    Cleveland Browns

    Derek Anderson, the 24-year-old Cleveland quarterback who stepped in as a starter after the first game and led the Browns to a 10-6 record last season, was tendered a one-year offer for $2.5 million Thursday.
    But Browns general manager Phil Savage said that if another team makes the restricted free agent a better offer, Cleveland is unlikely to match it.
    Cleveland also has made a $20 million, three-year offer with $10 million guaranteed to Anderson. But having traded away this year’s first-round pick to take Brady Quinn in last year’s draft, the Browns apparently feel Quinn remains their quarterback of the future.
    If Anderson does move, Cleveland would get first- and third-round choices for him.
    Not a bad offer sent to Anderson. If I was Cleveland, I wouldn't be to hesitant to consider matching any offer given to Anderson, even if Quinn is the "future" of the team. I would have Anderson in there, let Quinn take another year of camp, pre-season, practices, etc. Take it from there. I wouldn't let Anderson walk, then put everything on Quinn's shoulders like that.

    Per Profootballtalk.com the Browns signed Anderson 3yrs. $24million $14mil guaranteed money. Brady Quinn will sit for a while, nice job on the holdout Quinn well played.

    I think it'll depend on how well the team does next year. If they're a possible playoff contender then Anderson will keep starting, but if last year was a fluke and they go back to a 4 or 5 win team, then I wouldn't be surprised to see Quinn get the ball and the Browns look to move Anderson (depending on cap penalties and how his contract is structured), or bench him

    they dealt a second rounder for DT Corey Williams today - makes more sense to go with Anderson for at least another year, plus Quinn's contract isn't that bad.

    Just read this also. I think it was very smart of the Browns to get it done.

    I certainly do agree with this also. If the Browns start to shit the bed again, expect Quinn to take over sooner than later. If Cleveland remains somewhat in playoff contention, Anderson is the man.

    When the Cleveland Browns brain trust had its final meeting before the opening of free agency last month, general manager Phil Savage posed a tantalizing scenario. With Cleveland’s porous defensive line hanging over the franchise like an anvil, would the Browns be willing to sacrifice their second- and third-round picks to fix the problem?
    Savage had already been talking to Detroit about trading draft choices for mercurial talent Shaun Rogers. And he knew it would likely take a second-rounder to acquire Corey Williams from the Green Bay Packers. Already lacking a first-rounder from last season’s trade for Brady Quinn, Savage wondered aloud whether it was worth it, essentially giving away all three rounds of one draft – the NFL’s annual version of the golden ticket.
    Less than a week later, with Rogers and Williams in the fold, Cleveland’s roll of the dice has provided the answer. The Browns went all out to shore up a void on their defensive line, sacrificing the meat of the 2008 draft. And looking back on that meeting on the eve of free agency, Savage has few regrets.
    “It was the most consensus agreement we’ve had since maybe we’ve been here,” Savage said.
    Now that consensus opinion has led to another: After barely missing out on the playoffs last season, Cleveland’s bold moves during the first week of free agency have made the Browns one of the NFL’s most intriguing teams going into next year. Much like New England’s bold strokes last offseason, the Browns used every available avenue to thrust them into Super Bowl contention. With the re-signings of quarterback Derek Anderson and running back Jamal Lewis and the trade and free agency acquisitions of wideout Donte’ Stallworth, Rogers and Williams, Cleveland has raised the stakes in a talent-packed AFC.
    And all it took was a few draft picks and the willingness to gamble.
    Cleveland - playoff bound. I can agree with that. Cleveland - Super Bowl contention, not quite there yet.

    He is awesome as it is. If he can get to yet another level. He could be unstoppable.

    A little tidbit to think about...

    Quote Originally Posted by SI.com

Don't underestimate the loss of him in the running game. He is one of the few guys willing to go inside and dig out linebackers and safeties. His loss would impact Jamal Lewis' production."
    Most of us only really focus on the finer points, such as how many yards or TDs a player will get and completely forget the small things like blocking. Jurevicius is a great blocking receiver. Something to think about when you try to plan out Jamal's season.

    More on Jurevicius.

    Quote Originally Posted by ESPN.com

"It's been pretty frustrating for everybody because this started as an innocent knee scope back in January, and it's morphed itself into multiple procedures," Savage said. "So it's a bit up in the air right now ... He's going to be looked at again obviously next week before we get started and probably will start on that PUP list."
    Well....its going to be a tough season for Jurevicius. Perhaps, he can give you a playoff boost late in the season, but odds are his numbers will be not that great.

    Edwards suffered the cut on his foot when he was running lightly in his socks

    According to a photographer who was shooting the session, Edwards and fellow
    receiver Donte Stallworth were vying for the lead when Stallworth's cleat gashed
    Edwards' right heel.

    Edwards' grimaced in pain on the field while Josh Cribbs wrapped his t-shirt
    around the foot to stop the bleeding. Edwards left the field on a cart.

    Edwards was not at practice Sunday morning, but coach Romeo Crennel said he thought
    he'd be released from the hospital on Sunday. He said Edwards was kept overnight
    for precautionary reasons. Earlier in the practice, Edwards had his ankle looked
    at after landing awkwardly, but returned to work after talking to the trainer.

    Crennel did not give a time-frame for Edwards' return, but one team official said
    it was not believed to be serious. However, he will probably be held out of action
    until the stitches are removed, meaning he could miss the second preseason game
    against the Giants on Aug. 18.
    A lot of people are expecting a lot from Edwards this year, let's keep an eye out... Positive note is the coaching staff/training staff do not think this is going to be a serious issue.

    Anderson will be out of week 3 of the pre-season and Quinn will get the start. At this point, there is no reason to believe Anderson misses time in the regular season, but if Quinn goes out of his mind, the Quinn era could start sooner than later.

    they say it's only a mild concussion, so i don't think there is anything to worry about.

    MRI RESULTS COMING FOR CRIBBS
    Posted by Mike Florio on August 19, 2008, 5:30 p.m.
    from PFT

    Lost in the hoopla regarding the concussion suffered by Browns quarterback Derek Anderson during Monday night’s game in the Meadowlands is the fact that Cleveland’s answer to Devin Hester injured an ankle.

    Joshua Cribbs has a sprained ankle, and we’re told that the team and the player are still awaiting the results of an MRI.

    The loss of Cribbs for any significant period of time would be a huge blow to the Browns.

    In this same regard, we heard receiver Braylon Edwards talk about his sock-feet slice-and-dice routine on Sirius NFL Radio earlier in the day. Though he’s widely expected to return from the freakish foot injury in time to participate in the regular-season opener, Edwards stopped short of declaring that he’ll definitely be ready.

    “Hopefully” was as far as he would go.

    No surprise here on Jurevicius. This is leaving Cleveland thin in receiving. Stallworth. Braylon Edwards (foot injury), Kasper (IR), Cribbs (ankle). We fall to guys like Syndric Steptoe.

    Kellen Winslow's Out With...Swollen Testicles?


    After a summer filled with horrifying testicular injuries in hockey and baseball, it appears Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow is also having his own nut trouble and will possibly sit out Monday Night's game against the New York Giants. Pro Football Talk, quoting a league source, says that Winslow was admitted to the Cleveland Clinic "because his balls swelled to the size of grapefruits."
    It was first reported as an "undisclosed illness" and head coach Romeo Crennell seemed to think it wasn't too serious, saying "his arms and legs aren't falling off or anything like that." Notice there's no mention of the peach basket, though, which is could be in peril.
    Hopefully he just slept on them the wrong way or is having some sort of odd physical reaction to new laundry detergent or something because nobody should have to be put through such torture and humiliation.
    We'll update as soon as there is further clarification..

    Dobell and Ryan make up his staff.
