* It is being reported that the new Cleveland Browns Director of Football Operations (Team Czar) Mike Holmgren has decided to keep Eric Mangini as the head coach for the 2010 Cleveland Browns.

* Cleveland Browns (WR/KR)Joshua Cribbs will now formally request a trade from the team after they only offered him a slap-in-face offer of $1.4 Million a year as a “reward” for basically being the best all around player on their team. He is insulted, as he very well should be after breaking the NFL record this season for 8 kickoff returns for touchdowns. Not too mentioned he racked up 516 combined yards receiving and rushing on a offense that was flat out terrible. He also added 1 rushing TD, and 1 receiving TD. That’s fine though….just trade him so he can help a football team that could really utilize his talents, and pay him respectably for them. Two teams with reported interest are the Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers.

*It seems as though the relationship between the Broncos and (WR)Brandon Marshall has finally ran its course. I have a feeling that he will be playing for a new team in 2010.

* Something to keep an eye out for, is if the Jets decide to extend (WR)Braylon Edwards, whom they acquired from the Browns in 2009. If no collective bargaining agreement is reached, instead of becoming a unrestricted free agent, he would become a restricted free agent, meaning the Jets would have the right to match any offer another team(s) would put in for him.

* Rams (QB)Marc Bulger is considering retirement.

* Former Bills Head Coach Perry Fewell, has interviews lined up with the Chicago Bears, and New York Giants for the position of defensive coordinator.

* The Buffalo Bills head coaching vacany has brought up the names of Brian Billick, Bill Cowher, Brian Schottenheimer, Marty Schottenheimer, and others. First they will be interviewing with the Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.

* Now that Mike Shanahan is the new Redskins head coach, will we see him try to pull the trigger on a trade for his former Wide Receiver in Denver, Brandon Marshall? Just a thought!

* Reportedly Mike Shanahan isn’t too high on his (RB)Clinton Portis. He needs to see him have a big offseason, in terms of conditioning and team activities to remain a member of the Redskins. If not, then a trade or release, I imagine would be likely.

* There are some reports that the Titans are going to purge many familiar faces on their roster before the 2010 season.

* It is rumored that Arizona Cardinals back-up (QB)Matt Leinart will be replaced this offseason, and the Cardinals will look to find a new “franchise” QB.

* Last week, Baltimore Ravens back-up (QB)Troy Smith requested he be traded in the offseason because he wants to be a starter in the NFL. He said he will do his job to try to help the Ravens get back to the Super Bowl in any way he can, but unless (QB)Joe Flacco gets injured, their isn’t much Troy Smith will be able to do. He may draw interest around the league though, and with (QB)John Beck already on the roster, it seems very possible the Ravens could get something in return for (QB)Troy Smith. He is an intriguing option.

* Cleveland Browns new team president / director of football operations may look to trade for a familiar friend this offseason, in Seattle Seahawks (QB)Matt Hasselbeck.

* Former Saints and Rams head coach Jim Haslett may end up on the Washington Redskins staff.

* Former Browns head coach Romeo Crennel reportedly has interest in the New York Giants and Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator positions.

* The front runners for the Chicago Bears offensive coordinator position are Mike Martz, Perry Fewell, and Jeremy Bates.

* Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan reportedly would like to keep around (QB)Jason Campbell for the 2010 season.
