Browns sign former Bengals G Steinbach to seven-year deal

CLEVELAND (TICKER) -- The Cleveland Browns bolstered their offensive line Saturday, signing guard Eric Steinbach to a seven-year contract.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported on its web site that the deal is worth $49.5 million, including $17 million in guaranteed money.

The signing of Steinbach marks the first major offseason move for the Browns, who plucked the 6-6, 290-pound lineman from AFC North Division rival Cincinnati Bengals. Steinbach, who turns 27 years old next month, has played 63 games in four seasons with Cincinnati, making 59 starts at left guard.

"Eric is a versatile lineman," Browns coach Romeo Crennel said. "We played against him twice a year and are well aware of his abilities and were impressed with what we saw. He will be a good addition to our team."

I agree Bennett should be a huge fantasy guy the way the Rams throw the ball all the time. Isaac Bruce will probably just retire anyways.

The eagles made sure they had Feeley under a new contract before the let Garcia walk, Garcia was the beneficiary of Reid giving up play calling responsibilities at the end of year and letting the OC give the team some balance

Reid better do that this year because their offense was on fire with Garcia at the helm running the offense the way they did.

I don't think Garcia will have near the success he had last year, now that he's gone, but that's just my opinion. He fit that system well with the talent they had to work with.

Adam Schefter is reporting the Patriots have offered RFA Wes Welker a big contract and if the Dolphins don't match it the Pats will have to give them a second round pick.

Wes Welker will be great in New England...

a second seams like an awful lot to give up for welker especially since someone like plummer a probable starter was only worth a 4th to TB

It seems the Dolphins goofed in my eyes. I would have offered Welker the 1.8 so just incase some team signed they would have to give you their first round pick. Last Welker was a very good player for the Dolphins and if the Pats do land him they will be getting a very solid player. He is a very good return man and nice 2nd/3rd WR.

Oh yeah, they goofed... If the Pats had to give up a first round pick I don't think they would have pursued him.

The 49ers' free-agent hits just keep on coming. The team landed free-agent wide receiver Ashley Lelie on Saturday, a day after the signings of cornerback Nate Clements and safety Michael Lewis.

I don't think teams practice that philosophy near as much as they should. 1.8 million in todays NFL salary cap world is virtually peanuts, and it almost ensures that you get a great player or keep a guy you've been grooming for years.

The Dallas Cowboys are finalizing an agreement with free agent offensive lineman Leonard Davis, the second pick in the 2001 NFL draft who has played the last six seasons for the Arizona Cardinals, a source with knowledge of the negotiations told ESPN.com. Davis' contract is expected to exceed the free agent deals of Bills guard Derrick Dockery (7 years, $49 million) and Browns guard Eric Steinbach (7 years, $49.5 million).

... free agent deals of Bills guard Derrick Dockery (7 years, $49 million) and Browns guard Eric Steinbach (7 years, $49.5 million).
If these guys are getting this kind of money , there is no way the STEELERS are going to be able to sign Faneca, unless it is a short term deal.
