    The kind of move that would immediately make us a serious threat to bring home the Lombardi, but you're right a tough one to pull off, though we may not have to clear all that much cap room, depending on how much it'll cost us to fill other needs



    Desperate we are thanks to Flowers' regression.

    Exactly. That's the problem.

    Would be great though. If we had Thomas on the team I'd feel like we're pretty much the best team in the league or close to it.

    Depends on if Eli wants better protection or not. He is the largest contract on the team and can do something about it if he wants to help him self and the team.

    I'd gladly drop Harris and Vereen to get it done.
    Spin that Webb young Davis

    Not sure if this is possible but could the Browns pick up half or maybe a third of his salary plus we give them a second rounder?

    I thought we had roughly 14 million in cap.

    Possible it most certainly is, just a matter of if the giants want to go to those lengths

    100% agreed

    Honestly if I'm him if straight up hand back a few mil to get it done

    And id def drop them too, think that'd be like 6 mil between those 2 no?

    Could the Browns absorb some salary cap in a possible trade?
