Cleveland Browns Notes, Quotes 2009-03-13
--Dawn Aponte has been hired by the Browns to be Vice President of Football Administration. Aponte will oversee the management of the salary cap and be the lead on contract negotiations.


Trip McCracken had been in charge of salary cap management and contract negotiations. McCracken is still in the front office, but he will be working under Aponte, a three-year veteran of the NFL Management Council after working nearly 15 years in various capacities with the Jets.

--Sean Jones, the Browns starting safety since 2005, signed a one-year contract with the Eagles. The Browns did not make a serious attempt to re-sign him before or after free agency began.

--Brady Quinn was asked on ESPN's "First Take" what he would say if management told him the Browns were thinking of signing Owens.

"That's tough. I think you should just leave that up to Coach Mangini and (General Manager) George Kokinis. Quarterbacks are greedy, so I think any time you have a talented player like T.O., you'd probably think, 'Oh, yeah, bring him on.' (But) we have tremendously talented receivers. We're pretty comfortable where we're at."

--The Browns draft fifth in the first round and fourth and 18th in the second, giving them picks 5, 36 and 50. Last year those picks were: (5) defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey of LSU by the Chiefs; (36) defensive back Brandon Flowers of Virginia Tech by the Chiefs and (50) wide receiver DeSean Jackson of California by the Eagles.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "They had a down season. Everybody has down seasons, but that's a defense that has some spark and they've got guys like D'Qwell Jackson that I watched play at Maryland. He's a pretty darn good linebacker. To play alongside him would be another good scenario." -- Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry on the possibility of being drafted by the Browns.
