Cleveland Browns:

NFL:

  • "Offseason road maps for all teams" (SI) - This is a really good column that takes a look at all 32 teams and their needs that they should address in the offseason. Spoiler alert: Jeff Diamond lists the Browns' needs as QB, RB, and WR. Personally, I'd cross off RB by resigning Hillis (as unlikely as that seems now), then try to fill a need at LB or DE.
  • "Ranking the NFL’s announce teams" (SI) - This is another really good one at SI.com. I've expressed my opinion about most announcing crews in the past. In a nutshell, I'm not really fond of most of them. That said, it's fun to see them all ranked in order like this. It's a shame they didn't create one more ranking below "practice squad" just for Jim Mora Jr.
  • "Offseason promises to be wild" (ESPN) - Yeah, this is more about the offseason. But, this one also pertains to the Browns. John Clayton received a question about the Browns in his mailbag. You'd never guess the topic. That is, unless you'd guess RG3 and the prospect of trading up. Clayton, too, doesn't think RG3 will fall to No. 4.
  • "Steelers cut Bryant McFadden, Arnaz Battle" (PFT) - This doesn't come as much of a surprise. The move will save the Steelers "roughly $3.5 million" against the cap but they still have a ways to go.
