    Doesn't matter Brian. Jacob Martin, Bark, Hyde, we want to trade for them before they're cut Brian. They know who to call Brian.

    Also, we now have the Browns backfield from last year. (minus Nick Chubb)

    This will be his 5th team in two years. I'd rather just give the rookies a shot.

    I think that Rankin was never used right and could be a serviceable guard in the NFL. One thing I know? Our offensive line is somehow even weaker now than it was this morning. Let that sink in. We’ve made three trades and somehow our line is arguably worse now than it was before. What a strange day.

    He'll fit in perfectly with what BOB want to do. Run plays on 2nd and 8 and 3rd and 7. Clockwork.

    Unrelated, but we probably got Hyde not to run, but just as blocking insurance.

    Hyde was intriguing two years ago. Not so much now.

    Bill O'Brien on Carlos Hyde: 'Solid first and second-down runner. Has good size relative to position and had production in past. Losing Lamar hard to replace Lamar, trying to add depth to that position.'

    Buddy Howell. Or maybe Taiwan Jones. Or more accurately, nobody.

    Taiwan Jones but I can see Higdon creeping into that spot by midseason
