3Q: Browns Angering Fans in Free Agency

  • As usual, some teams spend crazy money in free agency. Dolphins signing Suh was this year’s top prize.
  • Browns have been going after the leftovers.
  • So far, they signed:
    • Josh McCown (QB, 35yo) gets 3 years, $14M – from Tampa
    • Brian Hartline (WR, 28yo) gets 2 years, $6M – from Miami
    • Tramon Williams (CB, 32yo) gets 3 years, $21M – from GB
    • Randy Starks (DT, 31yo) gets 2 years, $8M – from Miami
    • Thad Lewis (QB, 27yo, former Brown) – from Buffalo
  • They re-signed:
    • DT John Hughes to a 4 year extension
    • WR/ST Marlon Moore
    • OL Ryan Seymour
  • They lost:
    • TE Jordan Cameron (Miami)
    • CB Buster Skrine (NY Jets)
    • DT Jabaal Sheard (New England)
    • QB Brian Hoyer (Houston)
    • DL Ahtyba Rubin (???)

 

 

4Q: Browns Strategy

  • What is their plan at QB? McCown, Lewis, Shaw, Manziel. Gotta believe they will draft a QB too.
  • The guys they’ve signed so far are older than the guys they replaced. 4 starters on defense > 30yo.
