Report: Anderson Turns Down Three-Year Deal from the Browns

Anderson and Cribbs at the Pro Bowl

Looks like Derek Anderson is going to play hard ball with the Browns in terms of trying to get a long-term deal done.  The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Anderson has turned down the Browns first offer of a three-year deal worth $16 million with $11 mil of it guaranteed.  The story is that Anderson wants a five-year deal.  The QB is playing this weekend in the Pro Bowl in Hawaii.  Anderson had better be careful, as there are still plenty of people out there that believe that Anderson will not even be the Browns starter in the 2008 season, and that somehow, someway, the starting job will go to Brady Quinn.

    He must be talking to much to those pro bowlers with tooooo much $$$

    Anderson deserves a five year deal though, he did great for the Browns. And they need Anderson after Cleveland’s better year last season.

    I think the contract is a good one. With 11 mill of it guaranteed, One good thing is that we have Quinn. 5 years deal is to much.

    This team is right around the corner from being good to a great team in a couple of years. I have been a browns fan for 40 years. Its about time.

    Anderson played well but the Cincinnati game showed that he can revert back to being a major liability in a game. I say he should take the 11 million while he can. Otherwise, the Browns should let him go. He does not deserve a 5 year deal for a 15 game performance. If he does well during the 3 year deal the Browns can give him a new contract. If he does not like it I’d give the ball to Quinn and tell Anderson to take a hike.
