Free Agency Just Around the Corner

A moment of silence for a former Browns players who passed away.

John Sandusky, 80, a lineman who played on three NFL championship teams with the Browns, died Sunday of complications from internal bleeding at Coral Springs, Fla., Medical Center.

Sandusky, a second-round draft pick out of Villanova, was with the Browns from 1950 to '55, playing both the offensive and defensive lines as the team won titles in 1950, 1954 and 1955.

The Browns were in the NFL Championship Game all six years he was with them. He finished his seven-season pro career with Green Bay in 1956.

"He was a smart player," said Hall of Famer Dante Lavelli, his teammate on the Browns. "He prided himself on his blocking and had a good temperament."

Now, in other news, free agency begins in just two hours! Finally, the moment we've all been waiting for is here. The Browns will have a lot of money to spend, and hopefully we'll be able to sign the impact-type players that general manager Phil Savage has been preaching about. I have a feeling we could address the wide receiver position early, with either David Givens or Joe Jurevicius.

Whatever happens, all signings related to the Browns will be posted right here on Dawgs By Nature!
