Rookies Thomas, Wright agrees to deals with Browns
By TOM WITHERS,
AP Sports Writer
July 27, 2007


CLEVELAND (AP) -- Offensive tackle Joe Thomas agreed to terms on a six-year contract with the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night, ensuring the No. 3 overall pick will be at the opening of training camp.

The club also reached agreement on a four-year deal with cornerback Eric Wright, a second-round pick, leaving quarterback Brady Quinn as the team's only unsigned draft pick.

Thomas' agent, Peter Schaffer, who also represents Wright along with partner Lamont Smith, had been "grinding" through contract language with the Browns all day. Cleveland avoided a holdout by Thomas, the highest selected player to come to terms this summer.

The deal for Thomas can be shortened to five years. Financial terms weren't immediately available, but reports said the former Wisconsin All-American will get about $23 million in guaranteed money -- the most ever given to a tackle.

"The deals for Joe and Eric are a culmination of three months of constant, good-faith, arms-length negotiations by myself, my partner and the Browns," Schaffer said. "There were countless hours of give and take, honest negotiations and hard work that led to two win-win contracts."

By getting the deals completed, Thomas and Wright will be on the practice field Friday afternoon when the Browns have their first workout with their veterans.

Unless something major develops in the next few hours, Quinn won't be there and any absence will hurt his chances of beating out Charlie Frye or Derek Anderson for the starting job.

The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Thomas missed the team's rookie orientation program this week as Schaffer negotiated. Rated as the top lineman in April's draft, and one of the most polished to come out of college in the past few years, Thomas will compete with incumbent Kevin Shaffer for the starting job at left tackle.

Wright, who slipped into the second round due to off-the-field troubles he had as a freshman at Southern California, will compete for a starting job in the Browns' secondary. Financial terms were not available on the deal for Wright.

Now that the Browns have Thomas and Wright signed, they can turn their full attention to Quinn, whose contract situation is a tricky one. The Notre Dame QB slid through the first round before he was picked by the Browns, who traded a first-round pick in 2008 to Dallas to move into the No. 22 spot to get Quinn.

However, Quinn's agent, Tom Condon, who was in Cleveland for face-to-face talks with general manager Phil Savage last weekend, could be asking for his client to get paid like a Top 10 pick.




I guess I didn't read the whole Yahoo Sports page before posting about Gaines Adams.

Schweet.

The Browns now have a Super Bowl Champion at right tackle, the anchor to Philly's line from the glory days at center, a pro bowler at guard, a former pro bowler potentially playing at the other guard spot, the best lineman in the draft at left tackle, and a couple of NFL starters as backups.

Finally...depth on the O Line. Maybe this year the Browns will have a real offense.

Late.

Don't get your hopes up. One thing I've learned as a Lions fan.

I like the Browns this year, I think with the O-Line they have and with Jamal Lewis, they can do some real damage with the running game. The Lions will be better too, remember they lost a ton of games by only a few points last year a play here or there and were talking of a possible playoff team.

Offensively, the Lions could catch fire this year. Roy Williams' game is tight and Calvin Jackson or Johnson or whatever his name is...shit I want to see him running some sixes, byooooooooy.

Kevin Jones has got the quicks that if Kitna can back off the blitzers, he can be a good back.

It's the Defense and the O Line for D Town. If those two can come together, you might be good.

Favre said that Kitna was a warrior last year. That's gotta count for something.

Late.

Our wide outs are sick as hell this year, I'll admit that. Kevin Jones is a fuckin glass figurine. I'm expecting Tatum Bell to be the primary back by years end. Our O-Line should be alright if it can stay healthy...something it didn't do last year. As four our defense, I'm feeling awsome about the line, possibly good about the linebackers if the right guys get the starting spots. As for our D-Backs, I just dunno. They'll have to prove it to me.

I think Kitna is going to be a beast this season. I can't wait to see what he can do. If that line can play even a fraction better than it did last year, and if he can cut down on his INTs a little bit, I think he could be a 30 TD quarterback.

But yeah. Even with all that said, I'll believe it when I see it you know?

I agree with everything...I mean if the pieces come together the Lions could very well challenge the Bears for the NFC North......really
