The Cleveland Browns, who have gotten uneven play from Colt McCoy, have given mixed messages about their plans, but they appear to have the best package of draft picks to make a deal to draft Robert Griffin III happen.
We started to look ahead to the NFL offseason as soon as Billy Cundiff's field goal fluttered off-target and we will dive headfirst into the offseason two weeks from now when the scouting combine begins in Indianapolis.
