bulldog, thanks for posting this. We'll let it bounce around for a few days, and when it falls too far down the page, I'll sticky it. It's nice to have for a reference. If it ends up being a big discussion thread, that's cool too.

One thing I'd like to add that we didn't have last year is a chronological list of all the Browns' moves. I'll try to get that started, and as we make more moves (cuts, signings, tags, trades, whatever), it will be added to the overall list.

DO't we get a pick from the eagles for trading that UDFA Safety?

Oh and any idea when compensatory picks will be awarded?

Isn't that a direct contradiction to what our owner said a few weeks ago when he said we will not be players in FA this year?

We should, but until there is an official list, I was gonna leave it off.

Thank you.

Obviously there is more to add. I didn't put any Scouting websites in yet.

And I thought since the regional combine is new, if we could get a list of the players invited to them (or a link) would could put that under the dates.

Honestly this thread is a good reminder of what we have done. The whole FFMD thing will probably confuse me, thinking that one or two of those moves were IRL.

Kinda like the walking dead, reading the books and watching the show sometimes confuses me, like this past episode when I said "where did that baby come from?" The comic book had a different storyline.

Anyway, I felt bad for posting off topic so I tried getting back on topic, which led me back off topic.
