I get the feeling they were looking to clear space for an offer to Ellerbe or Krueger.
6th round pick? *snicker* Salary dump the whole way.
WOW - both Ellerbe and Kruger are gone. Sounds like a fire sale to keep lil Joey.
The Cleveland Browns and pass-rushing linebacker Paul Kruger have reached an agreement on a five-year contract.
Kruger's deal is worth $40 million, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
AFC North champs also reportedly lost inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe in free agency to Miami. Perennial Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed could be next.http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/9044543/paul-kruger-agrees-5-year-deal-cleveland-browns-sources
