**** CLEVELAND BROWNS THREAD ****


Recommended Posts

This is from the 'skins thread. I don't follow sports radio or TV so have no idea how reliable these sources are. Just thought it was germane to the discussion:

Dan Patrick on his show said his source said Trent Williams WILL be traded and Washington will get a 1st round pick for him and then use that 1st on an O lineman.

If they can convince Tampa to do that, good for them.

Dan Patrick is an idiot, doubt the Redskins will get even close to that

Browns have $65M in cap room next year, they are fine

Garrett's going into his 5th year option, that isn't accounted for. Then he's getting re-upped. A decision needs made on Njoku too. Vernon, Ogunjobi, and Hunt are free agents. The only DB's under contract are Ward, Greedy, and Redwine. The only LB's under contract and Takitaki and Wilson.  Then there are the Baker and Ward contracts looming the year after (Chubb's gone).

That $65m in cap space won't go very far. Giving 20% of it to Williams while also giving up a meaningful pick with all of those other holes has consequences. And that's if the cap goes up as originally projected - given what the 2020 season may be like the cap may go down for the first time in years.

You probably tag Vernon, let Garrett, Hunt and Ogunjobi walk, re-sign Njoku in 21' , also OBJ is likely to be traded is free up another $15M

So you decimate your D-Line to sign an over 30 year old LT who hardly played in 2 years?

I was trying to get soulfly to be the one to say this - I wanted to virtually see his heart rip in two because I am not a good person. A Trent Williams trade happening expedites somebody's exit - and I think he's the first to go. Yes, analytics value WR. But 15% of the max budget on two players is...a lot.

Garrett's not going anywhere and while I don't think Vernon gets franchised you have me wondering now if he may get Transitioned. I think these guys want in on the comp pick pick formula, so there is additional incentive to retain your own. And EDGE2 is gonna be a problem come season's end with this draft class not appearing as though it will provide a potential fix.

...and adding Lamb now will make that one year a tumultuous one. So if we add a WR round one then Beckham's gotta go now. I think a day two WR would be a great idea though. The gettin' will still be good with this class and it won't be a perceived threat to his fragile psyche, so you can develop him with the goal of getting rid of Beckham at season's end then sliding the now 2nd year pro into the starting unit.

Source to me just now regarding the #Browns discussions on Trent Williams, as of this morning: "Everything is still open at this point."

- Josina Anderson

Ps: Trent w an interesting IG story post this morning... 

Didn't that "bomb" hit like 24 hours ago, not this morning?  I'll be shocked if we make a move for Trent.  Totally shocked.

This is a legit tweet from @PFF just now. 

Yes, the coveted analytic team

Browns:

Trade for Trent Williams 
Grab Ceedee Lamb https://t.co/0lwJisuVZs

 

that looks familiar. 

PFF "best case scenario" uses the 3rd round pick to get this done.  Is that what you're saying as well?  Or you're saying you'd trade a 2nd?  What type contract is PFF and SF considering giving him?

I agree they have no leverage.  

At least if it's a 3rd I could still breathe.  I still don't think it would make much sense with my long term lens (if we instead drafted a young stud tackle) and financially if we're going to pay him like a top tackle.

I would not be happy about a 3rd, but I wouldn't vent about it. I would vent if it were a 2nd, but an analytic minded decision making group isn't going to do that so I'm not going to worry about it. I think the more likely scenario involves pick swaps.

If we pull off the trade then draft Lamb we must move Beckham as soon as possible, even if it's for 2021 draft compensation. I don't think we will, but that's the if-then.

FYI - Joe Thomas just said on air he hopes to see Trent in a Browns jersey. Said he's a lock HoF'er and would be the #1 tackle in this draft today. 

Joe knows what he's talking about. They should trade a 2nd and grab a stud to protect that mediocre QB. ;)
