That wld be Cleveland. Willing to take on Brock's salary. Second dumbest team? Texans willing to take on Romo's salary. LOL

Ok the Romo issue is dead. We can now focus on our Lines and QB competition/development in camp.


CLE isn't doing it because they want Os.

They have 100m to spend and must spend a bunch of that or it goes to the NFL (there's a min floor to the cap for a 4-year period IIRC). So they turned $ they couldn't attract FA to use it all and got a 2nd found pick in a loaded draft.

Plus if they play Os and go 2-14 they get 1.1 or 1.2 and get a true elite QB prospect in Sam Darnold or the Rosen kid. They aren't going anywhere this year or next but long term if they embrace the tank it could have then completely turned around by 2019. And 2018 with a marquee QB. At rookie prices.

CLE's FO was brilliant - if they didn't hit the floor the $ goes back to the NFL. This was BRILLIANT.

It also saved Elway from making a huge mistake. So we should put the Browns FO in our Christmas Card list.

The Browns again, save our A$$. God, I have loved the Browns since 1986.

lol at anyone saying CLE isn't anything but brilliant by making this move.

Get to the cap floor, get a free R2 pick. Win-Win.

Also, we thought Osweiler's confidence took a hit when he was pulled in that San Diego game. What about being the first QB that was paired with picks to LEAVE. He must be nose deep in a 1.5L of jack.

Romo posted a video (with Bob Dylan singing "the times they are a-changin'" in background)

The Cowboys have not yet released Romo.

So happy that CLE saved us a season wasted on Romo.

Get him to the Texans already before Elway and his old QB fetish set us back a season.

Texans could be really really good with Romo. Certainly a possibility

Wrong that it saved Elway. Broncos were only going after Romo on the discount route. Basically if there were no where else he really wanted to go and with Denver being his #1 choice then Denver wld be interested becos it wld immediately boost our super bowl chances.
This is why the Texans are doing it. Difference is Texans are dumb enough to pay huge dollars for such a risky investment.
And no, aside from getting a 2nd pick, I dnt applaud Browns. There are better ways to spend 16 million in this market without having to spend it on Brock whether you want him or not.

Until Romo sneezes and throws his backout.

I have never liked Tony nor have I ever seen him as part of that 1st tier. To me he has always been in that Carson Palmer second tier.

I have confidence that Siemian will post better stats and QBR than Romo this season.

A 2nd round pick in this draft is infinitely more helpful to a rebuilder than 1-2, 3 more guys paid 16m who aren't actually worth that long term. Those 2-3 guys are older and the likelihood they help in 2019 when CLE realistically looks to contend is way lower. Remember if they were great assets a bottom 3 team wouldn't be winning the bid for their services. That's a huge reason why bottom 5 teams have so much cap space. CLE JAX TEN were bottom 5 teams 3 and 2 years ago. No one wanted to play there if given a choice. Ten is breaking through but their 2 years of suckage was a big reason that created the cap excess. CLE is still there.

The Browns aren't going to make the playoffs. Even next year unlikely with their talent gap. They will lose any money that doesn't make the floor. But instead they should overpay for FA guys who likely don't even play in 2018 let alone 2019 to make it to the floor? Rather than use money on guys who don't change their 2017 fate they got a top 55 pick in a draft that's loaded 70+ deep. And at min wage for 2017-2020. As a rebuilder that's a dream scenario. But somehow they are dumb? Listen to yourself.

It's not even a debate. The Browns are being hailed for creative thinking. As they should. If you think they are stupid you don't see the problem bottom 5 teams face in meeting the floor and still getting guys that might still be there when they are better. FA rarely does it for those teams. The draft does. Using cap excess they might be losing is brilliant with no hope for contention in 2017-18.

Browns are already trying to trade Osweiler. They are seeking a mid-round pick.

Jeez, this is like flipping houses...

He's more likely getting cut. He's served the Browns' purpose. I wondered if the Browns were going to go full on tank for 1.1 or 1.2 and get the top 2 QB next year. But this is even more fitting lol.

ok


That's a little harsh. In his peak he carried a talent-wise 4-6W team to 8-10 W seasons on his own. But obv I completely agree he was doomed to fail in Den. The injury risk & our need to address OL and run D more, etc etc.

I agree champ that his chances of success are way better in Hou. Better OL better RB and the coaches aren't turning over. Their D is legit even with the loss of Bouye. O'Brien is a jerk but Romo is a pro. And unlike us they literally have no options. So I wish him well in Hou. Unless we have to play him. Laughing
