    Surprised this hasn't broken anywhere else except for the Browns' website and KFFL.

    Nice, pick up a conditional pick (which will end up being a late rounder since Tucker will most likely play all the team's games) for a guy who might not have even made the team.

    Hallen had issues when he was with the Pats also. He left the Pats camp ('04 I think).

    2004 indeed.

    So the Browns lost Bentley for the season, then they signed Todd Washington who retired shortly thereafter, now Hallen is having his doubts.

    Hope Tucker is not the next victim.

    Guess we'll never get a clear answer to the Tucker/Mruczkowski saga. We could perhaps get a feel if we knew which one Cleveland initially bid for...

    Hey...and have the Pats seen their customary OL retirement the past two training camps? It turns out it was Romeo's personal curse!

    His chances just improved, yes. Still far from a lock.

    (Then again, his chances took a hit when Koppen came back. They'll take another once Kaczur returns).

    The Pats will likely only carry two backup interior linemen, and Hoch and Mruc look to be the clear frontrunners for those.

    As one who has had very very big hopes for Tucker ... and wondered plaintively in these pages
    whether anyone had seen him do ANYTHING at camp ...
    i can live happily with Mruc.

    Mruc is an Andruzzi ... waiting to happen.

    ps, patchick - yes, Romeo's personal curse ... brilliant !

    The Browns' center position is henceforth dubbed "The Black Hole."

    Didn't Hallen retire on us and then renege and go play with the Vikings?

    No Jersey Selected


    I thought that Hallen was one of the last cuts before the start of the '04 season. Was Mruc also cut, or did he make the 53?
    If anyone can remember what exactly happened two years ago, please let us know.
    Now Tucker is gone, helping Mruc's chances, again.
    I would be very surprised if the Browns' 1st choice was Mruc.
    I would be very disappointed if the pats' 1st choice to trade was Tucker.
