Default Browns sign 2 Offensive Linemen

per espn....

With money to spend and holes to fill, the Cleveland Browns struck quickly in free agency Saturday, reaching agreements with a pair of high-profile unrestricted free agents who will dramatically alter the landscape of the team's offensive line unit

The Browns have signed center LeCharles Bentley of New Orleans, the top-ranked player overall in ESPN.com's ratings of unrestricted free agents. The team also reached an agreement in principle with Atlanta Falcons left offensive tackle Kevin Shaffer, ESPN.com's 26th-rated free agent.

Whoops, just posted the same...mods, please delete my thread...

Browns just got a little better...
Actually, maybe a lot. Just heard on Fox Sports that they signed LeCharles Bentley to play guard and Kevin Shaffer to replace Sheldon at LOT. ESPN's Len Pasquarelli had Bentley as the top free agent player in the NFL. Those are both strong signings...

LeCharles should feel right at home going from Fecal City to Turd Town.

I heard that the Clowns just signed Joe Jurevicius.

Very interesting.

Bentley has a mean streak a mile wide...in his last year at OSU, Tyson Walter (Who is still in the NFL playing OT for some team or other) pissed off Bentley at practice. They had a fight after practice, and it consisted of two hits: Bentley hitting Walter, and Walter hitting the ground.

i didnt give it too much thought, but i did wonder if it was worth it to cut hartings and okolbi to sign bentley. in the end i thought no but 6 years for 36 mil. seems like a pretty good deal. especially considering what hartings was due to make this season on a 4-5 year old deal.

It was a great signing for Cleveland because Bentley will be playing guard but can take over for Jeff Faine at center if needed.
