Classic Cleveland: Browns embarrassingly mess up trade deadline

The Browns reportedly disputed the proposed trade with the National Football League, saying it should be allowed even though it arrived a few minutes late.

The Browns were reportedly sending the Bengals a 2018 second and third round pick for the quarterback and then they remembered they were the Browns and good things aren't allowed to happen to them.

The Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns failed to work out a trade that would have sent quarterback AJ McCarron to Cleveland for two undisclosed draft picks, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Never in the 50 years of the franchise has a Brown, Paul or Mike, done a trade with Cleveland, the old or new Browns. Meanwhile, the Browns did not.

Officials with NCIS confirmed Navy investigators are now responsible for the probe into the strangling death of Staff Sgt. He declined to address how Melgar died, saying NCIS does not discuss the details of ongoing investigations.

Sidenote: Cincinnati.com notes the Browns were willing to move a 2nd and 3rd for McCarron, which is obviously more than the 49ers gave up for Jimmy G. Again, Browns. It's certainly is possible, but with the way the Browns have been run over the past several years, they don't get the benefit of the doubt in this situation. At the moment, though, the quarterbacks in Cleveland are still DeShone Kizer, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan.

But McCarron, with three National Football League starts along with a post-season start, apparently has value. It's abundantly clear in light of Tuesday's fiasco.
