Philadelphia Eagles at Cleveland Browns Recap

Wow, some how, some way, the Philadelphia Eagles pulled out a win versus the lowly Cleveland Browns. In what was an exceptionally ugly game through-out, Michael Vick managed to rally his team with a Touch Down pass to Clay Harbor with just under 1:20 to go.  Vicks final 91 yard drive to win the game was really the only time in the game where he looked comfortable, Vick finished the game 29 of 56 for 317 yards with two Touch Downs and four INTs.

Cleveland Browns move to Tennessee

Ok, Not really, there are currently no plans to move the team, but the Cleveland Browns sale has been completed. Tennessee business man Jimmy Haslam is the proud new owner of a failing franchise.  League sources quote the sale as being over the $1 Billion dollar mark. 

Minnesota Moves Down

The Cleveland Browns, obviously desperate to add a dominating physical Running Back, moved up one spot by trading with the Minnesota Vikings.  The move appears to be Cleveland’s shot at keeping Trent Richardson away from Tampa Bay.  Tampa was thought to be the most likely team to move into the 3 spot, but the Browns beat them to the punch.

Cleveland gave up their pick in the 1st round, 4th overall, along with their fourth pick (118), fifth (139), and seventh (211) round picks to slide up the one spot they needed to guarantee that Trent Richardson would be a Brown.

Richardson will be the first player off the board to have a solid fantasy value in 2012.  Not since Adrian Peterson came out was there a running back who could step into the league and produce.  The biggest advantage Richardson will have is he is coming into a run heavy system and looks to be able to carry the load.
