Browns chat with running back Justin Fargas

The Browns are still looking at options at the running back spot, this despite a strong end of the year for Jerome Harrison. The team today talked to QB Jake Delhomme, but they also made time for a visit with former Raiders running back Justin Fargas, who was dumped after failing a physical by the team last week:

Free agent running back Justin Fargas, released last week by the Raiders, visited the Browns today, the club confirmed. There was no word yet on whether or not the team will sign him.

He is scheduled to visit the Eagles on Friday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Fargas, a third-round pick of the Raiders in 2003 out of USC, led the club in rushing in 2006-2008, including 1,000-yard seasons in 2007 and 2008. In 2009, he split time with two other backs, finishing second on the team with 491 yards on 129 carries. He also had three TDs.

Fargas missed the end of last season with a knee injury, but is believed to be healthy now. Waived just days before earning a $1.7 million roster bonus, Fargas told reporters the Raiders told him it was strictly about the money.

He said reports that he didn’t pass his Raiders physical were untrue.

“I definitely have a lot of football left in me,” Fargas told “I just want to do everything I can to help another team win a championship.”

The Browns also spoke with former Pats TE Ben Watson, and Delhomme was at the Berea complex, but word from is that he will take a visit with the Saints on Friday.

    They have been, haven’t they. unfortunately for you they can and have done something about it. Unlike the sad loss of a life you represent; as you cannot do anything about stupid.
