Browns Will Be Releasing Eric Steinbach

Well, this wasn't totally unexpected.

Eric Steinbach will be released by the Cleveland Browns according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. Reports are that Steinbach wanted to re-do his contract, but the Browns and Steinbach were not able to work something out. Of course, Steinbach missed all of last season with an injured back, and was not able to work out yet for the Browns.

The move allows the Browns to recover up to six million dollars of salary cap relief (no idea what penalties that will accelerate), but opens a hole at Left Guard. Granted Steinbach was a question mark at best, but many expected him to be lining up next to Joe Thomas once the season rolled around.

What do the Browns do from here? I have been saying it for a few weeks, Steve Hutchinson formerly of the Minnesota Vikings, is a free agent. He has only visited the Tennessee Titans, and will now be headed to meet with the Seattle Seahawks, but he has not agreed to a contract.

Well, so much for being bored yesterday huh?

Have I ever mentioned that the Steelers suck? No? They do.
