Cleveland Browns:

  • "Cleveland Browns set at OLB with converted end Jabaal Sheard?" (Plain Dealer) - "The Browns will enter the upcoming NFL Draft with several glaring needs on defense and a 6-2, 255-pound question mark at outside linebacker. Jabaal Sheard has been a productive player in his first two seasons with the franchise, a muscular defensive end who can rush the passer and one who’s improving as a run stopper."
  • "Roll learned skills behind iron curtain" (ClevelandBrowns.com) - "Tensions between the United States and Russia were high in the mid-1980s, but that did not stop Brad Roll, the new strength and conditioning coach for the Browns, from crossing the “Iron Curtain” and honing his craft with well-known coaches and professors in Russia and East Germany."
  • "Tennessee receiver Cordarrelle Patterson could be NFL’s next ‘freak’" (Beacon Journal) - "As recruiting coordinator at the University of Tennessee last season, Darin Hinshaw laughed at what Hutchinson Community College used as its hook for Cordarrelle Patterson."
  • "Daniel Jeremiah Says Tavon Austin 'A Stud', Rare Talent" (92.3 The Fan) - "NFL.com and NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah joined Bull & Fox to talk about Geno Smith’s draft prospects, the Browns’ front office not being enamored with Brandon Weeden, EJ Manuel as his second rated quarterback, the distinct possibility that the Browns will be talked into trading down and gathering more picks, Tavon Austin’s value at wide receiver, Dee Milliner as the top corner, Jarvis Jones’ drop in value, possible middle round quarterbacks that could be available for the Browns and more." - [AUDIO]

NFL:

  • "Surgery likely for Rob Gronkowski" (ESPN) - "New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski "very likely" will require a fourth surgery on his left forearm, this one to remove the plate inserted in the arm in order to ensure an infection has been eradicated, two sources told ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss."
  • "Raiders waive LB Rolando McClain" (AP) - "The Oakland Raiders waived linebacker Rolando McClain on Friday, less than three years after drafting him eighth overall to be the centerpiece of their defense. McClain was mostly a disappointment in Oakland. He struggled during his first two years and then clashed with coach Dennis Allen and his staff last season."
  • "NFL winners, losers: GMs Schneider, Newsome, Dimitroff get it" (CBS Sports) - "We may look back on this time as a golden era of young general managers in the NFL. The trend of first-time GMs not only has grown in recent years, but with so many members of this wave distinguishing themselves, it's not hard to see why."
  • "Report: Matt Leinart, Brady Quinn to visit Seahawks" (NFL.com) - "The Seattle Seahawks might have backed off of Tim Tebow, but they reportedly are bringing in two more quarterbacks with more name recognition than NFL production."
