    That sorta stinks. I was holding on to the dream of signing Bentley, would have been nice with the mix of linemen we've drafted over the last few years.
    I wonder how this affects J. Hartwig's F.A. prospects. Hartwig won't get nearly as much money, our at least he shouldn't. He's got the "shark", so who knows?

    Browns agree with offensive linemen Bentley, Shaffer

    Cleveland Browns struck quickly in free agency Saturday, reaching agreements with high-profile unrestricted free agents LeCharles Bentley and Kevin Shaffer. ...more

    Crap. Not that I thought we had more than a slim chance at getting him, but still.

    That sucks...the Browns??? Now they just need a QB and a defense....along with the Saints, they would be pretty low on my list if I was a big name FA. That OT they threw big bucks at....he's more the Brown's speed....

    They have their young QB, Charlie Frye. I think Bentley is from Cleveland as well. All the Browns need is health and a #2 receiver. They have Frye, Braylon, K2, Bentley, LJ Shelton at RT, and now Kevin Shaffer at LT. They've drafted 2 safeties early the past couple of years, Sean Jones and Brodney Pool. They mainly need an edge rusher, a NT, and another ILB to pair with Andra Davis, probably one that's good in coverage to compliment Andra's run stopping ability.

    I saw that Bentley is from Cleveland and a long time Browns fan....too bad.

    Cleveland just signed WR Joe Jurevicius as well. They are certainly spending big this offseason...

    They can have him and the scrub former Falcons LT.

    Don't the Browns have Jeff Faine at center? Isn't he really good? I guess one of these (he or Bentley) will be at guard.
