PostSubject: Browns like Graham Harrell, but don't offer contract   Wed May 06, 2009 12:21 pm

Browns like Harrell, but not enough to offer him a contract

By MJD

Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach's anger at the NFL draft process is well-documented. After Michael Crabtree went 10th in the draft and Graham Harrell went undrafted, Leach blasted the NFL as a whole, saying that they're bad at drafting quarterbacks, and also took shots at Cleveland coach Eric Mangini.

So, let's check in with Harrell and see if he's setting the world on fire yet. The Cleveland Browns invited him to their rookie minicamp, and according to Mary Cay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, they liked Harrell. To a point.

The staff felt Harrell, who participated in rookie camp on a tryout basis, picked up the system quickly and has great potential, the source said. However, the team let him leave town without a contract, in part because it currently has four quarterbacks on the roster: Brady Quinn, Derek Anderson, Brett Ratliff and Richard Bartel.

So, kind of a mixed bag there. They said they liked him, but they didn't give him a contract, because they already have guys like Brett Ratliff and Richard Bartel. That's kind of like a girl telling you, "Oh yeah, I really think you're a sweet guy. So, yeah, I'll be over in the corner making out with the guy in the upside-down visor."

Harrell says he's got offers from a couple of other teams to attend their minicamps, too, but his preference would be to stay with the Browns. The Browns don't look like they share his vision, at least at the time being. But hopefully, he'll catch on somewhere.

That's bullshit. I bet Harrell could outplay at least 2 (maybe even 3) of the quarterbacks currently on that roster.

Kid had a tremendous career at Texas Tech, and I think he could really bloom in the MLB.

i think the browns made a dumb move not signing Harrell, all 32 teams were dumb skipping over him in the draft and thats why he went to the CFL. He'll tear that league up for a couple years and he'll be tearing up the NFL once he gets the chance

He shoulda been offered a contract. You can't tell me there are 32 teams that are so good that they don't need a QB like Harrell, not even as a backup.

Yeah, seriously. I can think of a few teams who need a backup QB right now. Patriots, Giants, Bills, Falcons, Chargers, Colts.

Most of those teams got great QBs but dont have good backups and they could of signed Harrell to have some insurance at the position

Harrell could probably start for the Bills.

Trent Edwards is not that great.
