Browns pursue Trent Green

Browns General Manager Phil Savage confirmed the Browns are in the hunt for Trent Green. Savage said the first step will be to see if Green is interested in joining the Browns and will then try to work out a contract. Finally compensation will be discussed with Kansas City. The Chiefs are looking for a low round draft pick for Green.

I like this move. Not only does it allow Cleveland to have a REAL veteran presence, but he is a legit QB. Trent Dilfer was a joke to bring to Cleveland. Trent Green has thrown for 4,000+ yards 4 of the past 5 seasons. His main weapon was his tight end Tony Gonzalez and with the talents Kellen Winslow Jr and recievers (which KC never had) on the Browns, Trent Green would be very well off. This would also give Cleveland's young QBs time to really develope and the Browns a couple more years to build a line to protect them.

I like this move.

I like this move too. If you combine this with getting Jamal Lewis, cleveland might actually break out of its typical offensive mediocracy. A couple more things need to happen though. They need to get better blocking up front (the guy they got from cinci should help) and jamal lewis needs to run like the jamal of old.

anything to keep us from drating Quinn or trading up for Russell. Neither is the immediate answer.

i think they should still draft Russel or Quinn, but they won't have to start them this year then. Green will probably retire next season, and then they can take the rigns to the offense.

bringing in green is a long shot at best. i think both frye and anderson would benefit alot. as for drafting a qb is pointless if A: you can't protect him (remember throwing tim couch to the wolves?)
b: you have no veterans to help tudor him.

ps im not sure if either russel or quinn is the guy either. one descent year of college ball doesn't make russel a sure thing, and just because you can throw a ball 4 miles doesn't mean you can break down defensive schemes. nor can cleveland protect him long enough to play the vertical game. as for quinn he has no arm and seems to be more of a eli manning type attitude rather than peyton manning. although he did do a lot with no running game, no defense, and only one descent reciever. he is well coached and familiar with a pro style offense.

Cleveland won't get him- he's already stated he wants to play for Miami and settled on contract terms.
