BROWNS FEARED THREE-WAY TRADE

Posted by Mike Florio on April 2, 2008, 6:59 a.m.

Browns G.M. Phil Savage provided on Tuesday more details regarding the basis for his team s decision to offer more money to quarterback Derek Anderson.

According to Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Savage feared that the Cowboys would have signed Anderson to an offer sheet containing a poison pill (which remains a valid, but unused, tool for prompting player movement), and then the Cowboys would have traded Anderson to Miami.

Specifically, the Cowboys would have sent the No. 28 overall pick to the Browns plus a third-rounder for Anderson, pursuant to the high-level restricted free agency tender that the Browns had affixed to the one-year starter. Then, the Cowboys would have shipped Anderson and the Cowboys other first-round pick (obtained from the Browns as part of the Brady Quinn trade; more on that later) to the Dolphins for the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, which the Cowboys would have then used to select running back Darren McFadden of Arkansas.

(In our view, the Cowboys wouldn t have needed to use a poison pill to get Anderson. If the Cowboys had merely signed Anderson to a five-year or a six-year deal worth $10 million or more per season, the Browns wouldn t have matched, since doing so would have prevented them from deferring the question of whether Anderson or Quinn is the long-term answer.)

The basis for Savage s suspicions? He says that the Fins declined to answer phone calls prior to the February 29 launch of free agency.

Oooooooooo.

Savage also thinks that the Cowboys would have been influenced to take part in the charade by, well, spite.

What better way to get back at us for having a good year? Savage said, referring to the value of the first-round pick that the Cowboys claimed from Cleveland, which after the first week of the season looked on track to be one of the highest picks in the draft.

If Savage is right, and if the Cowboys are out for cockeyed revenge, they might get their chance in Week One. Grossi reports that the Browns could end up hosting Dallas in a nationally-televised 4:15 p.m. EDT game on FOX on the first Sunday of the 2008 season.

And even if Savage is right, he really shouldn t be talking about any of this publicly. It makes him look paranoid at best, goofy at worst.

my boy told me about this a while back but he also said the browns was going to resign DA before the cowboys could make this trade go down .....

so if the cowboys came to us with the two 1st round picks, 3rd round pick, and bobby carpenter........ this trade will go down

That would be the worst idea Dallas could ever have.  They JUST got done extending Romo to a ridiculous contract.  If they did that with Anderson, with Romo just signed to the exact same contract, they'd have absolutely 0 negotiating leverage because they would have two QB's taking up 20% of their cap.  Ridiculous.

If you really think Jerry Jones DOESN'T want McFadden.....

you're a #####ing idiot, you know that?  I mean, is it even possible to be so dumb as to think what you just typed was correct?  Did you graduate high school?  Did you go to college? 

Wait, I already know the answers to these questions.......(of course not)

If you're going to speak like an idiot, please do so on another board and keep from embarrassing the members of this one.
