It is now official, he signed with Romeo in Cleveland.
This could change around the whole top of the NFL Draft a lot.
good for romeo, i hope he produces for romeo
Stay and take CJ or trade down and take Quinn is my guess. It would seem like a couple of obvious choices.
I don't see how there is any appeal to play for the Browns...unless they offered him a lot of dough.
Phil and Romeo will have people thinking in Cleveland about which direction they will go in the draft.
Maybe. Or they could release Droughns and go with a Peterson/Lewis combo. The one-two punch is trendy at the moment and Peterson/Lewis is as good as any other duo in the league.
if romeo is fired i hope we bring him back
and i could def see it happening for a couple yrs
he holds Brown records doesnt he?
lol Probably does as an opponent. Didn't he run for like 500 yards in one season not too long ago? A whooping 2 games worth.
:rocker: Good for Romeo! I've always felt badly that he's had such a miserable record and I know some Cleveland fans were blaming him for it. I'm also glad for Willie-Jamaal will add some spark and bring the fans in.
Not really because it is only a one year deal.
The important ramification of this signing is that the Ravens will probably end up with McGahee now. Lewis or not, the Browns are still one of the worst teams in football. McGahee will make the Ravens better and would be a nice upgrade.
Does anyone else think Romeo looks like an older version of Booger McFarland?
People have been saying that the Browns would take QUinn and I have to laugh. The Browns have Charlie Frye as their starter. That is who they decided upon 2 years ago. They aren't going to give up on him yet.
I still say that they go with Gaines Adams.
Charlie Frye? He has been flat out terrible. I don't think the job is a lock to be his by a long shot.
They need a real QB - word is they're quietly looking around and offering Frye around behind the scenes. Lewis has averaged 3.5 combined the last two years, it's hard to imagine him turning it around with a poor OL and weak QB.

How do you figure that Frye has been terrible? The Browns offensive line was bad last year because of Bentley going down. Yet, Frye still completed over 64% of his passes. The Browns didn't have a running game to speak of.
Now, I know that Frye had 17 ints and only 10 TDs, but what does he have beyond Braylon Edwards? Kellen Winslow? That kid's been a bust. Joe Jurevicius didn't exactly light things up.
So, explain how Frye has been terrible?
I think that the Browns O-line will be better. They added an extremely good player in Steinbach. The question will be what happenes at center. They need to get someone there to help improve that situation.
Improve their O-line and Frye will et better.
The Browns consistently have one of the worst offenses in the league.
17 ints to 10 TDs? I'd call that terrible.
Yes, look at things in a vacuum. IGNORE the rest of the problems on offense and blame EVERYTHING on a 2nd year player.
Now, is that to say that Frye is FREE of blame? Nope. But there are bigger issues on the Browns than at QB and they'd be STUPID to draft Quinn when they have problems in their defense.
I'm not sure it changes anything other than buying a year for a rookie to get established. If they got him for a cap-friendly deal, it's a good move. He's no longer a primary back, but will do well in a platoon situation.
When an offense is that bad a good deal of blame has to fall on the QB. And when you watch him play he just doesn't look good.
I'm not saying the Browns will draft Quinn, just that they certainly can't be happy with Frye's play to this point.
Well, we'll see. They have the same Center, the same overpriced LT, the same RG, the same RT - if he gets back healthy. And I just don't think Frye is very good. Whether the talk I've heard is true, I don't know, but there is definite talk they're quietly looking around.
Or, its got a very bad O-line, like the Browns did last year.
Actually, when I watched Frye play, he looked like a QB rushed because he had little faith in his O-line to keep the defense off him.
I don't know, it was Frye's 1st full year as a starter. Not sure how they could be disappointed unless their expectations were utterly unrealistic.
This is from a pay site so I'll just paste a small piece :
"Publicly, the Browns have shown nothing but support for homegrown quarterback Charlie Frye, although even that once rock-solid support has wobbled in recent months.
Privately, though, itâ€™s turning into an entirely different ballgame.
At least, thatâ€™s the talk floating around various league circles.
Multiple sources from around the leagueâ€”from agents to scouts to members of various front officesâ€”have told The OBR that the Browns, in not so many words, have been quietly shopping Frye throughout this offseason. While one front office source wouldnâ€™t go so far as to say that Frye was being actively shopped, he did say that at the very least, â€śitâ€™s been made clear that Frye is available and can be had.â€ť"
What is the deal with Reuben Droughns? I always thought he was a pretty good running back. Is he washed up? hurt?
I think he got a DUI last summer and this past season wasn't his best. He ran for 738 yards with a paltry 3.4 YPC average, granted he missed a couple of games due to injury.
I'm not so sure that this is all that great of a move.
I dont' think running back was their problem. Reuben Droughns is a quality back. He just didn't have the help around him. I can't imagine that Jamal Lewis will fare any better than Droughns.
