The Jags were starting two 1st round OTs until they traded Eugene Monroe. Now Joeckel is their LT, and I have no idea who their RT is.

Well, they lost Joeckel to injury, but your point still stands.

When does Duane Brown's contract expire?

You could cut him after the 2015 season for only a 2.5m cap hit, or let him play through 2016 and cut him for free.

Do you expect his cap hit/salary to be higher on his next contract?

In other words, is feasible for us to have both he and a #1 overall OT on the roster going forward?

The MMQB's Peter King hears Cleveland's front office "really likes" Texas A&M redshirt sophomore QB Johnny Manziel.

"...if they kept Chudzinski, they’d be asking him to develop the next quarterback, along with offensive coordinator Norv Turner," King writes. "What if there was a disconnect between the quarterback the front office wanted (I hear Cleveland really likes Johnny Manziel, who is not the Aikmanish pocket passer more to Turner’s liking..." It has been reported for quite some time that the Browns preferred the 2014 class over the 2013 class and have been doing plenty of homework on the available quarterbacks. We expect them to select one.

I don't think it's been any secret that Lombardi loves Manziel and wants to draft him to Cleveland.

Lombardi is a puppet, you don't see him at pressers, he doesn't talk, it has always been the Haslam & Banner show.

Cleveland is a graveyard for promising QBs.
Hope JFF doesn't get drafted to that dumpster fire franchise.

Nope. He's 28 now, and will be about 31 by the time he's up for a new deal. Only problem is that the deal is heavily backloaded, which means he will need to be cut, or negotiate an extension in the future. He will have a lot of leverage over the team in those discussions if he's still playing at a high level. It could turn into another AJ type deal, where we just keep extending and restructuring him because the cap will require that.

Yeah, it's feasible to have a 1st round RT. It's not a good use of salary cap IMO, but it doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things. We are going to use about the same amount of money on whomever we pick. Having ~14m a year dedicated to the OT spots seems like a bit much to me.

As we close in on Manziel's college finale I'm reminded of his Cotton Bowl effort last yr. Best individual performance Ive ever seen.

Awesome drive by Manziel.

They showed him on the sideline instructing his team how important the next drive is. He gets on the field, Four plays later (three beautiful passes) & he's doing the money dance.

Wow!!

They're playing a 3 man front, with no one over the tackles. The strongside completely uncovered.


Duke isn't going to punt on 4th down.

Didn't really mean it that way, just meant that Duke is not overrated as was presented by many people around the country.
