One league source told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he expects the Browns to pursue a trade for Ryan Mallett.
Another source, however, said Patriots coach Bill Belichick "won't part" with Tom Brady's backup. That could change if Matt Cassel becomes available -- he will -- and replaces Mallett behind Brady. Cleveland would have to fork over a second-day draft pick or perhaps two of them because last year's second-rounder was used on Josh Gordon in the Supplemental Draft. Mallett would be a solid fit for new Browns coach Rob Chudzinski's long ball-based vertical attack.
