NFL Free Agency: Cleveland Browns Look to Re-Sign Jayme Mitchell
Mitchell Could Be A Key Piece of Browns Defense In 2011
The Cleveland Browns are one of the more intriguing teams to watch because of their potential. They have begun acquiring real talent and have, on paper, a more competent coaching staff.
General Manager Tom Heckert brought Jayme Mitchell in last year to help the defense, but former Head Coach Eric Mangini never let Mitchell on the field, one of many reasons why Mangini no longer is employed by the Cleveland Browns.
Heckert said recently re-signing Mitchell is a goal for the team once the league year begins. He is one of many pieces Heckert is trying to assemble to bring a winning team to Cleveland.
The team now has a new coaching staff focused on winning, instead of a "process" that has no endgame.
Donte Whitner, currently of the Buffalo Bills, was mentioned yesterday as a possibility, especially with his ties to new Defensive Coordinator Dick Jauron.
The Browns are converting from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3, and it is a good year to do it because so many of the players on last year's roster were aging and due to retire or be replaced. The Browns were going to have to completely rebuild anyway.
The Browns will not be playoff contenders this year unless they play well above the level anyone thinks they are capable of and either the Steelers or Ravens have complete meltdowns.
Colt McCoy is a great quarterback in-training, the only question is his durability due to his size, which is considered small for the modern NFL. Some have tried to question his arm strength, but in the right offense, his arm strength will be a moot point.
It will be an interesting year for Cleveland fans, but I do not expect a record any better than 6-10, assuming a full 16 games are played.
