So much for his career


Thanks for the vote of confidence. Geez, can't you people just give it a chance? All us Browns fans can do is hope, that's all we've been able to do since we came back. Maybe we'll get a couple lucky breaks for once.

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.

Jeez, 6 years/36 million for Bentley and now 7 years/49 million for Steinbach. Quite a lot for lineman in consecutive years.

Well, this is nice to hear as a Cleveland fan. Kind of suprising (i need to see a link), becuase he reportably left with no contract insight.

Now will they have enough money to sign Clements? Or will he be a 49er...

Well have fun getting hurt in training camp and being on IR for the rest of the season Mr. Steinbach. The Browns are cursed. Atleast that means you aren't getting Dielman, I like him better than Steinbach actually.

That is crazy, the RT part. I never would have guessed. i thought for sure we would sign him to play OG.

So now our tackles are set, unless we draft Thomas to play LT, and move Shaffer to LG, but if thats the case the Browns might have the most exspensive OL in NFL history.

LT - Kevin Shaffer
LG - Joe Andruzzi
OC - Hank Fraley (someday Bentley)
RG - Isaac Sowells
RT - Eric Steinbach

Now we really need a gaurd in the draft.

Its cool, its just a really touchy subject in Cleveland, because its so true, but breaks my heart every year.

I would much rather see him at OG, that is where we need the most help, and that is the position he is best at.

JoeMontainya
03-02-2007, 06:13 PM
He could allways still play OG for us.

I would rather have Steinbach at LG and Butler at RT, rather than Steinbach RT and Andruzzi LG.

Yeah, well sorry about flipping. It's just that all day, every couple posts I read about someone the Browns might get, I read that their career is over. It just gets to me after a while. I'm cooling now. Hopefully this time, things will work out better for us, and the player we signed.

Agreed, we do need more help inside. I don't want to see Andruzzi out there again.

Great pickup for Cleveland, but can he stay healthy?

Good luck Browns Fans!

JoeMontainya
03-02-2007, 06:18 PM
i think with all the OG's we interviewed at the senior bowl and our management mentioning it could be likely we draft one early, despite that not being how Savage usually does things, we will draft an OG in RD2-3.

It would be sweet if Blaylock went to us in RD2, but I think he'll go RD1.

Are we lucky enough for him to stay healthy? I certainly hope so. And thanks for the luck, we will need it.

oh by the way, i think bentley is done for his career, which sucks becasue if he was healthy we would have one of the top o-lines. and mr.peterson coulbe a 1000 yard back every year, and to a previous question, yes they do have enough for clements

Yes, but I think Clements is pretty much more than happy to go to San Fran.

He's gonna play either LG or LT. He's not gonna play RT, that's a typo, ignore that

he will be back next year, Savage said he plans on it, its just impossible to say for sure.

While that may be the case, watching Andruzzi at G makes me sick.

True. But you can sign a mid level guy.. you mean to tell me you believe Steinbach was worth 48-49M to play RT?

Tons of LT's don't even make that much, and it's their natural position. I can see that much, but when the BEST gaurd is making less, and you sign a natural G, to play RT..

I understand he's going to replace Andruzzi, but thats a lot of money to pay a guy thats not the best at his position.

I was pretty sure he'd be atleast tested as a Tackle, if it doens't work out he will be moved to guard.

Oh, you're quite right. The money flying all over the place is DISGUSTING. I'm glad we got him, but the price is insane.

03-02-2007, 06:36 PM
he's also 6'7 or 6'6 remember back when he was drafted many teams thought he projected very well as a LT? that is why the browns want him at tackle.

The Browns want him at guard, but if he is gonna play tackle then they will move Kevin Shaffer to RT where he is a better fit and put Steinbach at LT.

Do you even realize how much money would be locked up in our o-line if we did that? I'm not sure we'd want to pull that move.

that sucks. I love Eric Steinbach and he's so athletic and versatile the bengals are gonna miss him. We kept our elite bookend tackles and didnt have enough left over for him so i guess were better off anyway with some good young players in the wings. He'll be great for the Browns as long as he doesnt get hurt which is a distinct possibility.

Look at Clements' deal. It's mesmerizing.
