...New York time, of course.

per Gipper's important dates thread.....That's when Dorsey can be in contact with agents of perspective free agents....and then on the 13th at 4:00pm he can sign them....OR, he can trade for guys.

LAST YEAR at that time Dorsey knew that few free agents were going to WANT to come to Cleveland and be part of the perpetual dysfunction....so he brought guys in kicking and screaming (he traded for them).  That was brilliant.  (fortunately he had some draft capitol to play with)

THIS YEAR, will be somewhat different.  We HAVE what seems like a legitimate NFL QB.  (that's huge)  We have at least a couple of receiving weapons.  We have a running back.  We won some games while looking fairly good in the process.  We have an NFL caliber football team now.  We just need a few more pieces to the puzzle (in theory).  

I'll be very interested to see if Dorsey does any trading this time around since we are now a much more appealing destination to FA's.  Why....I wonder if Alex Mack would want to come back.  lol

It's officially the off season!   Go Browns!   Super Bowl Browns....Hell Yeah!  :)

Actually, my focus was a little narrower.  :)   The 3 days leading up to the start of the new season on March  13th  at 4:00 pm EST. (at least I THINK it will still be 'standard' time and not 'savings' time)

I'm guessing that Dorsey won't be involved with trades at 4:00 pm but will instead be focused on the free agents.

Tretter may not be quite as good as Mack, but he damn sure won me over this season.

...and from watching the Baker Miced Up I noticed that Tretter seems like a nice guy.  Of course that doesn't mean a whole lot.   (was basically joking about Mack wanting back in)
