Ward on Browns' radar

By Marla Ridenour Published: February 20, 2009

Coach Eric Mangini might have crossed the line of the NFL's tampering rules when he said Friday the Browns were interested in New York Giants running back Derrick Ward. Free agency doesn't begin until Feb. 27, so technically Ward is still the Giants' property. ''He's a guy that we’d look at. I can tell you, we’re looking at all the free agents,'' Mangini said. ...

Mangini mentioned that receiver/special teams ace Joshua Cribbs might be tried on defense. ...

Mangini is still looking for a receivers coach, the last spot he will fill, which means Wes Chandler will not return. ...

Linebacker Willie McGinest has not filed his retirement papers, Mangini said. ...

Mangini said quarterback Derek Anderson is no longer dealing with the MCL sprain that ended his season. ...

It has been rumored that former Browns coach Romeo Crennel has decided to join Kansas City in an unspecificed capacity. Mangini said he talked with Crennel after his recent hip replacement surgery and said he thinks there's still a chance Crennel will stay in Cleveland.

''I would love to have him be with us, but if he makes a different decision, then I would support that, too,'' Mangini said.¶
