Cleveland Browns: Trade for Cam Newton

Cleveland Browns and the Carolina Panthers two teams that seem to never be able to get over the hump. Carolina has had better chances then the Browns due to their super bowl they had years ago. Browns are still living in the 60's with their wins. Browns have continued to live in mediocrity because they can't find a leader at the QB position. Browns have had over 20 different quarterbacks start for them since 1999 returning to the league. Finally both teams had a thought they were going to have good fortunes in the coming up years. Panthers have built a phenomenal defense and went to the playoffs this past year. The Browns didn't get into the playoffs but have shown the league they are trying to win games behind some strong players. Cleveland needs a quarterback in order to get over the hump and Carolina needs players on offense. Cleveland has a ton of draft picks and that is fire power for anyone.

I know most that read this article will be taken back by my idea. However I feel that Carolina just took a huge blow to their reputation in how they handled the entire Steve Smith situation. If I'm a player on the Panthers I would be wondering if they team had any loyalty. The original thoughts would be no, teams are all about making money and could care less about players. Steve Smith was also a big piece in why Cam Newton had the numbers he had as well. This hurts the entire team including their main weapon and face of the organization.

Nobody really knows how Cam Newton feels about Steve Smith's departure except for the normal things that he's supposed to say to the media. "It's a business" Of course it is and in this business players need to go to up and coming franchises or an established team. Cleveland is one of those teams, everyone believes that they are a quarterback away from doing some true damage. If the Browns can't draft well when it comes to the position why not trade for one? Why not trade for a franchise quarterback that's in his contract year and on a team that may have just pissed him off by giving away his biggest weapon.

Panthers are in danger of losing Newton via free agency if they don't do anything to bring him weapons or prove that they are willing to get to the next level. Most players now a days would love to win, especially for a quarterback they know the money will be there for them. This younger generation is all about what have you done for me lately and they are impatient. If Carolina can't build a team around him why should he show any loyalty and sign up for more years of mediocrity especially when he was so close to success.

I know your like what the heck??? Your talking about the Browns who has had plenty of years/lifetime of mediocrity. However, they are in a strong position to win and in a weaker division. They have a ton of draft picks an aggressive management team as well. There's a ton of things that are lining up for Cleveland and with the facts of them signing some big time free agents players might actually be changing their mind. Still the biggest thing is they have to win and Newton will most definitely take them there. Not to mention Newton and Joe Haden used to be roommates in Florida. Cleveland has the draft picks to make this happen and I know it sounds absolutely absurd I wouldn't shake my head or scoff at them trying to be aggressive and get it done.

Would you do it? I mean to actually think about it... I would rather have Cleveland make a trade then draft a possible bust again and again. Franchise QB's don't often get traded or leave... Peyton Manning, Drew Brees after the teams thought they were washed up. If this is a possibility shouldn't or wouldn't it be Cam Newton? Leave a comment below...

  1. This is the worst article ever written. You're a moron.

  2. Alright this is literally the dumbest thing I have ever read in my life. Please tell me you're kidding so I can pray for you tomorrow when I go to church. Are you smoking something? What's going on? I would like to know. Let me know on twitter: @Luuucey

  3. LOL no smoking... I don't think you read the points... its an idea and I think they should look into it regardless if its a trade or signing him in FA

  4. Never ever write another article again, The fact that you have made it this far in life allows for me to believe that there is a higher power.

  5. I could see Cam not wanting to return in free agency, a trade is a ridiculous idea.

  6. what team would allow a player like him to walk? they would want something for his value... a trade with a team that is stacked with plenty of them is not outside the norm. Scott Lee please leave the link to your articles so I can support your blog buddy LOL everyone can dish the criticism but i'm sure you don't write. Like I said in the article is sounds crazy but just think about it...

  7. This is one of the dumber things I've read in a minute. 1st of all the "aggressive" Cle front office just fired it's coach after one year and cleared Lombardi and Banner ads outta there after their incompetence. Did I mention that the owner is under FEDERAL INVESTIGATION! And who cares if he's roommates with Haden, that was years and 3 colleges ago. Newton understands football is a business and the Smith deal was inevitable. Newton is up for an extension soon and lookin at the Cutler deal he's gonna wanna get paid. Carolina won't let him walk. As your team has learned it's hard to find a quality qb. I could go on but my head is starting to hurt. What an asinine idea. Really?

  8. I bet everyone thought gettin rid of trent richardson was a dumb idea too...Btw the owner has settled the issues from his private he said he would...dont know what that has to do with football anyways....and as a browns fan im hoping they will explore any opportunities to make this team stronger...i would gladly give up a first, second, and fifth for cam newton...or even both first rounders and that would be all...carolina would get a deal there to be able to take a new qb as they are obviously in rebuild mode again and they woukd also get some other high picks...sounds like an idea worth exploring at this point after so many years of futility...and im willing to bet if it happened all of you would say it was a great deal

  9. Funny how some of you will bash the writer but probably have ZERO talent. Matter of fact all you that are bashing the writer lets see some of your work.....Go ahead I'll wait.
    Some of you suck at life and bashing somebody else is the only way you feel good about yourselves.

  10. Hi all. I read this website daily so I just wanted to chime in if ya'll don't mind!? An article like this, specifically the headline is an attention grabber to get people to read the article. While the author Lamont in this case makes some credible points as do the people who commented, I happen to like the last comment by Brandon the most. I'll personally say that you and everybody else are absolutely allowed to have and voice their own opinion. That's why there's a comment section and I think Lamont took his blows pretty well because you guys destroyed him lol. And while the article may not be the most credited on this site, it did it's job in creating a debate and controversy and even better may have opened up some people's eyes to the possibility of Cam Newton going somewhere else whether it's Cleveland, Minnesota, Tampa or wherever. I get the point of the article and I won't criticize the people who commented but Brandon has a point and I think some of you were a bit harsh. Like I said before, I really like this website as just about every article put out has a lot of thought and research out into it, or at least it appears that way. I consider myself an above average sports fan, that is to say I know more than an average man who will be turning 40 next year. Wow I'm old!!!!

  11. Wow, this article is beyond idiotic. This writer knows absolutely nothing about football or common sense. I wouldn't rely on writing as career choice if I were you.

  12. Great article!! I think a trade like this could benefit both teams. I thought I going to scroll down and find alot of browns fans eager to see if anything like this is actually in the works. But after reading all the comments I was shocked lol. I guess us Brown's fans have become so disgruntled that we will open fire on anybody putting together any situation that might actually lead to the Browns becoming relevant. I think this article was very thought provoking. If this was the dumbest article you've ever read, then it must of been the only article you've ever read.

  13. I really like this cause we got to let one go either Cam or Luke..... Hint QB cost alot so trade Cam plus Cam is pissed about letting the WR core go.

  14. I like it. agreed Daniel Ackerman and Brandon Houser, Browns would become instant contenders among AFC power teams. I say after they get Alex Mack agreed to terms keep 26th overall pick. Trade icks 4th, 35th, and 5th rounder.
