    Browns right tackle Ryan Tucker will be suspended for the first four games of the regular season for a violation of the NFL steroid policy Tucker will continue to practice with the team and will participate in preseason games, playing on the second and third units, according to head coach Romeo Crennel.
    The immediate plan is for Kevin Schaffer to move from left tackle to right tackle to replace Tucker and for top draft pick Joe Thomas to move into the starting job at left tackle. Crennel pointed out that if Kelly Butler proves to be a better right tackle, Schaffer could move back to the left side and continue to compete with Thomas.
    Crennel said that Tucker's status with the team would be re-evaluated after his suspension.
    Tucker left the team on two occasions last year for an undisclosed mental illness

    I don't know about this guy, but isn't everyone break dancin' in the street's that we didn't draft Brady Quinn? Can you imagine the distraction if he were holding out with us, and he would be!

    I would be ready to lynch quinn.. and the publicity would be 50X worse than it is now because number one he is on the cowboys and number two T.O. is on our team

    Oh, boy.
    Every day there is some new drama/problem in Cleaverland.
    Boys, I do believe the Browns are headed to 3-13 land this year.

    ....and imagine when Braylon Edwards or Winslow get hurt again which, if history is any indication, one or both will.

    Is this the same Tucker that played for us at RT when Campo was coach, the guy that had the heart episode? This suspension would explain some things if so.(and no, I'm not referring to Torrin Tucker)

    ever since the browns skipped town and became the ravens......they have had success.....they have had the top defense in the NFL over that span and they have a SB....

    meanwhile back in that trash dump known as C-town......mediocrity knows no bounds. hey at least the Cavs made it to the finals, only to get swept by my Spurs...

    the poor browns...high draft picks year after year....freakish injuries....prima donna holdouts....freakish illnesses.....sewage pipes breaking in their lockerroom.....suspensions....

    this team is the Arizona Cardinals of the AFC.....

    I honestly feel very bad for them right now....Modell skipped town and stole their Mojo.

    Let's just hope it stays lost for 1 more season. They can have all their Mojo back in the 2008 season.

    Who I feel bad for is Crennell. He is going to be fired after this year, and Vince Lombardi couldn't win with this team.

    This isn't Ross Tucker, but it is the guy some people were hoping we'd bring in last offseason before we knew Colombo would be anything. We didn't sign him because we supposedly didn't like his attitude, and I think he was asking for too much money. But you wonder if there were any suspicions about 'roid use, too. I've always thought GMs probably gossip about such things.
