The Cleveland Browns are considering a number of options at quarterback this off-season. Troy Smith hopes one of those options is him.
Smith, a restricted free agent who was tendered at the original round level by the Ravens, would love it if the Browns would sign him to an offer sheet or work out a trade with the Ravens that would put him in Cleveland.
“He would crawl from Baltimore right now to be able to play in Cleveland,” Smith’s agent Ralph Cindrich told the Canton Repository. “That’s clearly where his heart is.”
Smith was born in Cleveland and won the Heisman Trophy at Ohio State. Cindrich says Smith wants to go home, and that he thinks the Ravens and Browns might be discussing a deal.
“Cleveland has been on the up and up on this thing,” Cindrich said. “I did hear from a source there may have been discussions between the Ravens and Browns. . . . It would be the ideal situation to see if a trade could be worked out.”
