Is it possible for Kelvin Benjamin to play TE? Joker TE?

Chris Johnson?

If we sign Johnson & get 1 of those big time receivers at 18 our offense will already be 10 times better than last year with a year under Geno's belt (just saying)

i'm hearing Chris Johnson will be released today, he has the same last name as our owner..

It baffles me why this team doesnt get more turnovers. Hopefully they turn that around.

Well I am stoked! I have new glasses and I can see things much more clearly now!

The Jets win the Cap wars this off-season!! YAY to the ID!

@a57se  I wouldn't complain with that.  On drafting a couple more O-Line, I'm okay with it if they feel like they are significant improvements over the gaggle of O-Line we drafted last year (aka, I think I'd be okay the Cyril pick at OG).

@twin  sometime today according to his agent.

@WW85  If they did this I would imagine it would be the end of Goodson. Can't see paying two guys with the same function.


Can CJ block? Pick up the blitz? 


I know he's caught a lot of balls, but can he catch?

Chris Johnson is not worth the money, can do better in the draft.

Evans or Lee at 18 would be great.

@Hoz  Yeah, it's all but official at this point.

@levi  That's one of the biggest reasons I want Reed back. Did he wear a shirt about turnovers last year in the locker room? The guy preaches TO's like no one this team has had under Rex. In order to become one of those opportunistic defenses it has to be constantly talked about until its ingrained in the team's DNA.

Actually.... I think the Browns have..

@Brendan @Hoz thinking hard about it, i would love to have him.

@Brendan Im all for Reed coming back but they need to incorporate a youngin at the FS position too, be it Bush, Jarret or a rookie. Oh and whoever it is should grow a gnarly beard as well.

@Marvel @a57se 

The Browns cap is at $157 million because of the carryover from last season. They do have slightly more room than us but they are also spending a lot more money right now.

@Pat d  That's ridiculous Pat.


You have no idea the amount of work that goes into what they do and their database goes beyond anything that's ever been seen before outside of an NFL team premises.


Their grades, rankings and numbers can be misinterpreted and sometimes need context, but this is a professional, extremely well-run business with some of the brightest NFL minds around spearheading it.


They're no joke.

I thought john Schneider trader for Marshawn lynch......

@WW85 Well, I would be very interested to see what CJ's yards before contact # is and how that compares to the rest of the league. He didn't seem to have much room last year. 


He might be getting old, so cutting his reps down, splitting them with Ivory and getting him more touches in space might make him a much more efficient player. 


I don't want him as a starter, just a split-touches scenario. 

levi

@WW85 @Brendan  whether his body has begun to break down or not is a legitimate concern.

@Brendan He's ranks near the bottom on PFF in most categories. But maybe there's a lot more to him

Brendan

@WW85 He's a near-perfect complement to Ivory?

@levi I assume Bush's beard won't start growing in until Reed retires. Then they'll hug, a blinding light will shine and then Bush will be wearing Reed's beard. And thus continues the legacy of the Rex Ryan Safety Beard.

@a57se @Marvel  Are they?


March 24, 2014 Agreed to terms with OL Paul McQuistan.

March 18, 2014 Signed WR Andrew Hawkins to a four-year contract.

March 18, 2014 Agreed to terms with RB Ben Tate.

March 13, 2014 Signed TE Jim Dray.

March 6, 2014 Agreed to terms with K Billy Cundiff.

March 5, 2014 Released WRs Davone Bess and Brian Tyms and LB Paul Hazel.

March 3, 2014 Designated C Alex Mack as the transition player for 2014.


Let's see, they signed a terrible OL, an underwhelming WR, an OK RB, a bad TE, and a kicker.  They did sign Whitner and Dansby, who are good, for some reason those aren't listed on their official transactions list.


In any case, that's two good signings and a whole lot of meh.
