    Miami had no leverage in the Landry trade. Pretty much the whole league knew they couldn't take the cap hit to keep him at the franchise tag price and were going to withdraw it (if they didn't sign a long term more team friendly deal which was unlikely) and release him for nothing, so Cleveland stepped in and offered something knowing they wouldn't likely get him if he went to free agency. Miami liked something better than nothing, and weren't going to get any other offers that were better because teams could wait for Landry to be cut, but Cleveland was able to land a talented player who they wouldn't have had a chance at in free agency for a small pittance of the draft capital they have amassed over the last few years. They also had the cap room to take the hit of the franchise tag price.

    If thatís the case, would that mean John Elway is going after Kirk Cousins?

    That seems to be where he's headed...he traded Talib to free up salary cap space.

    Well the Browns aren't done trading ....again.


    - They traded Danny Shelton (DT) to New England for a 3rd round pick in 2019. They also sent a 5th that season to New England to take Shelton. Since being drafted in the 1st rd of the 2015 draft , Shelton never played up to expectations. This will make the 1st round picks from 2012-2015 all gone off the roster for the Cleveland Browns.

    To me this off-season summed up more of the stupid Cleveland Browns situation at QB. Ok since last year Hue Jackson has wanted AJ McCarron . He coached him with Bengals and wanted McCarron because he can run his system. But here is the typical Browns move , they looked at Tyrod Taylor its claimed because he had started more and actually got a team into the playoffs. Also they used it to try and convince Joe Thomas to keep playing.

    But what is missing is Buffalo backed into the playoffs and had 2 teams lose that helped them. Also the fact a reason Buffalo didn't keep him was that he couldn't throw across the middle of the field well. Its why they didn't make a push to keep him.

    What likely will happen is Taylor will play worse in Cleveland and while the plan is to use him as a bridge QB , what will happen is he'll end up being benched halfway into the season. Then the rookie QB they had a lot invested in will be thrown in to sink or swim.

    That could be interesting. Butler doesn't have the ceiling of a #1 corner (he lacks the size to handle true #1 receivers) but has the potential to be perhaps the best #2 corner in the league. If he and Sherman end up in the same place then that secondary instantly becomes a credible threat even if the safeties are scrubs.

    While it’s stupid easy to bash the Browns, it takes two to tango when it comes to trades. Were the Bengals ever interested in trading McCarron, or were they intent on keeping him? If it’s the latter, then what was Cleveland to do?

    Wasn't Mccarron an unrestricted free agent though? I thought he won his grievance with the Bengals and was awarded free agency.

    McCarron is a free agent and as posted a week or two ago did win his grievance with the Bengals.

    We got Richard Sherman, and he for whatever reason decided to sign a very team friendly/incentive based deal. Thanks big perm! I mean big Sherm.

    Not when you consider it's the Browns.

    It's going down all over the league.

    Me and a coworker were talking about the salary cap and how the Colts have the third most to spend and he said that Miami was near the top of being over. I couldn't figure out how the sorry assed Dolphins are over the cap that bad. Other than Suh, who was overpaid for a goon anydamnway, I can't think of who else is getting paid like that. Wake? They let Ajai go, Cutler wasn't breaking the bank for that one year. Crazy.
    Beefing up the old home security, huh?
    You bet yer ass.
