Browns to sign DeDe Dorsey

With rumors flying that the Browns will place running back Jamal Lewis on injured reserve, a league source tells us that the Browns currently intend to make the move.

Thus, if Lewis makes good on a prior vow to retire after the season, his football days are over.

Per the source, the Browns will be signing DeDe Dorsey to replace Lewis.

Dorsey played for the UFL champion Las Vegas Locomotives, and he worked out for the Browns on Tuesday.

Dorsey previously spent two full seasons with the Bengals and one with the Colts.  Cincinnati cut Dorsey after the 2009 regular-season opener, and he opted for the UFL in lieu of waiting for another NFL team to call.

Dorsey finished second in the UFL in rushing, with 369 yards.  But he averaged a whopping 6.4 yards per carry.  He also had 22 receptions for 130, and he scored six total touchdowns.

    @ The Coop
    His wife is currently chasing him with a knife.
    This is Man-Cunts answer, signing DeDe Dorsey? Can’t wait for more sub 50 yard rushing / sub 100 yard passing games.

    I’m guessing that William Green is laying low still trying to avoid Kevin Johnson.

    It’s a shame that Cleveland has to lose the best running back in Browns history

    James Harrison is underrated if you ask me, don’t know his health status but it seems like MAngini doesn’t want to play him, I think that’s weird. I liked Dede though, but Browns fans, you’ll still need a bell cow, if I’m running the team it’s Harrison spelled by Dorsey. He’s got great speed and lateral movement and is always a threat for the big play, I was disappointed when he was cut this year.

    I’m guessing you’ll find William Green curled up in a ball in some seedy crackhouse.
    Did I really read today that there is exactly ONE draft choice from the 2008 draft on the clowns current roster?!?!? How much more pathetic can this circus get?
    I used to have a healthy date of near-hatred for the clowns and their fans. Now I just feel sorry for them.
    See you next week. Please take it easy on the Stillers. They need every win they can get this year as well.
    May as well lose them all and get the chance to blow the number 1 draft choice this year.

    De De has great quickness and break away speed. Not to mention he is one hell of a special teams player. I hope he does well for the rest of the year.

    Please somebody tell me, does mangini actually run a football team ? see you in the UFL mangenius. If your lucky..

    Actually DeDe Dorsey’s a pretty good. He just caught up in glut of runningbacks in Cincinnati,

  11. slapsbrats says: Dec 2, 2009 3:32 PM

    Good back, just small. Interestingly, he had more than one punt block while on the Bengals. Certainly explosive, just not much of a blocker on passing downs.

    Yeah, that Jim Brown fellow was nothing more than a journeyman.

    According to a source, DeDe Dorsey hasn’t signed with the Browns, and has left Cleveland.

    Not to mention Earnest Byner, Kevin Mack, Leroy Kelly, Leroy Hoard, and Eric Metcalf. But, alas, Mr.”RepublicansAreAssholes” knows this, and was merely being a trolling shitstirrer to see if he could get a rise out of anyone. Fail.

    “Dorsey played for the UFL champion Las Vegas Locomotives, and he worked out for the Browns on Tuesday.”
    This sentence reminds me of Seinfeld trying to return a jacket.
    Way to throw the UFL part in there out of spite, Florio.

    Brownies. Dede Dorsey is a great running back. Glad we don’t have to play you again this year if you sign him.
