Default Boldin to the Browns?

I heard this on the radio the other day as a semi-possible scenario

Edwards and a 2nd rounder for Boldin.

Might actually work for both teams...as Fitzgerald will be a nice mentor for Edwards (something he's never had) and Boldin will certainly be the #1 that he believes he is...though nobody else could be a #1 on a team with Fitzgerald.

It would be a huge improvement for the Browns...just because Boldin actually keeps a hold of the ball once it hits his hands.

After that, they draft Michael Crabtree and have a couple of stud WRs for Quinn/Anderson to throw to.

I've heard all sorts of movement with WRs. I can't believe a radio source on something like it unless it happens.

it would make sense for this trade 2 go down.. b/c both teams will get a good quality wr in turn...

could see that more than anything else.. since they do get a starter back in return

Didn't mean to say that they thought it would happen...or that they heard it would happen...but wanted to present it as a possible scenario to be discussed. Get the fans input on:

a: Whether they'd want that
b: How plausible it sounds
c: If it isn't plausible, what would it take to make it happen.

I can't wait to see how the Browns and Benglas will screw up the draft.

Remember passing on Ngata to take Wimbley? a colossal blunder.

Kind of like Winslow/Edwards?

They're just a pathetic organization, and nothing they do will work.

Cleveland can steal as many of our personal as they want and name them their GMs, but nothing will ever work.

His first season, he was significantly better...however, we've never paired him with anybody worth mentioning...and teams got onto his 1 move. As things stand right now, there are two guys to try and block when we rush the passer, Rogers and Wimbley. Last season, we were amongst the fewest "rush the passer" teams in the league...and if you're not attempting to rush the passer, then you're not using guys like Wimbley to their strengths.

Boldin is a significant upgrade over Edwards...and Winlsow is a j@ck@$$. I don't know how good Crabtree will be, but he certainly has the filmwork that shows he can be successful. Having him across from Boldin could very well be a nice pairing.

It would kind of be a lateral move for the Browns... Boldin is overrated for how injury prone he is. I would stick it out with Edwards and his upside, if you could convince him to stay that is.
