Browns extend contract offers to Resricted Free Agents….


The Browns took the procedural step Tuesday of extending qualifying offers to their five unsigned restricted free agents, General Manager Tom Heckert confirmed. The next move belongs to the players. If they don’t sign the one-year contract tenders by June 15, the club has the option to substitute a 10 percent raise over their 2009 base salaries. In four of the five cases, the substitute offers would be more than $1 million less than the ones currently on the table. Heckert has said the club is considering using the substitute option if the players don’t sign. The players involved are running back safety Abram Elam, running back Jerome Harrison, linebacker D’Qwell Jackson, linebacker Matt Roth and fullback Lawrence Vickers. All but Harrison have been absent from off-season workouts, which are voluntary. Harrison joined the workouts last week after signing an injury waiver.

    This is the business of the game. Everybody signs, gets into camp, plays the season and then gets a fresh look then. My guess is that most of these guys will be playing for this team for years to come — assuming they play well this year and fit in with the overall scheme of things. Nobody offered any of them more than what Cleveland did; that should tell them something. It sure tells me something — and should be a reality check for all of them.
