Browns select Justin Gilbert after trade


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) With the No. 8 pick in the NFL Draft, the Browns traded up and selected defensive back Justin Gilbert from Oklahoma State.

The Browns swapped first-round choices with the Vikings. In addition to receiving the Browns' No. 9 selection, the Vikings now have Cleveland's 2014 fifth-round pick (145th overall).

Gilbert is 6-foot, 202 pounds, and he ran a 4.31 40-yard dash. He will likely start opposite Joe Haden, and the Browns defense and Browns DST now have a formidable defensive backfield. 

Gilbert will also provide the Browns help in the return game. In 2013, Gilbert had six interceptions, including two for touchdowns, and a 100-yard kickoff return.


Joe Haden's extension 'imminent'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) A contract extension for Browns No. 1 cornerback Joe Haden is "imminent," reports ESPNCleveland.com. Haden is entering the final year of his contract and could command $12 million annually in a new deal.

Browns release eight-year vet D'Qwell Jackson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) The Browns released inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, the longest-tenured member of the team. Cleveland cut Jackson rather than pay him a $4.1 million roster bonus due March 15.

“We had positive discussion with D’Qwell and his agent over the last several days, and we came to the mutual agreement to go in different directions," general manager Ray Farmer said. "D’Qwell is the epitome of class, leadership and professionalism. Every day of his NFL career, D’Qwell has been a solid representative of the Browns and the city of Cleveland, both between the lines on Sundays and off the field in our area community."


Browns facing big decision on D'Qwell Jackson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) New Browns general manager Ray Farmer must decide by March 11 whether to keep inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson and pay him a $4 million roster bonus or release him. Jackson, 30, made 139 tackles last season.

If the Browns retain Jackson, he'll count $9.4 million against the cap in 2014.


Barkevious Mingo asked to bulk up


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) New Browns coach Mike Pettine wants outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo (6-4, 241) to gain weight and says he believes he can get last year's No. 6 overall pick to play like it, reports the Akron Beacon Journal. Mingo had 42 tackles and five sacks as a rookie.

Report: Browns might franchise T.J. Ward


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) The Browns might be considering using the franchise tag on safety T.J. Ward, reports ESPN. Ward, 27, is an impending free agent who had 112 tackles, two interceptions and 1.5 sacks this season.

James Ihedigbo: Terrell Suggs might be fit in Cleveland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Ravens safety James Ihedigbo has speculated that teammate Terrell Suggs could reunite with fellow outside linebacker Paul Kruger with the Browns next season.

Suggs' contract expires after next season. He is due to earn $7.8 million in 2014 and would represent a $12.4 million cap hit for his team. His performance down the stretch this season is a concern, leading to speculation that he could be cut to save the team money.

Ihedigbo believes defensive-minded Browns coach Mike Pettine, who served as a Ravens defensive coach from 2002 to 2008, will seek to snap up Suggs.

"You gotta think Mike Pettine got the head-coaching job in Cleveland," he told the team website "Are they going to come in and try to get Terrell Suggs, and put him right opposite Paul Kruger like he was before?"

The Browns are still looking to ramp up their outside pass rush. Kruger and rookie Barkevious Mingo proved disappointing in 2013. But Suggs also struggled, managing just two sacks in the last eight games after posting eight in the first eight games.


T.J. Ward talks like guy remaining with Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2014) Pro Bowl strong safety T.J. Ward will be a free agent if the Browns don't sign him long-term or slap the franchise tag on him. But he didn't sound like he was moving on when asked Thursday about the hiring of head coach Mike Pettine.

"It's just good to know who we're working with now," he told the team website. "The sooner, the better, so we can get to work and start with a new system. I'm excited and eager to get ready. We've got a good nucleus of players, and I'm just ready to get to work.

"Defensive-minded coaches always have a special place with me being a defensive guy, but I'm very excited to meet him and get going."

Ward is coming off his healthiest and finest season. He registered 112 tackles, two interceptions and his first career pick-six.


Browns land two on All-Pro first team


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) The Browns have landed two first-teamers on the Associated Press All-Pro team despite their 4-12 record. Tackle Joe Thomas and wide receiver Josh Gordon both earned spots. Cornerback Joe Haden, safety T.J. Ward and center Alex Mack are all second-teamers.

Browns force two turnovers in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Browns DST unit forced two turnovers in Week 17 against the Steelers, but got little help from the offense in a 20-7 loss.

The Browns intercepted Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger twice in the game, and held the offense to just 292 total yards on 61 plays. The offense was unable to take advantage of those turnovers, leaving the defense on the field longer than needed. The Browns pass rush was largely nonexistent in the game as well, sacking Roethlisberger just once.

The defense was the best unit for the Browns this season, though short fields often proved too much to overcome. This is a young, talented unit, but probably will enter next season as a low-end Fantasy option.  


Joe Haden sidelined for finale


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Browns will be without arguably their best defensive player in Week 17, as defensive back Joe Haden will not play against the Steelers due to a hip injury. Haden was considered questionable, but was not among the team's active players for kickoff.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ward (illness) returned after his Thursday absence. Their status for Sunday will be clarified on the Friday injury report.

Illness sidelined T.J. Ward on Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

T.J. Ward red-lighted for Thursday session


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Browns strong safety T.J. Ward appeared on the injury report Wednesday with a shoulder injury and did not appear in practice on Thursday. The team might be just cautious. Ward was probable with the same ailment last week before suiting up Sunday against the Jets.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ray Horton: Barkevious Mingo must get stronger, more learned


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton suggested Thursday that disappointing rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo put in plenty of time in the offseason in the weight room and studying the playbook, the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram has reported.

The 240-pound Mingo has shown flashes of brilliance, but has too often disappeared. He has just two sacks since recording three in his first three games. Critics believe he needs to develop a wider variety of pass-rushing moves and gain strength.


Joe Haden unhappy with status of recovery from hip injury


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Haden returned to practice last Friday to play Sunday against the Jets, but it could be decided to shut him down against the Steelers.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

(12/22/2013) Every year, as losses pile up for the Browns, the tackles pile up for linebacker D'Qwell Jackson. Jackson rolled merrily along for his terrible team yet again Sunday with a game-high 11 tackles and a pass defensed. He leads the Browns with 131 tackles this season.
