    Browns sign Benjamin Watson

    Watson, a free agent tight end who played his entire six-year career with the New England Patriots, has signed a three-year deal with the Browns. As first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter, it's a $12 million contract with $6.35 million guaranteed.

    A league source who confirmed the deal to PFT says the $6.35 million guaranteed will be paid out completely in the first year of the deal.

    The 29-year-old Watson played in all 16 games for the Patriots last season, starting seven and catching 29 passes for 404 yards and five touchdowns.

      Hmmm, $6.3 mil the first year. Thats 2.1 mil a game, seeing how he shows up for about 3 games a year.

    This is a match made in heaven! Watson can't catch a cold and Quinn can't hit an open receiver.

    $12 mill, $6.35 mill guaranteed? This is why the Browns continue to be one of the leaders in the league...in making bad business decisions. I wonder if Oakland was in the mix?

    JERH5, good math skills.  That about checks out for me, too.

    AHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! 13 MILLION? For Ben Watson?  Is that the going rate for a 30 TE that can't get open and has stones for hands, or are the Browns just that stupid.

    For that kind of money they could have had Scalabrine. Would have made about as much sense.

    The general consensus around here is that Watson blows, and while I don't necessarily agree with that, it's true enough that he either never realized his full potential in New England or the Pats didn't take proper advantage of his skill set or some combination of those two things. In any case, somebody is going to have to line up at tight end for the Pats (even if they're not actually involved in the offense). I wonder who that might be.











    Incidentally, I like the Brian Scalabrine reference: It's painful to watch him play, but I'll always remember him for this: "Ten years from now, nobody will remember that I never got off the bench, but I'll still have this ring."
