NFL News: Browns “considered” Seneca Wallace, Hardesty could start

Pat Shurmur had his chat with reporters on Thursday and discussed the decision to bring in quarterback Josh Johnson. It was top of my mind yesterday as I wondered if the Browns had talked to Seneca Wallace. He played for the Browns last year and was cut at the end of training camp this year,

Eskin: A.J. Feeley could be headed to the Browns

Things might get more and more interesting with regard to QBs in Cleveland if Howard Eskin out of Philly is correct. Eskin reports that A.J.

C.J. Miles Jazz

As I’ve been doing for years, The Boots are my way to assign Boot Up or Boot Downs to various items in the sports world. As a reminder, I got the nickname “Boot” from my older brothers when I was young, and thus, I continue to use this segment as my personal sports writing payback.

Colt McCoy Should Be Dissatisfied but Not Surprised

Seneca Wallace Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy

Colt McCoy should be dissatisfied. That’s the nature of being a quarterback. And if you don’t believe me, just ask Seneca Wallace. If you’re not starting you want to be and more than likely think you should be. You can’t begin to approach the position without a desire to want the ball in your hands.

Browns Still Trying to Avoid Guaranteed 4th Year with Weeden

The Browns got Trent Richardson signed last night and it was a cakewalk compared to the process with Brandon Weeden. Because Richardson was picked as high in the draft as he was, there really wasn’t much choice but to guarantee all four years of his contract. Brandon Weeden on the other hand is 28 years

Pat Shurmur and Secenca Wallace might not be on the same page

With regard to the role of “third quarterback” for the Cleveland Browns, it appears that there is a slight misunderstanding between Browns head coach Pat Shurmur and veteran back-up quarterback Seneca Wallace.

Memo To Seneca Wallace: This is a Team Game

Seneca Wallace Portrait

There were obviously many things that weren’t great about the 2011 Cleveland Browns season. The lack of playmakers on the outside; the myriad of Peyton Hillis fiascos; the injury bug; the horrific at times special teams play.
