“If LeBron [James] truly decides to change his number, he has to file his intentions in early March with the league office. That is, unless, he plans to join another team next season. […] Does David Stern let him bypass the policy to keep the mystery?” [Stepien Rules]
“The sporting press has always been quick to target pretty-boy Quinn for criticism, so we’re not particularly surprised to see things blowing up a bit here, especially with public distaste for the league’s protection of quarterbacks at at all time high. But it’s hard to imagine that Quinn’s hit was anything more than a frustrated quarterback doing his best in the heat of a bad bad moment to prevent a second interception from being taken to the house on consecutive drives.” [Cleveland Frowns]

Could the Browns once again trade down in the NFL Draft? “It is realistic to think the Browns will be drafting No. 1 overall in April. I do not think they should go after a quarterback with the first pick. I wouldn’t be opposed to drafting a player like Dan LaFevour from Central Michigan with a big upside if he were to fall. The way to handle this draft is to add to the 11 picks the Browns already have and trade back. Trading back would allow the Browns to take a player like Alabama middlelinebacker Rolando McLain, Tennessee safety Eric Berry or USC safety Taylor Mays. It would be foolish to start talking about who they are going to pick in the third round because, at this point, we don’t even know who is coming out. Everyone is just guessing.” [No Logo Needed]
