Derek Anderson-signed for 2010 for 7.45 million with a 2 million bonus due in march-  I doubt we pick it up.

Marcus Bernard-free agent-  Sign this man, he came out of nowhere to help this team turn it around

Blake Constanzo -Free agent- He seems like a Mangini guy

Abe Elam- free agent- Mangini traded for him, if Mangini sticks around i expect a resigning.  We also have no options at safety 

Hank Frayley -signed for 1.63 million- I don't think we are cutting him, but wouldn't be shocked if we did.

Mike Furrey -free agent-  Ended the season as the starting safety.  I like his grit.  Keep around another season
  
Rex Hadnot -free agent- that improvement at the end of the season will get him a contract somewhere if not here.

Jerome Harrison -free agent-  Sign this man.  He can be good in this league.

DQwell Jackson -free agent-  I don't want to overpay to keep him.  He led the NFL in tackles two years ago but the defense sucked.  He going to want a lot of money and the defense was better without him.  That says something.

Jamal Lewis (retired) if not due 2.4 million  he is cut if he wants to come back.

Evan Moore -free agent- SIGN HIM!!!  He is what this offense needs, someone who can catch.

Brodney Pool -free agent-  Health is the question?  Is he playing football anymore?  How much do you play someone who is iffy on that question?  We don't have one starting safety from this season signed for next season except Mike Adams who started at CB to end the season.

Brett Ratliff -free agent-  Mangini's scout QB.  I thought he was there to get some playing time, but if he didn't with our QB play I think he is only a scout QB

Matt Roth -Free agent-  SIGN THIS MAN!!  The Browns went 4-2 when he was on the roster.  He had 5 sacks in 6 games.  Yeah keep him around.

Donte Stallworth -due 1.5 million- i expect him to be cut

Jason Trusnik -free agent-  If Mangini is back i expect him to be back

Lawrence Vickers -free agent-  This guy is a tank.  The running of Jerome Harrison is in large part due to the holes he punched open.

Browns expected free agents

geno...keep in mind that some of those players will only be restricted free agents, and therefore don't necessarily need to be signed to long term deals. 

I was going to post something to that effect, however the collective bargaining agreement has expired and is being negotiated.  The NFL had several games blacked out this year.  That means their product isn't selling like it used to.  I think an agreement is reached prior to the draft specifically so the 1st round picks paychecks are alredy assigned.  If that happens players union will want unrestricted free agency sooner.

Off the top of my head, Marcus Benard, Jason Trusnik, Jerome Harrison and Evan Moore are all RFAs in 2010.  Of those four, I would imagine that only Harrison gets any kind of long term offer from the team.  The rest will be tendered as RFAs and will compete for jobs next year.  If they have continued success, then they'll earn extensions from there.
