The Cleveland Browns have hired Rob Chudzinski as their new coach, a source told ESPN.

Chudzinski has spent the past two seasons as the Carolina Panthers' offensive coordinator. He also served two stints as an assistant with the Browns, the team he rooted for while growing up in Toledo, Ohio.

It looks like Chudzinski will hire Norv Turner as his offensive coordinator.

Solid move, Norv Turner is similar to Wade Phillips....both very good coordinators when able to concentrate on their respective sides of the ball, but in a little over their heads when asked to run the entire show as a head coach.

He hasn't had an NFL job since 2004, so unless he was Cutler's private coach or something, then no. Odd hire. I remember him from the late-90s, but he's an anachronism at this point. I mean, he worked with Bernie Kosar and Rich Gannon when he was with Minnesota, for chrissakes. Literally 20 years ago!

NCAA
He entered football coaching at the University of Miami in 1981 as a volunteer coach. In 1983 he was named quarterbacks coach. That year quarterback Bernie Kosar passed for 2,329 yards and Miami won the national championship. The next year Kosar completed 262 passes for 3,642 yards, both school records.
In 2005, he returned to college football as the North Carolina State Wolfpack offensive coordinator, guiding the Wolfpack to a win in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.

Trestman is one of those nerdy type coaches NFL players and analysts like to pick on.

I remember he was bagged on because he dropped out of coaching for a while and became a stock broker. He hasn't been with a team for very long that I've seen, seems to get kicked out after a year or two. Strikes me as a June Jones, Cam Cameron kind of guy.

I was in the car listening to Carmen, Jurko, Harry (the show after Waddle and Silvy) and they mentioned Tim Brown and also went on for an hour about what Jerry Rice said when Trestman was fired from the 49ers in 1997. They found an article on line where Rice piled on Trestman for making him run under routes and take hits all year.

I think Marshall is Trestman's type of WR, more of a YAC guy who can get open quickly and make a guy miss.

I doubt Cutler buys into him though...

I think Cutler has a couple years left on his contract, so who knows? There's some upheaval going on there, and I guess we'll see how Cutler does. He's supposed to be the franchise guy, but he disses everybody they try to bring in to work with him. I think Jeremy Bates is still there, his old pal from Denver, but maybe Cutler wanted Bates as the OC, so he'll disrespect the new guy Kromer. Who knows, it's a soap opera like a lot of NFL teams.

As much as I used to dislike the team back in the day when Denver was beating them in the AFC Championship Games, they deserve a winning team.

Those fans had to endure getting their team yanked out from under them in 1995 to Baltimore (and then had to watch them become good and win a Super Bowl), go without a team for 3 season, until the Browns were brought back in 1999....and they've stunk to the tune of:

73 wins and 151 losses.....that's a .325 winning percentage.

Averaged 5.2 wins a year since getting back into the league in 1999.

1 playoff appearance, which was a loss.

former Broncos GM Ted Sundquist, who interviewed for the job nine days ago, said Johnson told him it wasn't his idea. Sundquist said it was his impression that the trade was "forced" on Johnson and team president Neil Glat, who also participated in the interview.

Sundquist's description of the interview makes it sound as though Johnson was blaming former GM Mike Tannenbaum for the Tebow debacle; in a sense, Johnson did exactly that, firing Tannenbaum one day after the regular season ended.

The Jets hired former Seahawks executive John Idzik as their new general manager last week. He will be introduced at a news conference Thursday.

Johnson also said, according to Sundquist, that he eventually "jumped on board" with the Tebow idea, deferring to his football people.

"They realized it was divisive and hard on the locker room, and they wanted an exit strategy," Sundquist told ESPNNewYork.com, sharing the vibe he received from Johnson and Glat.

well it should be fun to watch anyway! As for Vick's health, he's just got to protect himself better. I think he will benefit for the pistol as it will keep the defense guessing on whether he is gonna pass or run. If he runs (and we know he will) he's got to get the yards he can and get down or get out of bounds.

This whole Chip Kelly thing has fail written all over it. I liked this quote:

"The Eagles have some fast players, no doubt, but everybody has fast players and the difference between the Eagles and the rest of the league isn’t that great," one head coach said. "The other thing is there were probably only four or five games where Oregon really got tested physically. When you have that kind of talent, you can put a game plan together in 15 minutes, practice for a day and be ready to roll up 50 points." http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nfl--eagles--chip-kelly-could-use-jimmy-johnson-s-tenure-with-cowboys-as-blueprint-220456153.html

Brigg's play is falling off. He can't rush the passer anymore, is still solid against the run but he is getting burned in coverage. Roach was Urlacker's backup but they needed a SAM so they moved him there. Roach should not be starting, they are hurting at LB. DJ would be a stop gap who should be cheaper than Urlacker and even if they signed him cheap they need the depth, he would be an excellent backup for Briggs. I don't see teams passing DJ over just because of the Wizz, hell Vick just got a new deal!

We shouldn't bend over backwards to turn Brady into a good samaritan, however. The extension, which is guaranteed, a source told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, gives Brady the security of at least $41 million that won't be ripped up by the Patriots at a later date.

As NFL.com's Albert Breer points out, the Patriots build their organization with two-year windows in mind. A Patriots source told Breer that the Brady extension creates "well over" $30 million in salary-cap space over the next two years and $20 million for 2013 alone.

The deal helps the Pats cap out but from what they are saying on TV in isn't near that amount that Breer is saying here, almost 13 million dollars difference.

While Tom Brady's contract extension lowers his average base salary and creates significant salary-cap space for the New England Patriots to surround him with a team capable of challenging for a Super Bowl, the quarterback also nearly doubled the guaranteed money owed him over the next five seasons, according to a league source who has reviewed the documents.



Until the agreement was revealed yesterday, Brady was under contract to the Patriots for two seasons with a contract containing $30 million in guarantees. Now he's under contract for five seasons with $57 million guaranteed for injury.

Brady's deal includes a $30 million signing bonus, which will be paid out over a period that extends to Feb. 15, 2015, according to a league source. Brady will earn $10 million of that signing bonus during the 2013 season, $5 million in a payment on Feb. 15, 2014, $10 million during the 2014 season, and $5 million on Feb. 15, 2015.

Brady's salaries for 2013 and 2014 are now $1 million and $2 million, respectively, and are fully guaranteed. His old deal was scheduled to pay him $9.75 million in base salary for each of those seasons.

Brady's salaries for 2015, 2016 and 2017 are $7 million, $8 million and $9 million, respectively, and are fully guaranteed for injury only, which means that if Brady is released because of an injury, he will still be paid that money. In the unlikely event that he were released due to skill considerations, he would not be paid that money.


Regarding Brady's salary cap charges, the breakdown is as follows:

2013: $13.8 million

2014: $14.8 million

2015: $13 million

2016: $14 million

2017: $15 million

The new contract also provides Brady more financial protection in the event he suffers a career-ending injury in 2013, increasing the money guaranteed to him from $25 million to $57 million. Brady has already suffered one catastrophic injury in his career, at the beginning of the 2008 season.

While the Patriots save $15 million in cap space, there is nothing preventing the team and Brady from restructuring this deal again if necessary before the quarterback retires
http://espn.go.com/boston/nfl/story/_/id/8990773/tom-brady-guarantees-nearly-doubled-deal-source

Do you really think a 36 year old QB should have 57 million dollars left in guaranteed money left on his contract?

Danny Amendola going to hit FA market

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000146007/article/danny-amendola-might-be-hitting-freeagent-market

This is the guy I would like to go after. He has missed some games but he is a big time WR who can make the common and spectacular catches. He is likely the 2013 version of Wes Welker if Welker wasn't also the 2013 version of Wes Welker...nevermind...

No sense to pay a WR big bucks in FA when this draft is loaded out the rear with guys in the first four rounds who are going to be exceptional NFL players and over a half dozen guys who would be murder in the slot. Even good outside receivers who would allow Decker to get inside and do magic as well. NO WAY TO A WR IN FA.

The only thing we need to do is not sign Matt Willis and kick Caldwells ass to the curb.

Willis can play ST's Is he up for a new contract? If not keep him, I agree with kicking Caldwell to the curb.

I don't want to see them pay Welker 8-10Mil but Amendola might come cheaper because of his injury history. The dude can ball. If we cut Caldwell, signed Amendola and then picked up a WR you like later then it is all good.

I guess you can keep Willis for ST. We have some PS guys who I think have more NFL potential than he does.

Demaryius, Decker, Stokely, ROOKIE, Willis/FA/PS guy.

I think we are gonna get another WR in the top 4 rounds. Sure hope we do. Great draft to do so. I think at least 15 will get drafted by round 4.

Average quarterbacks get hot too. It's just that after they're done being hot they go back to being average. The Ravens gave Flacco no time to prove that he wouldn't get off that streak next year by not franchising him. Terrible move. Imagine if Alex Smith had stayed the starter and got hot in the post season and got 20 million a year.

There was talk of the Ravens drafting a QB this year around the time where he put up the worst QBR in history against the Texans. Now I'm a hater but Cameron could have been holding him back from average to below average. We'll see next year but as of now I am looking forward to trolling Ravens fans while Flacco puts up another mediocre season.

^ Those moves by the Chiefs make their #1 pick interesting. Most people have been plugging in an OT under the assumption that Albert was leaving. With Albert back and Winston at RT, which way do they go? Edge-rusher isn't a need with Hali and Houston. They could go with Milliner to plug-in opposite Brandon Flowers. They could make Warmack the first guard to go #1 overall. Or they could go with Shariff Floyd, though he seems like a better 4-3 fit. Star Lotulelei is a better fit in the 3-4 if he gets his medical situation cleared up. To me, it's between those four guys.

I admit to being shocked that Bowe stayed. I figured he wanted to go to a winner. I will love watching him continue to be a non-factor and dropping balls in kFc for the rest of his career.

The fact is when your picking in the top3 you have to get an impact player. Grabbing a guard or even LT would be a waste with the over all pick.

substance wins championships, not style. a QB is to sell the fans on the future, but if you can't protect that future you end up with David Carr or Tim Couch.

OT's taken in the top 5 or so are generally safe picks who pan out. not all become all pro's but they tend to give you more bang for the buck than the high impact players they tend to glorify in the top 5.

Bowe has always been a playmaking WR. He had drop problems up until 2010 when he finally became consistent.

The only time he ever had good QB play in his career he put up 15 TD's. Put him with a top 10 QB like Manning and he'll give you at least 12 TD's and 1,2500 yards.

As for Albert, he passed a physical after the season ended and had nothing wrong with his back.

That was 3 years ago, have you seen his stats since?

NFL Live had a graphic up Monday that said he 15 TD's in 2010, then 5 in 2011 and 3 last year. The entire team had only 8 passing TD's last year.

I was waiting for FL or kFcdud to point that out, I was going to point out that Cassell was the QB in 2010.

Brady Quinn has no business being in the NFL, they got worse after he came in, They had a better chance to win with Cassel if he didn't turn it over. I bet Cassel goes somewhere else and is serviceable.

Yup. The Chiefs had the worst QB situation last year and it wasn't close.

Literally the exact same QB situation got him over 1400 and 8 TDs the year prior.

The playcalling was completely atrocious and there was ZERO effort to get him the ball in space.

they had like 4-5 starting QB's this season, injuries, suckage and more suckage killed the rhythm. but it was mostly Kolb and Skelton last season(i think Max Hall played in a game or two but he retired).

you had two QB's alone that produced 7 more INT's than TD's this season in Lindley and Skelton.

I'm thinking they are going to get a QB at some point to replace him after he develops. Unfortunately Alex Smith is the best option for a QB this year.

I think Pioli would have destroyed everything this year. He would have lost all these guys.

I'm interested to see what Reid can do with Smith, though I'm not happy at all with what we're giving up to get him.

Dorsey spoke today and indicated that they have indeed spoken to teams about trading down. Have to wonder if they'll get a quality pick from that trade.

it was a bad fit in Philly and value wise even though Revis is clearly the better overall player it makes more sense to get Nnamdi since you don't have to deal away any players, picks or sacrifice significant cap space to get him.

if Revis was going for multiple 2nds and some other picks i'd be fine with it.
but a 1st in such a deep draft for areas of need that this team has is insane.
we have many holes to fill and most of the solution has to come through the draft process.

Kansas City just saved themselves a crap ton of money getting rid of Winston and reducing Jackson's contract. I believe they had 30-35 million before tagging Albert, re-signing Bowe and Colquitt. They just recouped pretty much all that with two swift kicks. They could add a lot of talent in the off-season. Scary.

They're about to add more when Cassel get's cut next week. Cassel was due $7.25 million next year.

More money to spend!

Eagles might release DRC also. Younger, good size, athletic. For the right price do you see if you can salvage him? Showed a lot of promise back with the Cards.

if they're that damn dumb then i'd definitely sign him and let him earn some money on incentives. cheaper than Revis or Nnamdi and more of a long term benefit if he rebounds.

Peyton Hillis - RB - Chiefs

The Boston Herald mentions free agents Peyton Hillis and Michael Turner as backup running back options for the Patriots.
Both Hillis and Turner are not expected to garner much interest early on in free agency, but beat writer Jeff Howe thinks they could be nice goal-line backs for New England if the price is right. The Patriots have Brandon Bolden as a bigger back behind Stevan Ridley, but his production was sporadic as a rookie.

NFL | Austin Collie might not be 100 percent until October
Wed, 06 Mar 2013 19:48:22 -0800

Free-agent WR Austin Collie (knee) is doing plenty of pool work, leg weight work, and some light running in his rehab from knee surgery. His goal is to be 100 percent ready by the time he reports to training camp for his new team, although it might take until October or so until he is full speed again.

MIAMI -- Coming off his best season, Brian Hartline wanted to stay put.

The veteran receiver signed a five-year deal Friday for nearly $31 million to remain with the Miami Dolphins, his agent said. The contract includes $12.5 million guaranteed, agent Drew Rosenhaus said.

That was a good deal for Miami. Hartline produced big time and was a good target for Tannehill. If they go after Mike Wallace or another guy and draft a dude in the 2-4 round with all their picks, they will be LOADED.

I thought FA didn't start until Tuesday or Wednesday?

Oh well, kFc getting a head start on signing busts and hasbeens on their way to Dream Team 2.0.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reports, citing a source close to the player, that Dunta Robinson has reached an agreement with the Chiefs on a three-year deal. The former Falcons defensive back was released by Atlanta earlier this month in a cap-saving move that slashed $9 million off the books. The Falcons also got rid of a largely disappointing performer.

Nope if you're cut you can sign anywhere at any time.

And they are still going after Sean Smith according to reports.

Looks like Dunta is going to be the nickel.

I'm just going by what I read here.

The Kansas City Chiefs made a free agent signing late Friday night when they locked up former Atlanta Falcons CB Dunta Robinson to a three-year contract.

But not only did the Chiefs find themselves a corner that could potentially start opposite CB Brandon Flowers, they also prevented Robinson from lining up opposite Dwayne Bowe.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Robinson met with the Denver Broncos earlier in the day before deciding to sign with the Chiefs.

What's interesting is we might have signed Robinson to play safety. hmmm...

Yeah I'm honestly surprised that we want another corner. I thought we were good with Champ, Carter, Harris, and Bolden. But I guess you can never have enough corners, but I hope if we do get another CB he's fast enough to check speedy receivers.

As far as Robinson, hes awful. I'd be curious as to why Rev would want him..?

Bmore Manning
03-09-2013, 07:58 AM
Terrible is a gross exaggeration. He's certainly not a top player, but he knows how to play the spot and has a solid skillset. Set him in more zones like KC will and away from the man exposure he got in Atlanta, and it's absolutely a solid value signing.

He certainly won't beat out Flowers, and I have doubts he'll beat Arenas on the outside, but he'll be a solid nickel if they don't throw him at safety.

No he's terrible, he was the biggest liability in their secondary.

Yes he's probably better in some zones or inside.. We need an outside CB, Harris is great inside.

...Do we have an eye roll smiley?

Btw: opposing QBs had the LOWEST QB rating in the league targeting Peterson. And not by a small margin. Will be interesting to see how next season plays out with Revis' return.

I really like PP, but I like Sherman slightly more as a cover corner where we stand today.. But what makes PP so special is not only is he a great cover corner, he's dynamic with the ball in his hands! I also think PP has more upside in the future because of his crazy athleticism. Don't think I don't like him, he's a good player to have a bromance on, as I'm sure you would agree with me having one on PM being justified.

I think Carter was ok. His interceptions were on miss thrown balls. I think his youth and lack of awareness and discipline really show.
