    Because the two teams that know Osweiler the best moved on from him the last two years.

    I don't see Osweiler improving the Browns. The picks they have in the next 2 Drafts are huge though.

    I think he will help the Browns Hue will run the ball first anyways.

    The question will be do they draft Fournette with the first pick or draft Cook with the 2nd first round pick or do they draft no back?

    He'll help them. But they'll still finish last in the division. If he's the starter Week 1 I don't think he'll be the starter by the end of the season.

    I think they will be better than the Bengals.

    I think this is a brilliant deal. They have the money to take on this deal. They can just cut him. 8 1st and 2nd round picks over the next two years. 4 this year and 4 next. If they keep all of them, they could end up with a solid core.

    My hope is that they don't try and use them to get Jimmy G from the Pats.

    Why? They had the salary cap to take his contract on this year. I doubt he even plays a game for the Browns. The essentially just bought themselves another 2nd round pick with it. Very smart move.

    Now it comes down to if the Browns can hit on a lot of these draft picks they will have. Hopefully they continue to miss on them, or else they will end up being a good team soon.

    I remember.

    If the Bengals can't beat a Browns team led by Brock Osweiler we are worse off than even @Hellbird thinks.

    We aren't that bad.....yet, but we will probably finish 3rd in the division.

    I know, we are pretty good.

    If our Offense comes together I am thinking 10 and 6.

    Cleveland may pay him a $11 Million Roster Bonus then unload him as a $5M back up, at least that was what some speculation was this morning.
