list of Browns news and information
Updated 5/25..... The Browns have been calm and
quiet after the 'rush' of free agent signings over the
past couple of months. The Browns have been able to land
some very good talent that had changed the entire look of
this 'expansion team'. Well folks, an expansion team this
will not be. The Browns have brought in some experienced
pros that definitely will make the Browns very
competitive this upcoming season.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Browns have
brought in defensive tackles Jerry Ball and John Jurkovic.
In addition to those key signings, the Browns have added
possible all-pro linebacker Jamir Miller and former first
round draft choice of the Minnesota Vikings Derrick
Alexander. On draft day the Browns traded a fourth round
draft selection in acquiring fullback Marc Edwards from
The Browns draft was rated as excellent by the so-called
experts throughout the country. The Browns negotiated a
deal with the first selection prior to the draft, that
player is quarterback Tim Couch from the University of
Kentucky. Couch was the highest rated quarterback
available and with the Browns looking to the future
selected the promising Couch. The Browns proceeded to
select wide receiver Kevin Johnson with their first
selection of the second round. Johnson is a speedy wide-out
that has good hands. He has displayed game breaking
ability and should crack the Browns starting line-up
early in this, his rookie season. The Browns were
surprised to find a pass rushing linebacker available
with their second selection in the second round,
especially one named Rahim Abdullah. Abdullah stands 6'6
and weighs 240lbs, he is underclassman that came out of
Clemson early to find the riches of the NFL. The Browns
were pleasantly surprised to find him still on the board
and wasted no time in selecting him. In Couch, Johnson,
and Abdullah the Browns have obtained three players that
have been named to have first round potential or talent.
Time will tell, but on paper this looks like a tremendous
run by the Browns.
schedule, Browns open with Steelers at the new stadium
4/1....The Browns will play the Pittsburgh Steelers on
Sunday night September 12th, in Cleveland. The game will
be nationally televised by ESPN.
Browns to work out
3/30.... The Browns have requested that University of
Kentucky quarterback Tim Couch workout for the team again.
The Browns were impressed with his initial workout in
early March, but that workout was conducted for all NFL
teams and was short in nature. Browns head coach Chris
Palmer will be conducting the workout this time around
and the Browns hope to have their questions answered.
Browns sign Free
Agent defensive tackle Jurkovic, add a kicker, too
3/25.... After approximately 3 weeks of inactivity the
Browns have signed a bonefide run-stopper and even
brought in a kicker. With today's signing of former
Jacksonville defensive tackle John Jurkovic, the Browns
have addressed and significally improved their defensive
line. In other news today, the Browns signed placekicker
Phil Dawson, off the Patriots practice roster. Dawson a
rookie out of Texas has a strong leg and has been given
the opportunity to impress the Browns coaching staff.
