View Full Version : Browns eyeing Matt Schaub

03-11-2007, 10:10 PM
DRAFT BUZZ: The Browns have been monitoring what it would take to pry restricted free-agent QB Matt Schaub away from the Falcons in a draft-related trade. They also have been studying David Carr of the Texans. Bringing in either of those players would entail negotiating a long-term deal. The Browns are willing to move down in, but not out of, Round 1. They have an enticing pick at No. 3 overall, and odds are even that they would trade down if an attractive offer comes along. It's a seller's market for the Browns, who are willing to stay put. The team regards Wisconsin LT Joe Thomas as the surest thing at the top of the draft, but not necessarily the best pick if the team stays at No. 3. RB Adrian Peterson is an injury risk, but he also is a threat to make a more immediate impact than Thomas could. A trade down could signal strong consideration of Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn. The Browns are trying to be careful to judge whether Peterson could be had in a trade down, in which case they would get him cheaper and gain an extra pick.

I would rather just trade Schaub straight up for their 2nd.

The trade up from 10th to 3rd would actually be tantamount to a 17th-18th pick overall. Which, per Kirwan's anonymous Front Office man, would meet the Falcons desires and is realistic.

who does atlanta draft then...peterson or cj?

CJ goes to the Raiders, I think. No way they keep Moss, and if they have no Moss, they have CJ.

So then at that position, I would hope to take Joe Thomas if he is available. If CJ and Joe Thomas arent available, I dont see the need to even trade up.

I hope we don't use schaub to move up to #3 pick

as a cleveland fan i don't see why they would be interested in schaub, if they wanted a new quarterback wouldn't it make more sense to take quinn

Schaub > Quinn...that's easy.

03-12-2007, 02:50 PM

I still want a link.

Oh, there is SO much smoke being blown around right now, it doesn't even matter...

Until I see them, set in stone, I am going to ignore draft pick trading rumors.

Yup, even the official statements are all smoke right now.

Even if Phil Savage said, "we love Matt Schaub, we want to trade for him", i'd take it with a pinch of salt.
