One-for-two trade makes for a nervous morning in Cleveland

The Browns have not yet officially announced the trade of receiver Braylon Edwards to the Jets.

The reason?  They’re getting two players from the Jets in exchange for Edwards.

And this means that the Browns need to make another roster move.

And this means that someone probably will be getting cut.  (The only other alternative would be to place a player on injured reserve.)

So stay tuned.  Someone will possibly be getting fired in Cleveland today.  And, frankly, given the way things have been going, we’re wondering whether it’s an appropriate occasion for the cork-popping sound effect that ESPN’s Chris Berman has been using lately.

  1. Can we cut Mangini to open up a roster spot…..or should I say 2 roster spots.(Its funny cuz hes FAT…..And stupid.)

  2. Going to make add/drops interesting for fantasy owners, too.
    Braylon’s only 84% owned in Yahoo leagues.

  3. I forgot about Cundiff.
    Normally, this trade would be good, but with Clevelands inability to draft talent outside of Joe Thomas, it scares me.

  4. The only way to get out of clevland is to pick a fight with a cavs players entourage?
    I heard Brady Quim is going to fight shaq

  5. Quinn vs. Shaq….now THAT would be worth the $100 ticket!
    Edwards vs. the NY media should be an interesting under card event.

  6. Hmmm might Quinn be next? Looks like Mangini has evaluated the Browns roster and does not like what he sees. Mangini is trading some questionable high profile, high level talent for solid mid-tier talent and draft picks. Remaking the Browns in his own image.
    The Browns aren’t going anywhere this year. So perhaps the strategy will be worth the risk. I guess we will know in a year or two.
    To pull off a move like this does make me think that Mangini must have the confidence of Lerner
    The Last Word

  7. Cleveland should trade away Derick Anderson for a draft pick.
    Smart rebuilding type move. Then nobody gets cut.

  8. I’m sure that Cleveland can find someone with that fifth round pick to come in and routinely drop passes, be a cancer in the locker room, and pick fights with the King’s entourage. If you don’t have to run fast, I’d be happy to go do that for a year!

  9. Edwards is big, strong and fast……but he has hands of stone and is immature. I’m pissed that they gave the Browns so much for a guy like this. Very sorry to see Stuckey go, he has tremedous upside and was still developing. The Browns got the better end of this deal.
    I have a very uneasy feeling about this trade.

  10. Hey Mangenious i have a great idea call ted thompson and offer Joe Thomas for Aaron Kampman and a #2
    or just Cut Joe Thomas. (hey i tried)
