Look hers my list of players that you will see leave this off season.

Dwill HB $8.7M
Gamble CB $9.75M
Murphy WR $1.26M
Clausen QB $815K
Brokel FB/TE $465K
A Edwards WR $668K
Munnerlyn CB $1.323M
Martin FS $850K
Beason LB $5.50M I dont see him staying or wanting to stay if Luke stays MLB
Gross OT $11.5M Will be cut or they attempt to redue his contract $11.5 this season
Hartsock TE $1.040M

Thats almost $42M off the cap that we can do without. Due to age or skills or the fact we do noit need 3 QB's, 4-5 TE's and so on


You have no idea how the cap works do you? Beason and Deangelo carry HUGE cap hits if you cut/trade them....

Beason... bye. Anderson/Keek/draft pick
Gamble... bye. The Josh's can take over.
Davis... back-up or bye.
Gross... bye. First pick needs to be o-line.
Smitty... restructure?
D-Lo... bye. Stewie and Tolbert.

Former Cleveland GM Phil Savage is said to be interested in the job, according to a league source. The Browns went 18-30 in Savage’s three-year tenure from 2006-08. Savage, a former Browns assistant under Bill Belichick, is the executive director of the Senior Bowl and Alabama’s color analyst.

For 12 mill we can get any 4 mofo's with an upside...Fricken Hurney has this team so hamstrung its going to take a minimum of 2 years to dig outta this mess...


This is what people need to realize...we will need to rebuild next year. We will need to make some difficult cuts/trades.

Either Beason or J. Anderson will have to go. It's not feasible for Anderson to become a back-up LB after he's been our reliable starter at LB for the past 2-3 years. It's not feasible for Beason to go back to MLB after we've invested our future into Kuechly and he's been excelling at MLB. Something will have to give.

IMO, Gamble and Gross are gone. We will need that extra cap room in order to make some other necessary cuts.

Godrey should be gone since he has a relatively low cap hit and he's been a disappointment

If it could be done I would have no problem blowing this whole team up and starting from scratch with all new players, coaches, training staff and front office. What good times did we have as a team in the last several years, that make any of these guys irreplaceable ? I say do what needs to be done as a five year plan to get us to the NFC championship personalities be damned.

Yeah yeah yeah guaranteed money and all that. blah blah blah.... The funds that I threw up were an attempt ot show how stupid the GM was. DWll hit is due to the time of his contract (remaining time). Sam thing with Beason who signed his extension the same year as Dwill new contract. So yes I do know how it works very much so. But there are ways around these things and ways to stretch the hit out a little bit.

whoever comes in is gonna have to find a masterful way to ease some of these guys out who we can't afford to trade by using the talents they do have and drafting guys specifically to replace them at the time of their projected departure. i expect one or two cuts (and maybe a little bit of restructuring) but we'll probably be making one or two key free agency signings and betting on a solid draft.

truth be told if we have a competent coaching staff next season those changes should easily be enough to make us competitive right off the bat, and the following season we'll be able to really start molding and tailoring the way we want this team's personnel dynamic to look.

we are two starting-caliber offensive linemen away from competency on offense and two extra defensive players from competency on defense. toss in coordinators and coaches that can motivate, lead, and manage games worth half a poo and we'll look damn good next year.

hurney has left a legacy of problems for sure but we are far from hamstrung.

Tough to make trades when the rest of the league knows you have cap problems.
