boy, did the Browns ever mishandle this situation. if they had traded him a year or two ago, they could have had a #1 draft choice for him. oh well, that's why they are the Clowns...
Derek Anderson is done in Cleveland
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 9, 2010
Derek Anderon's rollercoaster career in Cleveland has come to its logical conclusion.
The Browns released Anderson Tuesday, well aware that no one wanted him via trade with a monster roster bonus due in ten days.
The Oregon State product was picked off the waiver wire in one of former G.M. Phil Savage's best moves, and made the Pro Bowl in 2007 on the strength of vertical passing and an easy schedule.
Things fell apart dramatically since, as Anderson's accuracy and decision-making were among the league's worst the last two years.
