|Browns agree with Josh McCown, 3-year deal|
Hoyer not likely to be re-signed
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Feb 27, 5:45 pm
|The Browns agreed to terms with Josh McCown, 35, on a three-year deal Friday after a bidding war between the Browns and Bills, who are now coached by Rex Ryan. McCown's signing decreases the chances that the Browns will re-sign Brian Hoyer. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)|
FFToday's Take: The fact that there was a "bidding war" for McCown's services is good indication of just how weak the free agent quarterback class is this season. McCown is familiar with offensive coordinator John DeFilippo from their days in Oakland (2007) and is expected to serve as a mentor for Johnny Manziel. With no receiving options to speak of, McCown is nothing more than a QB2 in fantasy leagues.
|Johnny Manziel enters rehab facility|
Browns QB getting treatment
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Feb 2, 10:35 am
|Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, who's been photographed partying from coast to coast since the day he was drafted, entered a treatment facility Wednesday and is getting the help he needs, according to a family friend and advisor. "Johnny knows there are areas in which he needs to improve in order to be a better family member, friend and teammate, and he thought the offseason was the right time to take this step." (Cleveland Plain Dealer)|
FFToday's Take: Manziel's partying was displayed on social media during the year including a photo of him and rolled up dollar bill in a bar bathroom. Manziel also missed a team meeting late in the season and admitted to partying the night before. He's got a long way to go if wants to make himself into a starting quarterback in the NFL.
|Browns hire John DeFilippo as OC|
Former Raiders QB coach headed to Cleveland
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jan 21, 10:45 am
|The Cleveland Browns have decided on Oakland Raiders quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo to be their new offensive coordinator, Northeast Ohio Media Group has confirmed. DeFilippo, a rising young offensive star in the NFL at the age of 36, worked with Mike Pettine in 2009 when both were with the New York Jets. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)|
FFToday's Take: DeFilippo got an interview for the same position last season before Cleveland decided to go with Kyle Shanahan. This will be DeFilippo's first job as OC and will have a challenge on his hands dealing with the Johnny Manziel circus show and a wide receiver corps that could be minus Josh Gordon.
