Ahtyba Rubin’s agent says Rubin’s staying in Cleveland


Late last week, PFT reported that defensive end Ahtyba Rubin could join linebacker D’Qwell Jackson on the Browns’ discard pile as the team marked its latest regime change by clearing out some well-paid players.

Any teams that might have been contemplating adding Rubin to their defensive line might want to make sure they have backup plans in place, however. Rubin’s agent Alan Herman told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that Rubin isn’t about to hit the chopping block.

“I can assure Ahtyba is fine,” Herman said. “All the conversations have been positive and everybody’s happy to have him on the team.”

Herman also said that he spoke to Browns officials at the combine and that there are no planned modifications to Rubin’s contract. Rubin is set to make $6.6 million in 2014, which is the final year of his contract. If the Browns are interested in keeping Rubin and lowering his cap hit, they could extend his deal rather than ask for a pay cut or cut him loose.

    I can understand moving toward the exit door in Cleveland, but not away from it (unless he is overpaid and knows it)

    This might be the news that seals the deal for Monroe to sign in Baltimore.

    Good. I don’t want to see too many changes on defense. Just the obvious weak spots.

    Rubin is a heck of a player. After being drafted in the 6th round he has always been a steady player even over some of our 1st and2rd picks. I’m glad rubin is staying put in the cle.!

    Guys a stud. As a raider fan I was happy to hear the initial report of him being possibly cut. Dangit!
