Leading into the season I would of happily let them go at the end of this season.

They have both played better than I thought they would and with such a young team there experience is very important.

I would give both of them 3 year front loaded contracts that after a couple of years they can be cut for a small cap hit.

Why create more needs than we allready have?

This way we can still go after a CB and a TE if one is there in FA or the draft that we want but we don't have to force it which is when you make mistakes.

Couldn't agree more.

Brown is, and has been, our 2nd best CB. Until we find someone better and get a few games under their belt, I don't see how we don't keep him.

Watson too has been solid.

Browns play today was the product of a slow sloppy field. Kinda like how Andra Davies looked all world in the Buffalo snow bowl game.

Brown needs to retire or be cut.

With the new salary cap agreement, we'll have to spend money. Unless we go out there and really sign some free agents, I think we'll re-sign most of our guys, even the ones some of us might not want to keep all that much (Cribbs, Brown, Watson).

Brown played great today, but, it was vs. the Raiders and the bad thing about him is that vs. speedier receivers, he just gets beat too many times. I think he is still a solid player.....but he will just be a year older next year Confused

Watson I'm kind of iffy about because honestly I'd love for Cameron to get more time as he seems to be a reliable TE and it would suck for us to let him walk due to not getting enough snaps or keeping older players....

I also wouldn't mind letting Smith go.....I understand he is doing his part decently, but, I wouldn't mind giving Smelly a go...

I want to see Brown play nickel corner next year or free safety, I think he will regres further and we will ned a replacement for him, definetly worth having around.

If I were a betting man, I would bet that Banner lets both guys walk in the offseason. That's just me guessing on his past history with players this age.

I agree that I'm not thrilled by about creating any more holes, but I can't see Banner re-signing either guy.

Unfortunately, I'm thinking along the same lines.

TE doesn't have the depth that CB has. especially now that Smith is the FB. It's one of the reasons Watson stays IMO and Brown goes. Also worth mentioning is Watson is the best blocking TE the Browns have also

everyone always trashes Brown but he is consistently good. One of the best decisions we've made on a trade since the return in 99 and I'd LOVE to see him resigned. everyone was getting beat yesterday including Haden and Brown pretty much saved the day.

I disagree with Watson, but Brown is still serviceable.

Watson is still pretty good.

If we can get him cheap, I see no reason not to.

I mean we have Cameron who is still learning, and worthless/FB Alex Smith.

I like having Watson in there still

go back to the Cowboys game and look at all calls he had against the Browns because he is old and slow.
