The Cleveland Browns have released veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby. The 35-year-old will look to join a contender one year after being one of the best ILBs in football.
Successful NFL franchises are built upon the cyclical nature of the athletes on their team. The team drafts new players to be taken under the wing of veteran players in their prime, and the front office supplements the roster with useful but inexpensive players for depth. The prime veteran players are allowed to leave before
Von Miller is an example of how the Cleveland Browns miss on more than just quarterbacks.
There have been more downs than ups over the past 15 seasons. That only makes our favorite players mean that much more.
Former Cleveland Browns good guy D’Qwell Jackson was arrested Tuesday night for assault in the Washington D.C. area. We all know that road rage is real, but is there anything more infuriating than parking lots? Apparently it was infuriating to D’Qwell Jackson. The 31-year-old pizza delivery employee told police he said to Jackson that he
Ihope you’re sitting down: The Cleveland Browns did not make the NFL playoffs this year. A shocker, I know. It looked like they might sneak in for a minute, but a December swoon saw the Browns finish 7-9, which, to be fair, was their best record in seven years. Again, Browns fans could only watch
The Cleveland Browns are one of the teams that Grantland’s Bill Barnwell thinks should dominate free agency. If his plan comes to fruition it will certainly be a one of the most active free agency periods in Cleveland Browns history. Barnwell claims the Browns should re-sign T.J. Ward, while acquiring the services of Knowshon Moreno,
Don’t you go worrying about those supposed holes in the Cleveland Browns linebacking corps: The team has extended a contract tender to inside linebacker Craig Robertson as an exclusive-rights free agent. Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal confirms, through a team spokesman, that Robertson has been tagged with the “exclusive rights” maneuver, one that provides a
The good folks at Dawgs by Nature have been doing the job over there when it comes to the Browns and their available cap space. It’s a difficult task with lots of factors changing constantly, but they’re on top of it. Now that the Browns are deemed to not owe Davone Bess his second year’s
If D’Qwell Jackson is looking for a new NFL team that has more continuity and less dysfunction than the Browns, he might barely be achieving that in Miami. Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel reports that D’Qwell visited with the Dolphins yesterday afternoon after the team re-upped Brent Grimes for four years and $32 million
Even before we can get into what the Cleveland Browns should do with their numerous draft picks, we’ll start to get some clues about their goals this season by what they do with free agency. We’ve learned quite a bit already as the Browns made the decision to cut D’Qwell Jackson last week. The agent
Jim Kanicki (Mike Burgermeister) joined me today to discuss all things Browns. We talked about the Browns decision to release D’Qwell Jackson, the shakeup of the front office, the free agencies of Alex Mack and T.J. Ward, Mike Pettine and lots about the combine. Is the combine meaningful? If so, how meaningful? Check out this
Once upon a time I thought that D’Qwell Jackson was going to be cut by Joe Banner for financial reasons. Now it appears that the financial reasons were good enough for Ray Farmer as well. Mary Kay Cabot reports that the Browns have said goodbye to the team’s long-tenured linebacker and leader after eight seasons
One thing that has been a hallmark for defenses under Mike Pettine has been inside linebacker. When he was with Rex Ryan in Baltimore, that meant Ray Lewis. When he and Ryan went to the Jets, Pettine is reportedly the man who wanted Bart Scott—badly. Also, it wasn’t until the Bills’ third pick last year,
In light of Davone Bess’ strange behavior that Scott so eloquently discussed today, I thought it would be worthwhile to take a hard look at the financial implications of saying goodbye to the receiver. The Browns traded for Bess during the NFL draft of 2013. To get Bess to Cleveland cost the Browns their 4th
On the bus back to Pittsburgh, Jabaal Sheard showed me a text from his agent that said Chud could be fired. I said, ‘No way. No way.’ After the Trent Richardson trade and our quarterback injuries, I thought for sure he’d get a pass. Not one year. Come on. One year? There’s no way. Chud was
Scott Raab couldn’t be finished with the WFNY Podcast for 2013 after what happened over the weekend, so we decided to do one more in 2013. We touched on all of the obvious topics including… Scott Raab talking about the Browns Dumpster fire’s use in the mainstream Joe Banner and the ego that goes with
Good grief. LOSER: Rob Chudzinski. Rob Chudzinski finished the season with a 4-12 record and was fired from the team he grew up rooting for. His dream job turned into a nightmare. WINNER: Rob Chudzinski. Chud gets to sit back for four years and collect millions of dollars. He can choose to be an assistant
“I don’t even like talking about it. I know it’s a business and things change all the time, but as far as I’m concerned I haven’t thought about that one time. I feel good in my position where I am. From what I know, I’m part of the plans, I’ll be here next year.” “Now
Former Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow is running his mouth as his current Jets squad prepares for the Cleveland Browns this weekend. He has a lot of time to talk, probably because he doesn’t really practice anymore given the state of his knees. “Who’s going to guard me over there? Nobody,” Winslow said. “That’s
