Cleveland was never a cheap team....should really get your facts straight. Under Lerner they spent money but never hired the right people. However, under the last regime, GM Tom Heckert was doing a great job building a team using the draft. That combined with the restructuring of NFL payrolls so that ALL the money did not get spent on unproven draft players has allowed them to stay under the cap. Last year Cleveland was by FAR the youngest team in the NFL. That is why they have a good room in salary cap.

I know your just trying to pick a fight with Browns fans, but the Browns have never been cheap. The only really big contract they have is the best tackle in the league, Joe Thomas. And I'm sure they'll pay Haden huge money when he becomes a FA.

Can't argue with an open-and-shut case like the one you just presented.

How do you know they have bad management when they're all new? And as for being cheap, they haven't even had a chance to show what they are going to spend because FA hasn't started.

You guys are arguing with a guy who obviously has way too much time on his hands to post 22,000 times. I'm guilty as well.

As a Browns fan, I despise the Ravens and Steelers. However, I always root for the Bengals if they make the playoffs even if a division rival.
