Browns general manager Phil Savage said Thursday on his weekly radio segment on WTAM-AM that contract negotiations have begun with the agents for quarterback Derek Anderson and running back Jamal Lewis.
''We've had some things going on underground for the last week or so,'' Savage told the Browns' flagship station. ''It's really just in the beginning stages. Those are the top two priorities, so we're off the first tee.''To read more or comment...
While the Browns could use at least two linebackers and two defensive linemen in the draft and free agency, the focus of the off-season will be the futures of quarterback Derek Anderson and running back Jamal Lewis.

Even in that instance, he could still be traded.To read more or comment...
