The Usual Browns news...

Recommended Posts

They get their fans hopes up by making it sound like Kelly will sign with them.. but wait....he's wondering if he wants to go to the Elephant's Graveyard of HC's...


On Friday night, it sounded like it was a done deal the Cleveland Browns were going to get Oregon's Chip Kelly. Nearly 24 hours later, there are increasing doubts whether Cleveland will get its top choice.


The Browns were set to meet with Kelly for dinner after his interviews with the Bills and Eagles. The problem is, Kelly's lunch meeting with the Eagles has stretched into dinner and the Browns have yet to sit down with him, a source told The Plain Dealer.


The NFL Network, which reported Kelly was close to a deal with the Browns, is now reporting that the Browns had a second interview with Syracuse coach Doug Marrone. He is probably the fall-back option now if the Browns are unable to get Kelly.


During talks between the Browns and Kelly, the two sides agreed he'll need an upgrade at quarterback to run his scheme..


No shit. I'm sure that took a lot of thought and deliberation.


They sought permission to interview Vikings assistant general manager George Paton and Chiefs director of pro personnel Ray Farmer, according to reports by Fox Sports' Jay Glazer and ESPN's Adam Schefter

Finally the Browns are being more realistic on where to find somebody who might want to be the HC....


Citing a pair of league sources, Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer reported that Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman of the CFL met with the team in Berea, Ohio, on Tuesday. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport later confirmed the interview, via a source with knowledge of the team's plans.

They should never have fired Shurmur. He was actually doing a pretty good job and they stayed competitive the whole year which is a quantum leap forward for the Browns. With another good draft they might have been in position for .500 season.
