Isaiah Crowell reportedly draws interest from three teams

Browns running back Isaiah Crowell carries a second-round restricted free agency tender. He’s nevertheless drawing interest.

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports that three teams have “inquired about” Crowell. It’s unclear whether those inquiries were directed to Crowell or to the Browns.

If another team signs Crowell to an offer sheet and if the Browns choose not to match it, they’d get a second-round pick as compensation. That seems to be a lot to give up for a running back, however. Any team interested in Crowell at that level should just draft a running back in round two; they’d then have the player at a reasonable rate for four years.

The Browns could trade Crowell for less than a second-round pick, after Crowell signs the $2.81 million tender.

Undrafted in 2014, Crowell had a career-high 952 rushing yards last year, with seven touchdowns. He added 319 receiving yards.

    Knowing Sashi and the boys, they’ll let him walk.

    He’s not worth a second round pick and the Browns don’t need another second round pick.

    Willing to bet one of them is Seattle, they are desperate to get the ball out of Wilson’s hands.

    If I’m the Raiders, packers or giants I give up the 2nd round pick for this guy

    Sashi learned GMing from Connected Franchise mode.

    I do the same thing when I play as the Browns.

    I’ll take him on the Niners to backup Hyde but no way a 2nd round pick. 4th round pick, sure

    I bet the skins are one of those teams. Washington was lucky to pull out that win last year, Crowell was a monster that game.

    Ugggh. I want him back. Dude barely EVER fumbles. And now the line is good and shored up…

    He’s really good. Would have been 10 times better stats with a better team.

    Almost 1,000 rushing yards…with the Browns? Not bad…
