Donte Whitner agrees to 4-year, $28 million deal with the Browns.
The Browns have officially moved on from potential franchise defender T.J. Ward as Whitner slides into Ward's strong safety role. Something tells me that Ward was no longer interested in coming back to Cleveland when he heard Denver was interesting in his services. Whitner is a still a young (28) above-average safety. ANALYST:
Whitner will join Joe Haden in the Browns' backfield, and rumors are swirling that the Browns could be in on the Darelle Revis sweepstakes as well. Looks like the Browns are intending to field the best defensive backfield the game has ever seen. ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Jeremy Langford had 30 snaps compared to 37 for Matt Forte on Thursday night.
On the one hand, Langford has played well enough to earn increased playing time, as he became the first Bears rookie running back with rushing touchdowns in four consecutive games since Walter Payton. On the other hand, Matt Forte was playing for the first time since spraining his MCL, and his limited work load could be a result of wanting to ease him back into action. We will have to see how the snaps shake out in Week 13 before we can draw too many conclusions. Analysis: Steve Pimental
