Winslow Traded for Undisclosed Draft Picks


This is a breaking story and there isn't much information. Adam Schefter is saying Winslow has been traded to the Buccaneers for draft picks. Early speculation is a 2 and 5 or 3 and 6. Obviously, this post will be updated as news breaks. If any of you have updates, please provide them in the comments. UPDATED: Quote from story from George Kokinis: "The Cleveland Browns thank Kellen for his contributions to this organization over the past five years," Browns general manager George Kokinis said in a statement. "We appreciate his passion for the game and wish him success in Tampa Bay. The draft picks we have obtained through this deal will give us greater flexibility as we look to infuse more talent and create competition and depth on this football team."

Andra Davis Ranked No. 22 Free Agent


Sorry Prisco, but all of those tackles don't warrant this: "22. Andra Davis, LB, Cleveland Browns: At 30, he's not the player he was a few years ago. But he had 90 tackles last season and can still be a productive NFL linebacker." At best, I remember Davis having two or three games I was impressed with during his career with the Browns. He's also ranked ahead of safety Sean Jones on the list.

Aaron Curry's blog


Aaron Curry is writing a blog for about his life leading up to the draft. It's an interesting read, and a way to get to know the possible first round pick of the Browns. His older brother, Christopher Curry, played WR for North Carolina from 2001-04, and he's the son of fomer NFL player Reggie Pinkney (although he was never very close to him, and they don't talk much about his NFL career). From his writings, he certainly seems like a good guy and a hard worker. He redshirted his freshman year and graduated in December, so he's working full-time on football now at API in Arizona to prepare for the draft.

Derrick Ward?


"Appearing on the Jim Rome Show Wednesday, free agent Derrick Ward mentioned the Browns, Texans, and Cardinals as potential landing spots." While his age is of concern, Ward has fewer than 400 carries for his career to date and might not have the wear and tear that other runners his age have. His asking price appears to be modest

Some Players Released


The rest I really don't care about, but I'm kinda upset about Peek.

Bodden to be released

via Football Outsiders "This means that when all is said and done, Matt Millen essentially traded Shaun Rogers for Andre Fluellen." Granted the other party in negotiations was Millen, but has Savage really received the credit due for how this deal turned out over the first year? Of course not.

Man-genius tears down mural


Have we discussed this yet? I think it's idiotic on Mangini's part.

Pontbriand Added To Pro Bowl Roster


Three Pro Bowlers from a 4-12 team? I guess I'm not complaining.

Good things to come?


Word is that Rob Ryan (our new DC) could not run the "aggressive-style" defense he wanted to in Oakland because of meddling owner Al Davis. Here's hoping he can blitz like crazy here in Cleveland.
