they could have a pretty good offense next year assuming that Kellen Winslow actually plays and doesn't get injured.

I think the Browns will be in great shape with the addition of these 2 guys...Now I just hope we can steal Bryant from them, or maybe get Givens, because I dont see them getting Schaffer, Bentley and Givens

Browns | Contract update: L. Bentley
Sat, 11 Mar 2006 10:48:13 -0800

Sean Jensen, of the Pioneer Press, reports Cleveland Browns OL LeCharles Bentley's new deal with the Cleveland Browns is a six-year, $36 million contract. Bentley had serious talks with the Philadelphia Eagles, but the Browns put the heat on him, offering a contract that includes $12.5 million in guaranteed money up front and averages $6 million per year.
$36 million. Sounds good to me.

Browns | Team agrees in principle with Shaffer
Sat, 11 Mar 2006 09:55:56 -0800

Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports the Cleveland Browns have agreed in principle to a contract with free agent OT Kevin Shaffer (Falcons). While details need to be worked out on Shaffer's contract, it will be a seven-year deal worth more than $5 million a year.
He didn't do bad either.

I can understand them gambling on making some of the same players more productive, but there are some gaping holes such as FS, TE and DE where they better have some plan.

That's a ton for any center or guard, but then the Browns have the pockets/cap space.
I dunno....wonder if that compensation amount is a record for a FA center or guard ?

Kampman I can understand losing out on because he resigned with the Packers--did he even talk to anyone else? Is Matt Schobel an improvement on Rivers/Bruener?

Marlon McCree is still out there and can play FS along with Chris Hope. I would rather see moderate contracts to McCree, Putzier and Antonio Bryant than a Wade signing of Weaver who while capable doesn't seem to be a big enough difference from Walker playing DE and they are going to have to pay Walker to leave.

I would have liked to have either of those guys to come to the Texans, especially Bentley, but that's a lot more money than I was willing to give up for either. $6 million a year for a OG/C is a lot of money and surely one of the highest 2-3 paid in the league. We already drastically overpaid for Todd Wade a couple years ago and I believe he is currently the 2nd highest paid RT in the league behind Robert Gallery, so I would not have wanted to give a huge contract out for another OT. I'm hoping Wade will be cut after the June 1st deadline, but still Shaffer is not worth another $6 million a year to me.

Walker is supposed to be getting released after June 1 so his cap hit will be spread out over two years, and if I'm not mistaken that will end up saving us $2.25-2.5 million against the cap in 2006. Hopefully Todd Wade will be released then too (I think that will save another $1.8-1.9 million against the 2006 cap).

They are probably more concerned about protecting Charlie Frye than Trent Dilfer

Browns All the Way Man They actually don't have that bad of a team now. Their o-line is now decent or people can say good and if the other people stay healthy like Edwards, Winslow, and Droughns there offense is good. And Frye needs to step it up. If there Defense plays like they did last year (ranked 9th in NFL) they are a playoff team

I think the Browns had an advantage with Bentley coming from Cleveland and wanting to play for the team he grew up rooting for. The Browns had $15 million more to spend than the Texans so they could throw a higher amount out there than almost anyone.

I also feel that players that sign on the first day are pretty much going where they were wanting to go. It's not like he gave teams any opportunity to visit. Don't say the Texans dropped the ball unless you know that Bentley's agent called Houston and they said they're not interested. He turned down San Diego for a visit which had the money to spend as well. He wants to be a Brown. Good for him. When his contact expires and the Browns still have never been to the Super Bowl he can come to Houston as a reserve center and help the Texans win their 3rd Super Bowl in a row.
