Browns interested in Gocong

Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post is reporting that the Cleveland Browns have had "preliminary discussions" with the Eagles about acquiring linebacker Chris Gocong.

Former Eagles GM Tom Heckert is now in Cleveland and the Browns use a 3-4 defense, which is a much better fit for Gocong's skill set.

Rookie Moise Fokou supplanted Gocong on the strong side for the Birds last season and is likely the top option to start again. Gocong's lone strength, rushing the passer, is lost in the Eagles' scheme so a new address would be a good idea for both sides.
