    That's just INSANE why would you want to build your team around blue chip building blocks?

      Edwards is going to bolt out of Cleveland the first chance he gets, hence why ManKok is looking to trade him.

      But exactly why I wouldn't budge an inch if I'm Reese. Hell no a 1st or Kiwi is involved.

        Edwards isn't that good. I would say a 2nd and a 4th for sure. Just like D-Unit said. I don't think he is worth Kiwi AND a 1st. That is just crazy.

What happens when you play a very good run stopping defense and you have to pass it. What if you are down 3 and it is 3rd and long?? You are going to need someone to be a distraction to get other guys open or to get open to make that catch.
          Steve Smith and the Boss are enough for converting third downs. Our receiving core isn't bad, it just doesn't have anyone who demands regular double teams. A team can be successful passing the ball with a good QB and that type of receiving core if the plan for it, our passing game last year was built from plax down, when he was out it just sort of imploded, now hoever we have a full offseason to adjust things.

            As for Quinn, I don't think Mangini likes him as the QB to build his team around. After spending a year with Favre, I assume he wants more of a strong armed QB who he feels can take the bull by the horns and lead the team. Apparently he loves Sanchez, so why not make the change if you like one, but not the other?
            You just described why Mangini is going to fail.

              Good I am glad! I couldn't be happier!

              Kiwanuka and a first? Are they insane?

                I agree that a 1st and Kiwanuka is too much. 2nd and a mid round pick is too low though. Even a 1st by itself is too low. It's basically trading Edwards for a rookie WR who's future prospects are as a #2 (Hakeem Nicks or Kenny Britt), or something of similar value if it's not a WR picked at 29. It's a first rounder, yeah, but by only 3 slots. 1st and 3rd or something of that value or that range is what Edwards should go for. 1st/5th/Hixon or Manningham would make sense too.

                  I'm actually pretty happy. I'd give our 1 or a 2nd, low pick and Hixon.

                  Smith and Kiwi should not go anywhere, especially not with a pick involved with it. the browns are crazy. use the picks to trade for Q, a better WR. or draft Britt/Nicks, sign a vet FA and see what happens.

                  Britt and Nicks will be better than Braylon in a couple years anyway

                    You know we can tag him right? Also, for every report out there saying Edwards wants out of Cleveland is a report talking about how he wants to stay here.

                    Let's get some activity going in the Cleveland sub-forum!

If the Browns want Kiwanuka they would probably have to settle for a 2nd and maybe a later round pick in addition. Browns have more bargaining power right now, they don't have to move Edwards but the Giants will be wanting a #1 WR badly, and Edwards won't be any harder to get than Boldin. If the Browns don't get a first round pick for him then Kiwanuka better be involved.
                      You guys have don't have more bargaining power...

                      We are the ONLY team in the bidding.. Who else is there?
                      Also, reports were that BE doesn't want to stay a brown? He has been working out with the team at all? One would assume with a new HC and GM, you want to be a team leader and impress them by working out with your team mates? Is he doing that? From what I know I would say, so correct me if I am wrong by all means.

                      We can wait this out, and or just use our 10 picks:

                      1
                      2 2s
                      3 3s
                      4
                      2 5s
                      6
                      7


                      and build our team that way. Remember we aren't the 4-12 team here. We can simply just use our picks and build via the draft. You guys have to deal with a player who doesn't want to be there accordingly to reports. Let's put it this way, if you want him so bad, then extend him. Why is he on sale? And why isn't he accepting your contact?

                      We can wait this out, or say screw it and build from our draft. It's not a big deal. Seems like our fan base and media are having knee jerk reactions to losing Burress, while the franchise is staying level headed.

                          He has sick potential, but a team shouldn't have to trade alot of compensation based on potential. I want to see production as well. So 1 1000 plus season in his career and pro bowl, and 1 lead the league in drops doesn't warrant a big time price to trade for him..

                          Let's not forget we gotta pay the guy too. What kind of contract does he want? If we have to break the bank for him, then hell no. He can stay in Cleveland and let them break the bank for him.

                            We do have more power because we don't have to move him this year. We can resign or tag him after the season and/or trade him next year or the year after that. Giants are gonna be pressured to add a #1 this year, they know that it's something their offense needs to be great. Remember, the Browns have absolutly nothing at WR after Edwards and it doesn't look like either way that they're gonna pick Crabtree at 5. We have Syndric Steptoe and Joshua Cribbs or David Patten starting with Edwards out of the picture.

                              see, the Giants DON'T have to make this move, because we've got 10 draft picks and only one major need. We can move around and play with them. Neither team "has to" make this move

                                Now there's an idea. Too bad the Browns FO is too busying eating bananas and throwing their own feces to bother making good decisions.
