I was just reading a chat transcript from Bernies Insiders, Lane Adkins says that Douglas and Hartwell are two guys that the Browns chances of signng increases everyday. Here is the transcript:

Quote:
Abitadawg: I know we still need linebackers....what about Hartwell??? with KC taking Bell and Knight and that is where most thought he would go I dont think they ahve the cap to get him in. What our your thoughts?

Lane Adkins: The team is quietly talking with Hartwell and I am hearing he would like to play here. Money talks in most cases and I haven't been able to get any specifics at this time.

Adogbtown: I was wondering why Hartwell hadn't signed yet. Is he in line for an Antonio Pierce/Kendrell Bell ($5M per) type of deal or more along the lines of a Jeremiah Trotter/Chris Claiborne type of deal ($3M per)??

Lane Adkins: He is seeking a deal richer than that of Pierce and Bell.

Mike McLain: Hartwell has to be on the Browns' radar simply because of his prior association with Phil Savage in Baltimore. The problem at this time might be that Hartwell's asking price is too high. It will be interesting to see what the Browns do with the money saved after Courtney Brown is released. Hartwell's name could jump into the picture at that time.

Lane Adkins: Just to add............ Hartwell and Douglas are both targets that are slowing down on the Browns radar.

ChezDawg99: When you say "slowing down", do you mean the Browns are losing interest or are looking elsewhere?

Lane Adkins: Slowing down meaning the potential for the Browns to acquire these/this player(s) increases by the day. Hartwell is an impact player.

Cavsfan90: Lane is Hartwell coming to town? What is the interest by the Browns?

Lane Adkins: He is not scheduled to come to town at this time......



So there you have it. looks like Hartwell wants to play here . . . . .do we pay him?

Absolutely we pay him.

Whatever anyone else offers, plus $2M.

If we sign him, the MLB problem is solved. Then we bring in Phifer for depth, and concentrate on OLB in the draft.

I don't think they would have cut CB if they didn't feel they had a good chance on bringing in another difference maker like Hartwell, only one who stays healthy.

Sign Hartwell then trade down in the draft to pick up Merriman and later get Shazor... sounds like a damn good defense

Yeah, that wouldnot be bad at all, but the more I hear about it, the less I believe anybody in the top 12 will trade up.

I would be happy with Hartwelll, Rolle, and Blackstock or Ware as well
