The Browns don’t plan to franchise free agent Terrelle Pryor.

This conflicts with a previous report the Browns were leaning toward the tag with Pryor. It sounds there's more optimism for an extension after the Browns met with Pryor’s agent this week. The Browns have until March 1 to make a decision on Pryor. Pryor is targeting $10-11 million annually.

Browns signed LS Charley Hughlett to a six-year contract through 2022.

This is our first ever blurb on Hughlett, whom ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Browns are making the league's highest-paid long snapper. Were we to conduct film review on Hughlett, we suspect it would find that he is indeed good at snapping the ball longer than it is usually snapped.

A source told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that free agent Terrelle Pryor has "instructed" his representation that he "wants to stay in Cleveland."

Pryor is repped by Rosenhaus Sports. The Rosenhauses are expected to meet with Browns officials this week to begin contract negotiations, which should heat up in earnest at the NFL Combine (February 28 to March 6). Pryor is a top-three free agent wide receiver along with Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson. His intentions on staying with the Browns suggest Pryor may be open to a small hometown discount. Pryor should be able to command $10-11 million per year.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports the Browns will meet with impending free agent Terrelle Pryor's representation this week.

Pryor is represented by Drew Rosenhaus. La Canfora previously reported the Browns are "very likely" to place the franchise tag on Pryor if they cannot work out a long-term deal. Pryor has already said he wants to remain in Cleveland, so it will not be surprising if the two sides come to an agreement before the franchise tag deadline on March 1.

Browns hired David Lee as QBs coach.

The 63-year-old has been everywhere and anywhere, as he's been coaching QBs since 1975. Lee was the QBs coach for the Bills under coach Rex Ryan the previous two seasons. It's notable that the Browns are bringing in Lee now. Cleveland has been linked to Tyrod Taylor in recent weeks.

Browns claimed S Tyvis Powell off waivers from the Seahawks.

An UDFA out of Ohio State, Powell appeared in eight games for the 'Hawks as a rookie, though he played zero snaps on defense. A gargantuan 6-foot-3, 211, Powell is also an exceptional athlete but doesn't play as big as his frame.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said he has not "come to any conclusions" about Robert Griffin III's future in Cleveland

"Everybody else can jump to those conclusions," Jackson continued, "but we're going to keep looking at this thing." The Browns have been open about their need to find a quarterback this offseason, which is as definite a conclusion as you can make about Griffin. Owed a $1.5 million roster bonus in March, it would be very surprising if RG3 is back in Cleveland.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports the Browns are "very likely" to place the franchise tag on Terrelle Pryor.

After locking up Jamie Collins to a long-term contract, Pryor is the next order of business for Cleveland. La Canfora believes it "would be crazy" for Pryor to sign a contract right now, suggesting he thinks the receiver will cash in as a free agent, but Pryor has already told his agents he wants to stay in Cleveland. It is not out of the question the two sides work out a deal. The tag should be worth close to $16 million for receivers in 2017.
Jan 23 - 10:11 PM

Browns re-signed OLB Jamie Collins to a four-year, $50 million contract with $26 million guaranteed.

Collins had been in the last year of his rookie contract, which prompted his mid-season trade from New England. He's now the NFL's fourth highest-paid linebacker on an annual basis behind Von Miller, Justin Houston and Clay Matthews. Used as a jack of all trades by the Patriots, Collins was given more edge-rusher opportunities in Cleveland and will be counted on to key the team's outside pass rush moving forward.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports free agent LB Jamie Collins is seeking $12 million annually.

The Browns have made "significant progress" in extension talks, with a contract between the sides expected to be finalized soon. Collins is looking for Luke Kuechly money (5 years, $61.8M). With the most cap space in the league, Cleveland shouldn’t have trouble getting a deal done.
Jan 21 - 6:10 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns have reached a "stalemate" in extension talks with restricted free agent Isaiah Crowell.

RapSheet contends the sides were in "heavy talks" at one point. It doesn't make much sense for the Browns to commit long term to Crowell when they can retain him with a cheap restricted free agent tender. Crowell is a solid runner who averaged 4.8 yards per carry this past season, but his monetary value is minimal as a two-down grinder who already has over 500 NFL carries under his belt.
Jan 20 - 2:06 PM

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Browns have made "significant progress" in contract talks with impending free agent Jamie Collins, and are expected to finalize a deal by the weekend.

GM Sashi Brown is on record as hoping to keep Collins without the franchise tag. Collins' play was listless following his acquisition from the Patriots, but that's not surprising for a player going from the top of the league to the bottom. Still only 27, Collins is a versatile playmaker, and has been durable. He would be a nice building block for a team in the middle of a total reset.

Browns hired Jaguars DBs coach DeWayne Walker for the same position.

He'll be reunited with DC Gregg Williams, who he worked with in Washington from 2004-05. Walker had been with the Jaguars since 2013. The Browns are rebuilding their defensive coaching staff after cleaning house earlier this month.
Jan 13 - 4:56 PM

Browns fired DBs coach Louie Cioffi, ILBs coach Johnny Holland, OLBs coach Ryan Slowik, OL Hal Hunter and assistant DBs coach Cannon Matthews.

The Browns are cleaning house as they prepare to switch to a 4-3 front under new DC Gregg Williams. This is more turnover than coach Hue Jackson hinted he wanted, but hardly surprising for a team that just went 1-15.
Jan 10 - 3:37 PM

Browns CB Joe Haden underwent groin surgery.

He said the procedure "went great!" Haden was ineffective playing through two groin injuries this season, and he has been on a downward trend the last two years. He needs a healthy bounce-back season in 2017.
