why would he want to go with the Browns?? hardest division in the NFL
Hardest division? Maybe last year.
Ray Lewis is retiring, their offense is mercurial and Flacco might not be their QB in 2014, let alone 2013.
Steelers might lose their OC for the 2nd year in a row, Heath Miller just tore 2 or all 3 of the major knee ligaments in the final game of the year, Wallace might not be on their team next season either. Their defense is crumbling as no one can stay healthy and is only getting older, nobody registered more then 5 sacks. They have no running game and will probably let Mendenhall walk
The Bengals are a wildcard contender with a mercurial running game and their defense will not generate the same kind of pressure every season like they are this year.(See 2011 & 2012 49ers as a perfect example).
The Browns could very easily and immediately vie for wildcard berth with nothing but better coaching and consistency on defense.
