Amidst drop after drop, poor routes, and lack of separation, it's easy to see why the Browns are absolutely the most boring thing to watch. Not to mention letting Ray Rice run all over us as if he was able to just stand on an airport conveyor belt. Currently, (before Monday Night game between San Diego and Jacksonville) we are tied for the fifth pick in the draft. We would LOVE to get Blackmon but with the teams tied or worse than the Browns record wise, the Panthers, Dolphins, Redskins, Vikings, Jaguars, Rams AND Buccaneers are all teams who could possibly take Blackmon in front of us. Here's my solution.
We trade for Desean Jackson.
Before you freak out, YES he is a "Diva" but we pay him, he shuts up and produces. Combine him with a Nick Toon or Mohamed Sanu, and Little, we got a quick, easy and most likely a lasting fix. Take Trent Richardson with our first pick, get Jackson with our worsening Falcons pick(Yes they lost Sunday but are still 7-5,) we have a brand new team.
Do I know if the Eagles are willing? No but as they get worse, and as they don't pay Jackson the likelihood of the Eagles going in different directions increase. I really think they don't want to pay him and we can afford to(I think) and we need receivers who can get open.
Also note that if we DO take Blackmon, this ALL goes out the window. Again, IF he's even available.
