10:31 AM ET 03.10 | If you can't beat 'em, sign 'em. That seemed to be the Browns mantra over the past two days when they called the agents of Ravens free agent linebackers Dannell Ellerbe and Paul Kruger, league sources told the Plain Dealer. The "backers, fresh off their Super Bowl victory over the 49ers, are two of the many unrestricted free agents the Browns have reached out to through their agents during this quirky new three-day legal tampering window before free agency opens Tuesday at 4 p.m. Kruger, who had nine sacks during the regular season and 4.5 in the playoffs, is believed to be a main target of the Browns, along with Detroit pass-rusher Cliff Avril. The Ravens would love to keep Kruger, but they're cash-strapped this offseason and probably won't be able to match the possible $9 million a year he'll get on the open market.

Ain't enough money for me to leave Baltimore and go to Cleveland.

Kruger vs. James Harrison who is interest in Cleveland. I'd take Kruger any day of the week! He's younger and Harrrison's missed games the last two years due to injury.
