Banner says Browns have “no intention” of making additional trades

With the Browns moving arguably their best offensive player to Indy, the question becomes whether other trades will be made.

Browns CEO Joe Banner tells PFT that the Browns have “no intention of making any additional trades.”

It’s hardly a slamming of the door.  In February, Vikings G.M. Rick Spielman emphasized that his team had “no intent” of trading receiver Percy Harvin.  And then they did.

It would be prudent, then, to keep an eye on the possibility of teams making offers that the Browns would have a hard time refusing, especially if losses mount over the next five weeks — and if contending teams suffer injuries at positions where the Browns have players that could fill those needs.

  1. As an Eagles fan fluent in Reid / Banner speak this means that anyone & everything is up for grabs including the sconces on the stadium. Crazy Joe’s prices are INSANE!

  2. Thank god the Browns and Jets have taken over the mantel of dispair.

    This was really one of the dumbest trades the NFL has ever seen. The browns must have been really down on this kid after what they gave up to get him. Really a head scratcher to really only get a late first rounder, I think the colts would have done more. A first 3rd and a 7th made total sense.

    Anyway, just glad the Raiders are off the troll radar.

    Same Banner. Different zip code. I feel your pain Cleveland.

    5 NFC title games and a Super Bowl appearance. I think Browns fans will sign up for that kind of “pain” every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

    Nobody currently working for the Browns, or their current owner, had anything to do with what the franchise gave up to get him.

    They need a franchise QB, Richardson was giving production you could get from an undrafted free agent, and someone was desperate enough to give them the extra pick they will need to ensure they can move up next year and get one of the top QBs available.

    I don’t understand what people don’t understand about this trade.

  5. I don’t see what the big deal is. A new regime is in town and they are in rebuild mode. There’s nothing wrong with that.

  6. I’m a Browns fan and I was happy to see the trade. We over drafted TRich in my opinion. A RB 3rd overall is high, unless by chance they turn in to AP which TRich is not. We got a first round pick for him NOW, which we would not have got if we waited to trade him after the season. I’m not a huge fan of the front office but I agree with them on this one. If they trade Gordon however, I’ll be upset.
