The Browns have two major needs “on paper” right now for this team, a pass rusher and a veteran receiver. Could the Browns get both by the end of the week? Osi Umenyiora wants a new deal and out of New York. If you were Tom Heckert would you offer the Giants your 2nd rd pick for the Giants pass rusher? Most clubs have to feel the Browns will be drafting high again this season due to the new coach and youth movement, so the pick could be in the top ten of the second round. I know the Giants want to get a first round pick for Osi but speculation around the league is that that is too steep.  How much would Osi Umenyiora make the defense better? I feel it would be a great step in the right direction for the organization to have his talent on that side of the ball.

Steve Doerschuk of the Canton Repository wrote a story on Terrell Owens coming to Cleveland.

One alluring Browns target could be 37-year-old wide receiver Terrell Owens. Heckert was with the Eagles when Owens helped lead them to a Super Bowl. Holmgren has always had a soft spot for older receivers. He was Jerry Rice’s last head coach, when Rice turned 42.

Terrell Owens hasn’t been the headcase like he was early in his career. His last two stints with the Bengals and Bills you can almost say he was a model teammate. It would add another weapon to the arsenal on offense and help Colt McCoys development. The move would probably open up the offense and help out Mo Mass and Brian Robiskie in there third year with the team. If T.O checked his attitude at the door, and I can’t believe I am saying this, he could be a great fit for the Cleveland Browns. When T.O is on the field you can’t bring the safety in the box in fear of him beating you on the deep ball so that should help out the Browns run game and Hillis.

Heckert and Holmgren have already added some players with baggage this offseason via the draft,  and if they pulled these moves it would really put their stamp on the team.  I know even adding one of the two would be a shock for Browns fans, but if the team did pull off a deal for Osi and T.O this week it would without a doubt increase the teams chances of playing meaningful games in December.

  1. Ward I wrote about getting Umenyiora but all the current reporting has the Ravens, Seahawaks (Osi’s preferred team), Falcons and some others interested in trading for him but no mention of the Browns.

    We could really use a DE that has actually performed in the NFL before. Mitchell is a bum and Sheard is unproven.

  2. […] Greg Little WR CLE – He has got a checked past with the NCAA but that was then and this is the NFL. The Browns are going West Coast and Little should fit well into this system. Masaquoi screwed the pooch last year and Brian Robiskie was a non-factor. With the commitment to Colt Mccoy at QB there will be some growing pains. However, I do feel that Mccoy does have the skill set to make it with the West Coast set. Heckert would have traded for Kolb if he didn’t think Mccoy could do it . Little is 6’2 231lbs so at least we aren’t dealing with the midget factor. I haven’t heard too much out of camp (I have an email out to a beat reporter for Cleveland—i’ll update when I hear back). I honestly believe 800 yards and 5 TDs is not out of the realm of possibility. ****All this goes up in smoke if TO signs with Cleveland as Brownsgab suggests**** […]

    Let’s get Osi, Why not we have the money and we usually tend not to draft well in Rd 2 anyways!We need some serious help on the D-Line and why not bring in Owens too! Not like its gonna hurt anything!

  4. […] Wow – bold suggestion: “Terrell Owens hasn’t been the headcase like he was early in his career. His last two stints with the Bengals and Bills you can almost say he was a model teammate.

    Maybe Osi, but not T.O. DL is still an area of need. My concerns on defense are the LBs as the greatest position of need. I regret losing Roth, but realize it’s a scheme thing for him, so I wish him luck. To be perfectly honest, McCoy looks like he has some issues – that may be inexperience, but could be deeper. We may find ourselves very glad, indeed, to have Seneca around.
