Well, it ain’t much but word on the (Matt Barrows) street is that the Carolina Panthers are interested in our #2 pick in the draft. They have the 8th pick and there’s no word what else we would get but last year in the same trade last year between The Eagles and the Browns, the Eagles got the second overall pick, and the Browns fourth round pick, and the Browns got the eighth overall pick, plus the Eagles third and fourth round picks, as well as the Eagles first and second round picks in 2017.
The Eagles really wanted that 2nd pick to get Carson Wentz, and got him. The Browns? Well, they are loaded for bear in this draft. But we’ve said that before. But they look to get Myles Garrett, so unless they trip over their dicks yet again they look to get a very good edge rusher.
What that means for us, if it even happens, is a mystery. But more than anything we need high draft picks this year. High draft picks that turn in to starters. They appear to be doing things right, and I like the players we have gotten so far, but there’s nothing to write home about. Hoyer and Hot Tub aren’t going to remind anyone of the Montana/Young days but I certainly feel better about things than I did a year ago.
And no, I’m not playing Rumors by Fleetwood Mac.
