It appears that Derek Anderson is not going to get the long-term deal he sought from the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland is now expected to tender Anderson at the highest level – he would be offered a one-year contract worth $2.5 million, and other teams would be able to negotiate with him. Cleveland would have the right to match any offer, and would get a first- and third-round pick in compensation were Anderson to go elsewhere.
So there’s the question: Is Derek Anderson worth a first- and third-round pick? Intriguing…
Update: The Browns have reportedly offered Anderson one last three-year deal. GM Phil Savage says that if Anderson turns this down, he probably will not be back. The Browns will accept a first- and third-round pick in compensation and begin the Brady Quinn era.
