Browns Close To A Deal With Anderson

Browns General Manager Phil Savage said that the Browns and QB Derek Anderson are close to a three year deal.

"Talks have been a little more frequent in recent days," Savage said in an e-mail response. "It seems that the three-year deal is becoming more the focus. We've had pretty good dialogue and will continue over the [NFL scouting] combine."

I don't know if Anderson was anything more than a passing interest to the Bears, but I think Anderson is making a huge mistake if he takes a three year deal.  The fact that it is three years heavily suggests that they just want him until Brady Quinn is ready.  Unless Anderson turns into a top 5 QB, I don't think his value is going to more than right now.  He has the opportunity to parlaying last years success into a long term starting job.
