Cleveland Browns: Center of Attention

The Cleveland Browns have once again made a move in attempt to fill their void at the center position. Since the injury to LeCharles Bentley on the first day of camp, the Browns have taken a look at six different centers to replace their prize free agent, Pro Bowl center. Their latest move brings six-year veteran Hank Fraley from the Philadelphia Eagles for an undisclosed 2008 draft pick.

At 6-2, 300 pounds, Fraley brings a wealth of experience to the offensive line. He had 71 career starts at center for the Eagles and was an important member of the line that paved the way for the Eagles during their prime over the past few seasons. With just one week before the start of the regular season, Fraley will compete with Lennie Friedman for the starting center position.

Fraley was an undrafted free agent out of Robert Morris University in 2000. He’s a hard working player who recently saw time at guard with the Eagles during the preseason. He brings value to the team with the ability to play multiple positions on the line. While Fraley looks to be a great fit to fill in for Bentley as the starting center this season for the Browns, he is also a talent that Phil Savage and Romeo Crennel may be able to use in the long-term once Bentley returns next year.

This move illustrates that the front office is trying hard to show fans that the Browns are making a push to put the days of 4-12 or 6-10 seasons behind them.

    Nice write-up. News of the Fraley trade hadn't broke yet when I saw reports that Tucker had been cut.
