The Browns look forward to adding to the success that they had last year with the addition of a few good men. The Browns have been very aggressive this off-season. The team’s defensive line was its glaring weakness, and Phil Savage set out to fix that problem with the trades for Shaun Rogers and Corey Williams. The Browns now have star power up front and they also have plenty of depth, which will be very important in keeping Rogers fresh and as productive as possible.
Rogers can be dominating, or he can disappear and be lack luster. John Clayton of ESPN reported yesterday that Rogers looked very impressive in workouts and drills. He went on to say that on one particular play Rogers drove veteran, center Hank Fraley six yards back on his way to the quarterback. How much the Browns’ coaching staff gets out of him may be the key to how successful the defense is next season. Corey Williams has the skills to quickly adapt to the Browns’3-4 scheme and will be an immediate presence as an interior pass rusher, an area where Cleveland was deficient last year.
The Browns also added talented speedster Donte’ Stallworth to an already explosive offense. Though he has been inconsistent and has bounced around the league, he can be a difference-maker as a downfield threat and gaining yards after the catch. Center Rex Hadnot was an excellent signing. He brings versatility, aggressiveness and power to the Browns’ interior offensive line. I can’t wait to see the impact that these acquisitions can make. I credit the Browns and Savage for having the guts to make improvements on an already improving team. Go BROWNS!
