just thought I'd put this up to see who goes where
Word is Oakland is a probable landing spot for Adrian Peterson

Wow. That was crazy. I guess we don't have to worry about Romo in Denver. Thank goodness Cleveland is run by morons.
That was actually a somewhat smart move by the Browns.
I think that Brock has the ability to turn it around and be a decent starter. If you're a young starter with not a lot of confidence, seems like playing for a coach like BoB would suck; seems like a major douche.

They basically paid $16 million for a second round pick. They are trying to unload O which suggests they see no upside to him.
So, if I read the numbers correctly, they could pay $16 million for a player who's rookie contract will total around 4 million. Probably off in my numbers, but I think get what I am saying. $16 million can get you a lot in FA.
Yeah, but you're missing one key element.
Even though they are overpaying all the FA's, not a lot of FA's want to play for the Cleveland Browns. Or live in Cleveland.
Overspending for a shitload of FA's without a solid core is also reckless. They were never going to use up all that cap space (they still have 63 million, even after that move and overpaying for some guys) so might as well use it on something vs losing it to your opponents so they have free cap space to get better.

Yeah, 14 draft picks last year, 12 draft picks the year before, 8 first round picks in the last 5 years and they still suck as bad as any team in the league.
Man o man.
A lot of poor decision making.
Brandon Weeden in the first round was a disaster, taking the advice of a homeless man to draft Johnny Manziel was a disaster. Bringing him in without a strong locker room and support system was downright stupid.
Giving up the chance to take Julio Jones, for him and an underwhelming Nose Tackle was another disaster.
The biggest problem for the Browns is they've only had a few very small windows of QB success. Passing on Carson Wentz could also turn out to be a disaster for the Browns, and is why I am an advocate of if you see a QB that you like....just fucking take them.
