EDIT: It would appear as though the article about Givens signing with the Browns was in fact a fake.

Well, crap. I was kinda hoping he'd make his way down south... we need a young, #3 sort guy.

Oh well. Best of luck... I like a lot of the moves the Borwnies have made in the last couple years ... except for letting Antonio go. They are apparently trying to rectify that.

I thought teams weren't allowed to contact players until after midnight? How could they have a deal already done?

Good move by the Browns. They now have some very nice targets for their young QB. Braylon, Winslow Jr. (if he ever stays healthy) and now Givens. They need to get defensive help though.

Damn, he was a nice fit in the Pats sytem but at the price he probably signed at he isnt worth it. Def locking up Vinatieri is a higher priority than a number 3 wideout.

Well, appears that the article was a fake (as was the one about Zastudil signing with the Browns).

I think bringing back Bryant would've been better for the Browns, but Givens is quality, young, and fills the needs of a #2 WR very well.

Good start for the Browns.

Are you sure? I'm seeing the same thing on KFFL...

Browns | Team wastes no time in signing Zastudil

Zac Jackson, of ClevelandBrowns.com, reports the Cleveland Browns wasted no time in free agency by signing free agent P Dave Zastudil (Ravens) to an undisclosed contract.

Zac Jackson, of ClevelandBrowns.com, reports the Cleveland Browns wasted no time in free agency by signing free agent WR David Givens (Patriots) to an undisclosed contract.


on further review of clevelandbrowns.com, I see nothing to back it up. Most bizarre.

Pretty sure KFFL just got fooled. I dont think it should come to surprise anyone that KFFL isnt the most reliable of sites. :-b
