Kenny Britt - WRPosted 3/16/17 7:22pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Kenny Britt said he believes the quarterback situation will be straightened out. 'They said they are going to get the problem fixed, and I believe that they will,' Britt said. 'Regardless of who they have under center, it is my job to make him look good.'
Huddle Up: With Terrelle Pryor out of the picture, Britt should be Cleveland's most dependable receiver in 2017. Consider him a WR3 candidate.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 3/13/17 12:17pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has received trade interest from at least three teams, according to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler. The Browns placed a second-round tender on their restricted free agent.
Huddle Up: Crowell was one of the very few bright spots for the Browns last season, totaling nearly 1,200 yards and seven touchdowns. If he stays with the Browns, Crowell has low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 potential despite splitting time with Duke Johnson.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 3/12/17 10:05am ET
Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler 'reacted negatively' to head coach Bill O'Brien's decision to turn to him in Week 17 after starter Tom Savage was injured in the second quarter of a loss to the Tennessee Titans. An argument reportedly ensued and the two men eventually engaged in a 'physical confrontation that got ugly', according to a source.
Huddle Up: If all the details of this report are true, it would help explain why the Texans showed no interest in giving Osweiler another chance to prove himself in 2017 after a disastrous first season. Osweiler will likely be released soon if the Browns can't find a trade partner, while Houston will almost certainly spend a high draft pick on fixing their quarterback situation, even if it adds Tony Romo at some point.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 3/10/17 8:56am ET
Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Browns) left his visit with the Washington Redskins Friday, March 10, without a deal.
Huddle Up: Pryor is a solid WR3 in fantasy after carving his niche last season.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 3/10/17 9:43am ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III was released by the team Friday, March 10.
Huddle Up: Griffin was set to receive a $750,000 roster bonus Saturday, so this was a no-brainer for the Browns. Based on his recent play and poor track record for staying healthy, RG3 could be waiting a while before he gets another opportunity in the NFL.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 3/10/17 12:57pm ET
Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Browns) agreed to terms on a one-year, $8 million contract with the Washington Redskins on Friday, March 10.
Huddle Up: Pryor immediately moves to the head of the line in Washington's receiving corps and helps the Redskins bounce back from losing Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson on the first day of free agency. Even a disgruntled Kirk Cousins represents a huge upgrade over the parade of different quarterbacks Cleveland marched out last season. Pryor should have no problem performing at a WR2 level in fantasy in 2017.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 3/9/17 12:48pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is expected to be released after Cleveland acquired QB Brock Osweiler.
Huddle Up: RG3 had a glimmer of hope if he were to have stayed in Cleveland, but all of that can be forgotten. He may struggle to find a roster spot in 2017 and shouldn't be on anyone's radar at this time.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 3/9/17 1:35pm ET
Free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Browns) is scheduled to visit with the Washington Redskins in the near future.
Huddle Up: The Redskins have lost DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon this offseason, so Pryor could be the team's No. 1 receiver if he joins the Redskins. Pryor should be a starter no matter where he signs and should be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 3/6/17 11:54am ET
Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor has drawn interest from the New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers, Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles, according to sources. Other teams are expected to show interest, too. Pryor is an offseason priority for the Browns, but both sides are far apart in negotiations, according to The Cleveland Plain-Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.
Huddle Up: Pryor will be one of the most coveted, and possibly the most coveted, free-agent wide receivers this year. He has already proven he can produce solid numbers no matter who is throwing the ball to him after a couple of years with the Browns already. His fantasy value will almost assuredly increase if he's playing in a different uniform. He's firmly in WR2 territory heading into 2017.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 3/6/17 3:27pm ET
Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor is receiving interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Pryor will be one of the more popular players available if he hits the free-agent market and probably will be too expensive for the Steelers to sign. Pryor likely will be a starting receiver no matter where he signs and should be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 3/6/17 10:53pm ET
Updating a previous report, the Pittsburgh Steelers are actually not interested in signing Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor due to the fact he would likely cost more than $10 million annually.
Huddle Up: Pryor might not be able to draw that kind of money from the Steelers, but after registering 77 catches for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns in his first year as a receiver this past season, he can probably garner the amount he desires elsewhere. Depending on where he lands, the 27-year-old figures to enter the next campaign with WR2 potential, especially after dazzling on a Cleveland team that featured poor quarterback play in 2016.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 3/5/17 7:33pm ET
Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor is expected to land a deal worth $10-$12 million per year, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: Pryor is a gifted athlete, and he emerged as Cleveland best receiver last year. As long as he lands with a receiver-needy team, he should land in the WR2 range in 2017.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 3/4/17 10:52am ET
Impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor (Browns) will reportedly test the free-agent market after extension talks with the Cleveland Browns stalled in recent days.
Huddle Up: If Pryor hits the market, he will vie with Alshon Jeffery as the most sought-after receiver available in free agency. The Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Rams figure to be among the most interested suitors, and all three teams would allow him to continue working at the same WR2 level he reached last year in fantasy, if not flirt with WR1 status.
Josh Gordon - WRPosted 3/1/17 7:43am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is applying for reinstatement Wednesday, March 1.
Huddle Up: Gordon hasn't played since 2014, and he's merely just a player to take at the end of the draft when all of your depth is secured.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 3/1/17 9:08am ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III is expected to take part in the April offseason program, according to director of football operations Sashi Brown. Brown wouldn't commit to the $750,000 bonus Griffin is in line for in March.
Huddle Up: RG III is a mediocre QB2 in fantasy realms, but he showed some flashes with little to work with. He could be a matchup play in DFS.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 3/1/17 10:51am ET
Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor is a priority for the Browns this offseason, but executive vice president Sashi Brown said the team will not panic if he is not on their roster. The Browns are expected to talk with Pryor's representatives at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Huddle Up: Pryor would be one of the better receivers available if he hits the free-agent market, but the Browns still have about a week to work on a deal with him. He recorded 1,007 yards and four touchdowns in 2016 and probably will be a starter no matter where he plays next season. Pryor probably should be considered a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 2/28/17 8:06am ET
Cleveland Browns restricted free-agent RB Isaiah Crowell received a second-round tender Tuesday, Feb. 28, worth $2.81 million. The two sides are working on an extension.
Huddle Up: Crowell had his best season as a pro in 2016 with 952 rushing yards (4.8 yards per carry) seven touchdowns, 40 catches and 319 receiving yards. He's a solid RB2 in fantasy entering 2017 unless the team lands a major piece to usurp him.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 2/27/17 12:31pm ET
Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor is not expected to be given the franchise tag before the franchise tag deadline Wednesday, March 1. The Browns are hoping to sign Pryor to a long-term contract before free agency begins. Pryor has already said he would like to stay with the Browns.
Huddle Up: Pryor was one of the few bright spots for the Browns last year, pacing the team with 77 catches, 1,007 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns. His age, size and athleticism, not to mention his running ability, make him one of the better young receivers in the NFL. Pryor is a WR2 option heading into 2017 fantasy drafts.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 2/24/17 6:57am ET
Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor could be atop the Buffalo Bills' wish list in free agency.
Huddle Up: Pryor has shown a willingness to re-sign with the Browns after a 77-1,007-4 season. Pryor is a low-end WR3 but would have a higher ceiling with an established quarterback.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 2/24/17 4:09pm ET
Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor could receive the transition tag this offseason. The two sides are trying to work out a long-term deal, but the team has not given Pryor an indication on what they will decide.
Huddle Up: Pryor wants to stay with the Browns, so there is a good chance he will sign a new deal with the team. He played well in 2016 but did have to play with multiple quarterbacks during the season because of injuries. Pryor will be the No. 1 receiver for the Browns next season and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on the Browns' quarterback situation.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 2/18/17 2:25pm ET
The Cleveland Browns do not plan on placing the franchise tag on impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor, according to a source. The team would still like to sign Pryor to a long-term deal.
Huddle Up: The Browns have a lot of salary cap space available, so they should be able to give Pryor a lucrative contract this offseason. Pryor has posted solid numbers over the last two season and can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next season.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 2/13/17 3:34pm ET
The Cleveland Browns are scheduled to talk with the agent for impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor this week.
Huddle Up: Pryor is one of the better receivers that will be a free agent this offseason, but the Browns could place the franchise tag on Pryor if they are not able to reach a long-term agreement with him. He could be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners depending on the Browns quarterback situation.
Josh McCown - QBPosted 2/10/17 7:53pm ET
New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo would provide a 'bright' future at the quarterback spot for the Cleveland Browns, according to free-agent QB Josh McCown. 'I've seen him on tape because we had a common opponent in Miami,'' McCown said. 'He made some high level throws and did some things that would get you excited about his ability to maybe carry a franchise.'
Huddle Up: Garoppolo's is an intriguing, albeit unproven, quarterback option, but Cleveland wouldn't be an ideal destination as far as his fantasy value is concerned.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 1/23/17 3:57pm ET
Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor likely will receive the franchise tag this offseason after the Browns were able to sign LB Jamie Collins to a contract extension.
Huddle Up: Pryor probably would receive interest from multiple teams if he were to hit the free-agent market but would be back with the Browns if he receives the franchise tag. He likely will be a starter no matter where he plays in 2017 and can be considered aa No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Isaiah Crowell - RBPosted 1/20/17 12:53pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has reached a 'stalemate' with the team regarding talks for a contract extension. The two sides were previously in 'heavy talks' to get a deal done.
Huddle Up: Crowell might be better off staying in Cleveland, where he has established himself as a fine starting running back three years into his NFL career. In fact, the 24-year-old has increased his rushing total in each season, while accumulating 19 touchdowns on the ground over that span. As long as his situation with the Browns remains consistent, he can continue to be a solid RB2 fantasy option in 2017.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 1/2/17 8:14am ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) will have surgery on the torn ligament in his finger Wednesday, Jan. 4.
Huddle Up: Pryor broke out with a 77-1,007-4 season, but there are questions as to whether he can duplicate them. A lot will depend on what the Browns do in free agency and the draft. Pryor will be a risky WR3 option in next year's drafts.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 1/1/17 2:52pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III threw for 232 yards and had two touchdowns and an interception in a 27-24 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Whether the Browns go in another direction at quarterback remains to be seen. They are unlikely to send Terrelle Pryor back to QB because Pryor had over 1,000 receiving yards in 2016. Griffin could get another chance, unless the Browns select a QB in the draft and put him to use immediately.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/31/16 4:55pm ET
Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III has roughly a 50 percent chance at returning as the starter for the team in 2017, according to ESPNCleveland's Tony Grossi.
Huddle Up: The upcoming draft lacks a top-flight prospect at the position, while the top free-agent quarterbacks figure to be players such as Tyrod Taylor and Mike Glennon. The Browns are reportedly interested in trading for New England Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo as well. It could be argued any or all the alternatives may be better than Griffin, who has shown next to nothing while also struggling to stay healthy yet again.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 12/29/16 6:43pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (finger) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.
Huddle Up: Pryor's production has disappeared since Robert Griffin III has returned, and with Griffin in line to start in Week 17, Pryor should be avoided.
Duke Johnson - RBPosted 12/26/16 9:37am ET
Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (ankle) played sporadically in Week 16 against the San Diego Chargers, shuttling in and out of the game due to an ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Johnson has been an acceptable flex play in PPR leagues for most of this year, but with the Browns getting their first win last week and the scatback clearly not 100 percent, don't expect to see him playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17. Cleveland would likely turn to George Atkinson III and Darius Jackson to fill the void left behind by Johnson if he sits out.
