Browns had better win big on Brock Osweiler gamble … or else

They’d better hope it was Moneyball, because even beyond the first glance, it smells more like Sam Hinkie than Billy Beane. The cost of blowing this deal — wherever it takes the Browns — is so high it could actually take them back not only to where they started, but behind that.

Which is saying a lot about a team that had recently planned its future around Johnny Manziel.

And having lots of draft picks matters only if you use them wisely.

Branden is an experienced left tackle, Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said of the two-time Pro Bowler. He will compete for the starting role and has proven over his 120-game career that he has the mental and physical tools to excel in this league.

The play of the offensive and defensive line will be of significant importance to our organization’s success and the acquisition of Branden Albert is a step in that direction.

The Jaguars have not made the playoffs since 2007 and have won just 11 total games since drafting quarterback Blake Bortles third overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. This year will essentially be a win-or-else season for Bortles, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract.

Former Jaguars coach Tom Coughlin, who is now the team’s executive vice president, understands the clock is running.

The Jags are not in rebuilding mode, but are wisely using their cap space to overhaul the roster. They were praised last year for having a very good offseason. Winning another offseason won’t mean much if it doesn’t translate to wins this fall.
