Yup and if he turns things around everybody will be talking about how great Ozzie Newsome is as a GM and the fans here will be dillusionally loving Larry Foote again.

Not going to say Foote was worth the deal he got signed too, but he was certainly a solid backup.

Exactly, we have a BACKUP starting at ILB. Rather than get a player on the upswing of his play and ability, we signed a 11 year veteran on the decline. Terrible decision IMO.

I hope we find a rookie starter in the draft somehow.

Hey, it could be worse. The Browns have backups at EVER position.

Larry Foote is solid. We can't have All-Star's at ever position every year.

We drafted a potential starter in the draft last year and now it's unknown if he'll ever play again. Shit happens.

Larry Foote is sub standard. The Browns arguably have a better linebacking Corps than the Steelers. Carder, Acho or Johnson are all better than Foote.

D'Quell Jackson
Tank Carder
Emanuell Acho
James Michael Johnson
Quentin Groves

I hate the Ravens more than anybody.....OK, just as much as many of you.
But you gotta give Ozzie Newsome a ton of credit.
Loses a lot of talent and then signs Dumervil and likely McClain to re-stock his D.

McClain is not only a liability in pass-coverage, he's failed to stop the run on several occasions.

Elvis Dumerville is undoubtedly a great pickup, but we haven't really seen much from him in over 3 years, so it'll be interesting to see whether or not that deal pays off.
