BROWNS FLOATING BRAYLON?
We'd heard a rumor to this effect a couple of weeks back from a reader, but could never corroborate it. Per Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Browns have floated the names "Braylon" and "Edwards" (http://www.cleveland.com/browns/plaindealer/index.ssf?/base/sports/1177662877314860.xml&coll=2&thispage=2) to gauge possible trade interest.
As we'd initially heard the rumor, the thinking was Edwards and a third-round pick to the Vikings for the No. 7 overall pick in the draft.
Grossi also reports that the Browns would take receiver Calvin Johnson, if he's on the board when they pick at No. 3.
And that makes us wonder whether the Browns would package the No. 3 pick with whatever they could get for Edwards (and, possibly, Edwards himself) in order to move up in round one to get Johnson.

It might not be a bad deal for the Raiders, since they would come out of the transaction with Edwards and either JaMarcus Russell or Brady Quinn at No. 3.

If the Raiders could get Edwards and the third pick and who knows maybe somethign else, I would do it in a second.

I'd be curious to know if people here would trade No. 9 for Edwards and a 3rd. I suspect the response would be an overhelming "no." In reality, however, Edwards would be the clear No. 2 receiver in this draft, has done reasonably well in a bad passing offense in Cleveland, and would come without having to pay him a signing bonus (the browns would eat the bonus they paid him). With 2 2nds and 2 early 3rds, we'd then have a lot of flexibility to move up and grab someone else in the back half of the first if we wanted to.

I doubt the Browns are seriously looking to move Edwards.

I'd trade number 9 for Edwards and the Browns 3rd for sure. Then take a QB and OL in round 2.

I would in a heartbeat, Braylon is already a good WR IMO and he has all the tools to reach that Elite status
