Browns use second-round tender on Isaiah Crowell

Teams with impending restricted free agents have a couple of decisions to make in the near future.

They have to decide whether to tender those players a contract for the current season and, if they do, they have to decide what level of tender to use. The Browns have made those calls on running back Isaiah Crowell.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Browns have extended a second-round tender to Crowell. That means he’s in line to make $2.81 million and that a team interested in signing him away would have to give up a second-round pick for the right to do so.

Crowell led the Browns with a career-high 952 rushing yards last season. Rapoport adds that the two sides plan to continue talking about a longer deal that would set Crowell up for an extended stay in Cleveland.

    That seems kind of high. OK, a lot high.

    Tampa Bay
    But they may just use that pick on a younger back even though he is still young

    Bargain for the Browns. But no team will give up a 2nd rd pick for him. Get comfortable in Cleveland Isaiah.

    Not really. For the first either four or five weeks of the season, the Browns had the top rushing offense in the NFL and Crow was on a tear. Once we sustained several injuries on our offensive line, the running game suffered immensely.

    Crow is a very solid running back and is capable of big games (he had a few this season) – $2.81 million seems like a reasonable rate to me.

    “The Crow” would look damn good on the Seahawks!
