No snap decision: Browns coach Mangini refuses to rush starting QB pick, says process not complete

BEREA – The longer Eric Mangini waits to pick a starting quarterback, the less time the winner has to find a rhythm with the rest of the first-team offense. Mangini doesn’t care. The Browns coach declined to name his regular-season starter Monday, despite Brady Quinn’s strong performance Saturday night in a 23-17 win over Tennessee Read More…

Browns notes: Veteran lineman Ryan Tucker reportedly released

BEREA – Ryan Tucker’s career with the Browns looks like it’s over. WKNR 850-AM reported Monday that the veteran offensive lineman had been released. The team wouldn’t confirm the move, but Tucker had arthroscopic knee surgery Wednesday so an injury settlement must be reached before he can be officially released. Tucker’s agent, Joseph Coletta, didn’t Read More…

Source: Browns lineman Tucker had knee surgery last week

Browns offensive lineman Ryan Tucker had arthroscopic knee surgery Wednesday, according to a source familiar with the situation. Arthroscopic surgery is usually performed to remove torn cartilage or scar tissue and isn’t nearly as serious as reconstructive surgery.

Petrak: Quinn should be Browns’ QB

It’s time. While I highly doubt Browns coach Eric Mangini will end the suspense and announce his starting quarterback today, he should. The regular season is less than two weeks away, the Browns have only two practices this week and the goal of the preseason finale is to not get anyone hurt. So the quarterback Read More…

Browns 23, Titans 17: Team shines; Quinn outplays Anderson

CLEVELAND — The Browns got a nice victory over a tough Tennessee Titans team Saturday night. Perhaps more importantly, they seemed to gain a measure of clarity in the quarterback competition. The Browns were outclassed and fell behind 7-0 in the first quarter, but used a blocked field goal by Robaire Smith and timely turnovers Read More…

Time to get serious: Tonight’s Titans game could tell a lot about Browns’ season

CLEVELAND – How the Browns fare in 2009 will remain a mystery until the season starts Sept. 13, if not longer. But tonight’s preseason game against the Tennessee Titans could provide the greatest glimpse into what’s ahead this fall in the first year under coach Eric Mangini. The third preseason game is the dress rehearsal Read More…

Browns players mingling in new-look locker room

BEREA — Braylon Edwards is out of his comfort zone. And he likes it. For four years, he occupied the same locker at Browns headquarters. He was among his fellow receivers, adjacent to the quarterbacks and across from the tight ends. In the first year of the Eric Mangini Era, Edwards is on the other Read More…

Age just a number? Browns’ Lewis hits 30, still believes he can carry the rushing load

BEREA – Jamal Lewis hit the big 3-0 Wednesday. He didn’t keel over, start walking with a cane or announce his retirement. He did take some ribbing from his teammates. “Talk about the ’70s and Ozzie Newsome,” receiver Braylon Edwards said as they switched spots in front of the assembled media. The history of the Read More…

Browns analysis: Anderson staying close to Quinn in QB race

Derek Anderson is making things hard for Eric Mangini, and Brady Quinn fans. Quinn was the presumptive pick to win the starting quarterback job when training camp opened, but Anderson won’t go away. He’s thrown the ball well since the beginning of camp and made his loudest statement Saturday night with a strong first quarter Read More…
