Browns in the Mix for Broncos WR Marshall?

81707271DP020_BUFFALO_BILLS
There is a new AFC North team in the mix for Broncos unhappy wide out Brandon Marshall. With the Ravens already making comments on Marshall, the Cleveland Browns are now reportedly on board as a possible place where Marshall may end up. PFT.com reported earlier tonight that Cleveland could be the spot where Marshall ends up.

The site reports that the package would include kick returner/receiver Josh Cribbs and one or more draft picks. Cribbs is unhappy in Cleveland, as he says he was promised by the old regime that he would get a new deal, and the new men in charge in Cleveland said that is not going to happen.

Grabbing Marshall may also spark the team to once again look for a team for wide out Braylon Edwards, who before the draft was the talk of a number of trade rumors, including going to the Giants or possibly Philadelphia.

    This would drive the Cribbs lovers in Brownstown crazy. No opinions can be expressed on this without knowing more about the “one or more draft picks”. The rest of it is a no-brainer in favour of getting Marshall.

    I’m hoping this is just blowing smoke to up the ante on the Ravens trying to get him. I generally don’t like the feel of this, although i admitt i don’t have anything solid to nix it.

    Matt……….dude you were doing so good the past couple of months and now you have relapsed with BS trade talk rumors….just like you said the edwards trade was intimate…..

    Ok lets look at this source (I will give you a lesson in journalism) profootballtalk.com even proclaims themselves on their site the following: “Launched in November 2001, Profootballtalk.com has only one objective — to inform and to entertain. (Okay, we have two objectives.)…[…]We’re the first to admit that we don’t always adhere to pure journalistic standards….[…]..Our Photo of the Day is usually a parody of someone whose balls we want to break — resident Bad Boy TacoBill has all the doctoring tools for that stuff, which has seen national media attention.”

    OK- with that said their site also is flooded with advertisements more than most respectable news outlets so they are looking for $$$….they even admitt they are garbage and are for entertainment. When your looking for a story and you see a source like this its best to ignore it like guys named Terry Pluto. This trade tlak is complete BS they are not looking for a number 1 receiver they are Stacked at the position…..they have almost too many receivers, and to give up Cribbs a Mangini “football” player up for a whiney WR, Mangini doesn’t want to trade a good apple for a bad one. He wants players with good heads, like cribbs who refuses to holdout.

    Matt I will apologize for you, SORRY Browns fans for putting this BS story up to stir the pot in Cleveland……I could not find a worth while story so I just copy and pasted this story off a source about as reliable as the National Inquire….

    I could not agree more Logan! Yes Marshall is a talented receiver, but who needs the headache? Not Mangini, see KW II for example. The Browns are not going to trade away probably their most productive player AND team minded player for that whining, police blotter Marshall.

    Now some will say that Josh was asking for a bigger contract, I think that was more his agent than Josh, those slime balls will do anything to line their pockets with the blood sweat and tears of their clients. Besides, Josh was there.

    Can Stallworth, let the new Vets help out Robiskie, Masaquai and Braylon, we have the makings of a great receiver corps and let someone else deal with that whiner Marshall.

    The guy’s got some pretty impressive stats — better than Braylon over the past 2 years. But, it is not possible to fix everything on this team that needs fixed in one year. No need to sell out the future this year for a team that is not going anywhere — again. With a team that offensively failed to score a TD in its last 6 games, a lot needs to be done. Keep Braylon. It is a contract year for him. If he performs as he can and leaves in FA (most likely scenario, I believe) we would get a 1 & a 3 in the draft. There are always good receivers available in FA — or possible trades: at the end of this season, either DA or Brady will be trade bait, I should think. If they improve significantly this year — which means become average — then I would look for the 2010 season to be where they show signs of play-off competitiveness.
