    UFA DE/OLB Antwan Peek is visiting Cleveland today.

    Peek didn't fit in with the 4-3, but he wasn't a very good 34 OLB, either.

    He fits in an Escalade. Other than that, he hasn't done squat. However, I am sure he will become an all-pro for the Browns.

    Anyone want Steve Foley back?

    Good for him, I think he was a better LB. Hopefully Babin can step it up this year, I think he started to understand his role as a reserve DE. I have faith in Babin.

    Even if there is no substance to your story, I think some 3-4 team will grab him.

    STEINBACH SIGNS WITH THE BROWNS

    Several published reports confirm that the Cleveland Browns have signed offensive lineman Eric Steinbach. The deal is worth $49.5 million over seven years.

    Steinbach is expected to play right tackle for the Browns.

    The deal exceeds by $500,00 the contract signed last season by guard Steve Hutchinson with the Vikings.

    We reported on Thursday night that Steinbach already had an agreement in principle with the Browns. And, let's face it, there's no way that much money changed hands based on one day.

    Is he even able to play? Isn't he the guy that was shot a little while back? I know we need players but I prefer the ones without bullet holes.

    So I guess this means that Babin wins the Babin vs. Peek wars ?
    I never was sure which player the new regime preferred, and little doubt
    now unless I wakeup in the morning and find out Babin has also been cut.

    To me, you need to fuse those two into one player. Peek had speed and burst with no moves, and Babin had moves without a true burst. In one body, a very player in two what he had for the last three years.

    There is nothing that said he signed other than people on a message board. He has other visits to make.

    Babin was timed at 4.6 in the forty at the combine so speed is not a problem. Probably needs better techniques but did lead the club in sacks last year. Although that's not saying much, it's probably not bad for a part-time guy. Peek I'm sure will probably end up with a 3-4 defense somewhere. Good luck to him.

    Yea, but timing off the ball matters more the running forty yards. He might be slow to start off with then burst out of know where in the last 20 yards. Know He might be fast off the start, but just cuase your fast in the forty does not mean your fast off the line.

    Browns agreed to terms with OLB Antwan Peek on a multi-year contract.
    We like it. If the 6-3/250-pound Peek can stay healthy, he'll get to the passer. Cleveland didn't need a star edge rusher as much as offensive line help, and addressed that with Eric Steinbach. Peek, 27, is worth a gamble as a possible replacement for Willie McGinest on the outside.

    Officially, Peek is gone. Under Romeo Crennel, he's going to flourish. We go up against him next season, where I expect he'll have the game of his career.
