  Browns | Browns, Isaiah Crowell in 'stalemate'    Fri Jan 20, 03:53 PM

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 | Isaiah Crowell will be RFA    Sat Jan 14, 01:03 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell will be a restricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Crowell should be brought back as the team's top back in 2017. He had career highs in rushing attempts (198), rushing yards (952), receptions (40) and receiving yards (319) in 2016.

  Browns | Terrelle Pryor set to be free agent    Sat Jan 14, 01:03 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Pryor has worked hard in his transition from QB to WR in the NFL...and that work paid off this year. He caught 77 passes for 1,002 yards and four touchdowns in 2016...and he did that while playing the last month with a finger injury.

  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.

  Browns | Cleveland signs eight to reserve/future list    Wed Jan 4, 12:50 AM

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 | Terrelle Pryor to have surgery    Mon Jan 2, 11:14 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) will have surgery on the torn ligament in his finger Wednesday, Jan. 4.

Footballguys view: Pryor was able to play through this finger injury, but surgery was always a certainty once the regular season was done. He had a three-week stretch where he did little to nothing for his fantasy owners. However, Pryor had a big Week 17 and finished off on a high note with seven catches for 94 yards.

  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.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell has fantastic finale    Sun Jan 1, 05:45 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell ran for a career-high 152 yards Sunday, Jan. 1, in a 27-24 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Crowell carried the ball 19 times, with his longest run a 67-yard scamper for no score.

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.

  Browns | Duke Johnson expects to play    Sat Dec 31, 04:16 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (ankle) said he will be able to play in Week 17 even though he is listed as questionable for the game.

Footballguys view: The Browns are going up against a Steelers team with nothing to gain as they're locked into the no.3 seed in the playoffs. That may open up more opportunity, but let's just say we're not rushing to get Browns players -- even desperation flex plays -- into our Week 17 lineups.

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown said he hopes to play in 2017, but he also has an offer from head coach Hue Jackson to serve on his staff.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of Sam Houston State all the way back in 2002, McCown has bounced to several NFL teams during his pro career and even had a stop in the UFL. McCown made it into five games this year, finishing with 1,100 yards passing, six touchdowns and six interceptions.

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, Dec. 29.
