Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote:Failing to find a trade partner for White, the Browns released the third-down specialist rather than pay him a $350,000 roster bonus.

White, 26, entered last season with a new, four-year contract that was supposed to help him accept his part-time role in the offense. It turned out the Browns paid him $1.75 million in salary and bonuses in 2003 for 569 total yards rushing and receiving and two touchdowns.

White now can negotiate a new deal with teams. Tampa Bay, Oakland, Arizona, Detroit and Pittsburgh expressed interest.

I always thought he was underused in Cleveland. He could be valuable to a team looking for someone who can fill a Kevin Faulk type role.

ya....i saw this the other day. Cleveland's FO and Butch said they would work out a deal to keep him or trade him. Looks to me like they were lyin through their teeth. The people running this organization are really pissing me off. They have done nothing to help restructure this team. The only good thing they've done is restructure Warren's contract by 3mil. They want Couch to restructure his to 1mil per year, whereas he's already slated to make 7-8 mil this year and each year left on his contract. it's pathetic. pretty soon we'll have Blake in here at QB if this keeps up....which may be in improvement, but still...

the FO/Davis is starting to make this team into a pile of uncompetitive junk. it's embarrassing. :-t

White always seemed to be a good pass catching RB. He would fit in nicely with a lot of teams, but I wonder if he is thinking that he deserves a big money contract. He seems not quite fast enough, strong enough, or elusive enough to excel as a primary back.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
