Cleveland Browns Jerseys

Source says all five Restricted Free Agents signed their tenders…

From Cleveland.com

Cleveland.com is reporting all five guys have signed their tenders.

All five Browns restricted free agents signed their one-year tender offers today, a league source told the Plain Dealer.

They are D’Qwell Jackson, Jerome Harrison, Matt Roth, Abe Elam and Lawrence Vickers.

All four but Roth received second-round tenders worth $1.759 million. Roth’s is $1.809 million because he had five accrued seasons instead of four. The players had until 11:59 p.m. Tuesday night to sign or they would’ve had their offers reduced to 10 percent of their 2009 base salaries.

In the case of all but Elam, they would have lost at least $1 million for the year.

Jackson said in a text message, “I’m just ready to play ball again regardless of the circumstances.”

The Browns have released five players who were not expected to make the final roster, but they have not yet released those players’ names.

    At the end of the day, business prevails. The pig says “oink”, the cow says “moo” the sheep says “baa” and the meeting was adjourned. Get on the field and play. My guess is that they will all be Brownies for years to come.

      Roth – show your worth for a full year.

      Vickers – we need you…I’m suspecting Hillis cannot block near as well as you.

      Elam – we gave up a ton to get you…shut up and groom the younger guys…you are not off to a good start and really, you are lucky to be on a team.

      Jackson – you are close to becoming irrelevant.

      Harrison – felt the heat and worried about losing your tenuous starting position…now go out and bust your behind to keep your job.

      ** Agents(Lawyers) are costing most of these guys their jobs. AND most of them wouldn’t admit it but they did not feel like attending mini-camp anyway…it was expected.

    I totally agree with Sipe. I was just thinking this weekend about Roth, does anyone know why Parcells cut him?

    One interesting tidbit, I’ve done a couple Fantasy mocks already and while Harrison is rated higher Hardesty is getting picked before him. Not that is means anything but it shows who the general public thinks will win the job and what little faith anyone has with Harrison.
