"I mentioned it earlier. I don’t want this to be a situation where it’s me vs. him or him vs. me. Let’s make it about the Cleveland Browns being a great football team next year. And if that’s the case, I’m all in." - Colt McCoy on the QB competition with Brandon Weedon during OTAs.
If the Vikings stay where they are, it's most likely they go for the long-term protector of second-year QB Christian Ponder instead of a desperately needed cover man like Claiborne. Then, Cleveland. I heard different things over the weekend from people I trust. GM Tom Heckert loves Blackmon and that would be his pick; president Mike Holmgren is still trying to decide with finality if Tannehill is the franchise quarterback worth taking here. The safest pick? Richardson, at a need position, even though receiver is a bigger need.
Your thoughts on Owen Marecic?
I live in KC and I am a sort of "fan" of the Browns (they're my second favorite team), so I don't get to watch them a lot. I liked the pick a lot coming out of the draft but I haven't been able to see him play a lot.
Your thoughts on him? You think he's the fullback of the future, or should we invest in one later?
Changes brewing Heckert and team president Mike Holmgren would rather not burn a No. 4 pick on a wideout. However, enough super-high picks have made a difference in their franchises to make H&H think long and hard about Justin Blackmon. The convincing examples are A.J. Green (No. 4, Bengals, 2011); Calvin Johnson (Lions, No. 2, 2007) and Larry Fitzgerald (No. 3 overall, 2004). There are two million-dollar questions: 1, Is Blackmon as talented as any of these three? 2, Who can get him the ball?
Steelers’ all-time leading wide receiver, Hines Ward, has announced that he will retire after 14 seasons with Pittsburgh.
