NFL Free Agency: The Browns Strike First

The Browns wasted no time in upgrading their offensive line, as free agency FINALLY gets under way.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2364025

The Bently signing is huge, and it makes Jeff Faine either a backup or expendable. And getting Shaffer along with Bently gives the Browns, for the first time since they came back, a lot of depth at the O-Line.

Next on their list is a nose tackle, a defensive end, an outside linebacker and another WR.

Post the takes from your teams as/if they sign free agents.

The Giants signed CB Sam Madison. He will be a big help because the Giants were very weak in the secondary last year.

The Bengals' Duane Clemons is available. They terminated his contract to clear some cap room to find a QB if Carson Palmer isn't healthy, come opening day. My opinion: stupid move, terminating the contract of the best and most recognizable D-lineman the Bengals have.  no

Jeff Faine: another in a long line of Browns' first round busts.

I see the Browns signed Joe Jerevicius as well. Bentley is a good signing, too. They could use all the O-Line help they can -- that line's only a half step above the Texans.

They have the cap space -- it looks like they're going to use it. Maybe they'll improve a little, sooner rather than later.  Wink

I understand that the Dolphins might get Cullpepper. Seems like a decent QB except I recall that he fumbles often due to his small hands. Don't know if Miami would be a location where he could stay focused on the nfl game, and not the other game, if you know what I mean.


Isn't knowledge more than just the acquisition of information? Shouldn't the acquired information be correct?

Their secondary hasn't been the same since Seahorn blew his knee out and lost all his speed.

so, the Arizona Cardinals, of all teams, pick up Edgerrin James, eh? Not a bad pick-up for them.

The Browns continued their spree today by picking up Punter Dave Zastudal from the Ravens, and got nose tackle Ted Washington-all 6'5", 338 pounds of him-from the Raiders.

The Browns stupidly let go of Chris Gardocki, one of the best punters in the game, two years ago, and it's been a trouble spot since. And with Ted Washington, they finally get that space-eater, run-stuffing nose tackle that they've needed to anchor the defensive line.

Now, they need a pass rusher and another linebacker. I'm sure they have a few more move to do before the draft.

Any rumours as to what's going to go down in Indy? Too bad we couldn't keep Edge in a Colts jersey.

New stadium, new running back for the Cardinals. Now they need to fix the offense line or else Edgerrin James might want to check into disability insurance.

That's the problem with him. Oh, and he's not that good.

As compared to when he had a good knee and still wasn't good?

Brees could use a change of scenery and we could use a real quarterback. Hopefull the two wishes can meet at an axis somewhere in the vicinity of Joe Robbie Stadium. Please no Culpepper or that jackass Owens.

Who? Jurevicius? I'm not a Browns fan so he can drop all the balls he wants.

Wow, the Saints spent some $$$ and got a quality QB for once. Hopefully Brees will stay relatively healthy. He is a proven winner....surely, he seems to be a more natural leader that Aaron Brooks was/will ever be.

Anyway, nice job Saints, and welcome back home...home sweet Dome!

MSYTristar- That Brees could be a good QB or he could be a total bust. That torn labrum is potentially harmful. I like the pickup either way though. I think that the Saints will trade down and get a DE in the draft now; I just don't see them picking up a QB in the draft w/ this huge Brees contract now.

Culpepper was a good pickup for the 'Fins IMO. He has a cannon for the arm, and even though he is coming off of a huge knee injury, he is still large and you really don't have to be that mobile to be a QB. Look at Marino, he could hardly walk, and he was arguably the best passer of all time.

Now if Seattle would just pick up Keyshawn Johnson, they'd be in business.

And the Browns keep on spending, and, at least on paper, vastly upgrading the talent on their team.

Welcome, Willie Mcginest!

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2369949

Heard the Browns might also be interested in Julian Peterson. I don't think they have the money left over to sign him, though, with the draft coming up and they have a relatively high pick.

Still, this has been a great week for Browns fans. First time since they came back in '99 that they really took a serious step to upgrade the talent on the team.

Welcome, Willie Mcginest!

McGinest is a clutch player. He'll jump offsides occasionally, take the occasional stupid penalty, and then make a play that wins you the game. At his age (~34), he may not have three $4 Million seasons left in him, so the Browns have likely overpaid for him, but he still has a lot left.

Good luck, Willie, and thanks for everything.
