Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Browns will "take a real run" at trying to trade for Sam Bradford. Relaying Combine buzz, Cole reports the Browns will aggressively pursue quarterbacks, and Bradford is at the "top of their list," with free agent Josh McCown as a fallback option. Cole floats a second- or third-round pick as potential trade compensation. Bradford has reportedly informed the Rams he will not take a pay cut, which may complicate his future in St. Louis. If he falls out of the Rams' plans -- which still seems unlikely -- the Browns would love to be there to catch him.
The Cleveland Browns have an unearthed yet another quarterback in their never-ending quest for stability under center. The team on Friday agreed to terms with free-agent quarterback Josh McCown, who spent last season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Browns Pro Bowl safety Tashaun Gipson won't be in Cleveland for Tuesday's OTA launch. Yet to ink his second-round tender, the fourth-year backstop is seeking a long-term deal from the team. The same goes for Chargers safety Eric Weddle.
