So the latest rumor is 5 teams have enquired about Jonathon Stewart (Panthers) with one of them being Cleveland (again).....so is it fair to say that Cleveland is hard up for a RB and likely will get one pre-draft?

7:22PMest:3/23/12:**UPDATED NFL RUMORS**Sources: We have 5 teams that have called about Jonathan Stewart (RB - Panthers) the most interested teams so far are the Broncos (Offering 3rd & another later pick) & now the Browns, who jumped in the past 24hours.. Cleveland also has interest in Forte but the price is still a little high so they are giving themselves multiple options at this point. The other 3 teams are - Giants / Patriots / Steelers (Pittsburgh loves him) but are being held hostage by the Wallace contract talks.

I wouldn't mind Kalil but do you guys think the Vikings will pass him up?

I wouldn't. lt is their biggest need. But Claiborne would be a good pick too.

Go Bucs

I think Forte is not in play. Barber was on his last legs and it isnt like Forte is a pillar of health either. Bush was a great signing but have no doubt, Forte isnt going anywhere. I also wouldn't read into this as the Bucs wanting to spend a 1st rounder on Trent Richardson. You don't spend a top five pick on a player who will be on the field half of the time. The pick will be either Claiborne, Kalil, or Kuechly (my personal pick). 2nd round will be a RB....hopefully LJ.

Bush got a back up contract. Forte isn't going anywhere.

Draft Aaron Donald

   While I'm a huge fan of Forte's overall game, there is a lot of wear on those tires. A few years ago, I'd have grabbed him in a hearbeat, but not a good fit now...

It is possible, so Kalil would be sweet.  8)

If we were so lucky to have Kalil fall to us he would have to be the pick without question. Not only would he be such a huge upgrade over Trueblood at RT, but we would have an amazing O-line locked up for the next 4 years. You can debate whether we'd need to eventually move him to LT and trade Penn or whatever, but the bottom line is that as the #5 pick he would make less than Trueblood is and we'd have a stellar O-line for the next four years....and eventually Kalil probably moves to LT and plays there for a decade.

Draft Aaron Donald

Forte would make this offense elite. To do that for 2 seasons or more (make playoffs, possible SB) and it only cost a first rounder? Pfft, I'm game.

..I think we did something similar to that with another guy several seasons ago? I'm not so sure it worked out though ;). Anyway, he was a good coach.

Seriously though, at this point I believe it's Forte, Stewart, or TR. Pick your poison.

Schi doesn't give two-sh^ts and a rat's ass about Blount imo (he didn't bring him in), and he wants a rungame that needs a stable. Blount's talented, no doubt, but the guy cannot do all the things Schiano will ask of him. 30+ touches per game during the course of a whole season will leave us with ...Madu.

You bring in Forte, Stew, or TR and both Blount and whoever will last longer as a bonus.
