Wed Feb 1, 10:57 AM

Former QB Jeff Garcia interviewed with the Cleveland Browns recently for their quarterbacks coach opening.

  Browns | Joe Thomas talks No. 1 pick    Thu Jan 26, 09:31 PM

Cleveland Browns OT Joe Thomas said he thinks the team should use the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft to address the defensive side of the ball. 'I think you need to get a pass rusher,' said Thomas. 'I think you've got to be careful reaching for a quarterback at No. 1 because if they fail, they don't help your team at all.'

Footballguys view: There isn't any franchise QB in this draft, so the Browns should look elsewhere. Most early mock drafts have Myles Garrett (DE, Texas A&M) going off the board with the no.1 overall pick.

  Browns | Terrelle Pryor may receive franchise tag    Mon Jan 23, 06:57 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor likely will receive the franchise tag this offseason after the Browns were able to sign LB Jamie Collins to a contract extension.

Footballguys view: The Browns don't have to do that, but they will if they can't come to a long-term agreement with Pryor. Even with Collins signed to a deal that makes him the highest-paid ILB in the NFL, the Browns still have plenty of cap space. Pryor wants to stay, and the Browns would be wise to keep him. That sounds like they can come together on a price.

  Browns | Jamie Collins signs extension    Mon Jan 23, 06:05 PM

Cleveland Browns LB Jamie Collins signed a four-year contract extension with the Browns Monday, Jan. 23, worth $50 million. The deal includes $26 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: This contract has been in the works for quite some time. In the last year of his rookie deal, Collins was traded mid-season from the Patriots to the Browns. With over $100 million in cap space, the Browns had the room to pay him a price Collins wanted. This total makes him the 4th-highest paid linebacker in the NFL.

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns LB Jamie Collins is close to agreeing to a four-year contract Monday, Jan. 23.

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has reached a 'stalemate' with the team regarding talks for a contract extension. The two sides were previously in 'heavy talks' to get a deal done.

Footballguys view: There's no need for the Browns to break out a blank check for Crowell as they have a restricted free agent tender to put on him. We'll see if the two sides can come together on a new deal.

  Browns | Browns may target Tyrod Taylor    Tue Jan 17, 11:59 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could draw interest from the Cleveland Browns if they cut QB Robert Griffin III, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon.

Footballguys view: Even though Griffin is under contract with the Browns in 2017, we don't think he stays with the team. He has a cap hit of $9.2 million, and the Browns can save $7.5 million by releasing RGIII. Taylor would provide the team with a strong-armed playmaker, and his beautiful deep passes would look great with WRs Terrelle Pryor and Corey Coleman on the other end.

  Browns | Tyrod Taylor a fit in Cleveland?    Thu Jan 5, 10:14 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could draw interest from the Cleveland Browns if he hits the free agent market, according to beat writer Pat McManamon, because he is good fit for head coach Hue Jackson's run-first offense.

Footballguys view: The Bills have to decide what to do with Taylor as they owe him $12 million (up from just $2.5) if they hold onto him. They don't seem sure of committing and with his surgery, they may decide to delay as long as possible. Cleveland knows they don't have a long term fix on their team and will kick over every rock in creation to find it.

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Boyce, TE J.P. Holtz, OL Zach Sterup, DL Trevon Coley, LB James Burgess, DB Justin Currie, DB Darius Hillary and DB Trae Elston were signed to reserve/future contracts Monday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick for the Patriots in 2013, Boyce hasn't played a snap since 2014 and has bounced around to a few different teams. The Browns are jam-packed at wide receiver, but in super deep dynasty leagues we'll stubbornly keep an eye on Boyce to see if he can ever do anything of note.

  Browns | Robert Griffin III decent in finale    Sun Jan 1, 05:52 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III threw for 232 yards and had two touchdowns and an interception in a 27-24 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Griffin has a six million dollar price tag next year, but the Browns don't have a better plan except maybe Cody Kessler at quarterback next year. The #1 pick will give them their choice of the 2017 draft quarterbacks, but the early outlook is that there might not be a passer worth the pick.

Footballguys view: Crowell finished only 48 yards short of 1000 while averaging over 4.7 yards per carry on less than 200 carries on the worst team in the league, which is astounding. He'll return as the starter next year before entering free agency as a 25-year-old in 2018.
