CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns failed to work out a trade that would have sent quarterback AJ McCarron to Cleveland for two undisclosed draft picks, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

According to Schefter, the two teams appeared to agree to a deal at 3:55 p.m. ET, five minutes before the deadline, but were not able to finalize it before the deadline passed. The Bengals sent the trade information to the NFL, while the Browns did not. The Browns argued to the league that the trade should still be allowed, but the NFL declined their request, a source told Schefter.........http://www.espn.com/...s-falls-through

This organization is beyond belief....

 


 

 

The Cleveland Browns’ quarterback situation is by now well-known. Owners of an 0-8 record, players at that position have combined for 17 interceptions on the season. The team also failed miserably in an attempt to trade for A.J. McCarron while also missing out on Jimmy Garoppolo prior to Tuesday’s trade deadline.

This comes after Cleveland received a second-round pick from Houston to take on Brock Osweiler’s four-year, $72 million deal, only to release him prior to the start of the season.

Now with the Broncos, Osweiler will start this upcoming week against the Philadelphia Eagles. He’ll also be paid $895,588 from the Browns for the start. This rings true for every subsequent time Osweiler starts for Denver throughout the remainder of the season. Osweiler’s contract was already known, as was Cleveland picking up said deal from Houston. Still, it’s yet another example of the Factory of Sadness coming into play....https://www.msn.com/...jVoi?li=BBnb7Kz

 

Are there any mature adults running this franchise?

Every time I think they are going in the right direction they do something like this.

In stunning fashion, the Browns first watched as the New England Patriots traded Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers for an offer the Browns easily could -- and should -- have topped.

The next day, the Browns agreed to a trade with the Cincinnati Bengals for backup AJ McCarron that had them sending second- and third-round picks to the Bengals. Except the trade was not submitted on time. So the deal was not approved.

That means the Browns now have traded picks that could have been Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson, did not make a trade for Garoppolo and then did make a trade for McCarron only to negate the deal by screwing up the paperwork.

To which I ask a question I've asked countless times before: Does this happen with other teams?...http://www.espn.com/...leveland-browns

 

They really work hard and work over time to be 0-8....

2nd and 3rd picks for McCarron? I would have screwed up the paperwork for that deal as well. Give that person a promotion and raise.
