I am not sure I buy BB doing that if the price in return was right. I also find it hard to believe he still holds a grudge against Cleveland, but who knows.

    When Jimmy G was either traded or it was ineveitable to the Browns he would be traded to someone else, Hue turned his attention to AJ.

    Mike Silver has a ggod relationship with Hue that goes back to his Oakland Raiders days.
    Thank you I was just curious where you heard that. Makes sense.

    The Browns tried repeatedly to get Jimmy G before the 2017 draft. Bill B would not trade him. It is not because BB still holds a grudge against Cleveland. New England has been a frequent trade partner with Cleveland for several years, for example LB Jamie Collins, Oct. of 2016.

    The trade to send Jimmy G to San Fran occurring this October was done quickly and without giving anyone else a chance to make an offer. I believe this is because San Fran had something Bill B wanted, Brian Hoyer. BB knew Hoyer would be cut and when he was cut New England immediately picked him up as the backup QB. This is a familiar role for Hoyer and BB. This is where Hoyer got his start. BB knows Hoyer's capabilities and is comfortable with him running his offense.

    Cleveland wasn't given a chance to make an offer to NE for Jimmy G. They could have easily matched it. Then it was discovered late that Cinci was willing to deal McCarron to Cleveland. The Browns and Bengals are NOT usual trade partners because they are in the same division. Apparently, Sashi Brown fumbled this opportunity and it was his last move in Cleveland.

    So, I agree with @Bengal Maniac, Hue preferred Garropolo.

    If Rosen holds out until 2019 the Browns will still be there waiting buddy.

He was also held under 100 yards passing in three games this season.

    If someone drafts Josh Allen over Darnold, Rosen, Jackson or Mayfield they have rocks in their head. Heck, I may even take that gun-slinger from Stillwater, Rudolph, ahead of him. In fact, as I type this, yes, I would. What is going to benefit Allen is that there will be 1,377 Wentz comparisons over the next 3 months -- I'll smirk every time.

If you aren't gonna spend like Jerry Jones, don't expect the same results. Maybe I should have used a better example but, I trust you get my point.
    Revenue sharing. There is no need to do what it takes and you still take home truck loads of money. The Hugh Culverhouse/Mike Brown way of running a NFL franchise.

    I could be wrong but after his performance today, he might want to stay another year and perfect his craft. Still believe he is one of (if not THE)most dynamic players in football, he just needs some work. But that's just my opinion.

    He is more RG III like. I'll pass on Lamar.

    I'd go with Mason Rudolph, probably in the 2nd round. Then get him some help.

    RGIII didn't play qb the entire time he was a Baylor was he? I thought he came in as a receiver before moving to qb. Jackson has been there since day one. I think even with his flaws, he's still a better qb than Griffen. But even with that, he still needs to improve his game.

    Outside of Rosen and Mayfield I like Rudolph the most.

    Darnold and Rosen both announced they are entering the draft.
