    Unbelievable! How do you not sign or tender Roth/Jackson/Vickers higher! All three of those have more than proved themselves, Harrisin, I love as our back, but he needs to produce a whole season, same old Browns, let good players go for nothing!

    As I understand it, this means that the Browns get the opportunity to match any offer made by another team at this level. So, if I’m correct, they seem to be locking in these players at this compensation level — not bailing on them. Teams all around the league are spinning players. I see Vickers, Harrison, Roth staying around — but I also see draft choices should they leave. This means packaging a 2nd round choice with maybe a player to get another 1. These guys are good enough to attract that kind of offer. To me, they are positioning themselves to acquire certain targeted players in the draft. If Rogers goes, then I see a DE or DT — and there are more than a couple that would look good in a Browns uniform. Williams I thought would be playing somewhere else; he’s a 4-3 type of guy — and a good one, at that. Good luck to him and I wish him the best. Detroit promises to be a much improved team, if they finish the moves they are contemplating. Wouldn’t it be cool to see Detroit and Cleveland playing again for NFL supremacy — a 50’s redux? Can Jones (NYJ) be in Cleveland’s plans? He’s good for 20-25 carries a game and would look very good next to Harrison — or CJ Spiller. I love this time of year
