As noted earlier, free agent RBs Robert Holcombe (Rams) and Michael Pittman (Cardinals) have already visited.

ClevelandBrowns.com reports the Cleveland Browns running back situation for the upcoming season remains a bit cloudy now that RB Curtis Enis has retired. RB Errict Rhett has the most experience but is returning from an injury he suffered last year while RBs Travis Prentice and Jamel White showed flashes of talent last year. The team also can throw RB James Jackson, a rookie, into the mix this year, too.
Wed, 25 Apr 2001 19:08:28 -0700

The Canton Repository reports when asked if RB Curtis Enis and Kevin Johnson had shown enough in min-camp to sway the Cleveland Browns from taking a RB or WR with their No. 3 pick in the NFL Draft, coach Butch Davis replied - "Nothing I would divulge today." DT Darrius Holland said the 330 pounds he is listed at is inflated. The Browns are hoping he can be their answer to the Ravens Sam Adams and Tony Siragusa at defensive tackle. One thing that is certain, his off-season workouts have left him with the largest arms on the team. LT Roman Oben wants to finish his career in Cleveland. Righ now he is under contract through 2002. Davis said OL Steve Zahursky is adapting well to the new steps and moves he is being taught on the offensive line.
Wed, 11 Apr 2001 09:44:37 -0700
The Canton Repository reports Cleveland Browns RB Curtis Enis continued to have a good mini-camp on day two. He's trying to prove to the team he can be their guy and that they don't need to spend the No. 3 pick in the NFL Draft on a RB. Enis said he feels fortunate to be on the Browns. He did caution people on the value of mini-camp saying, "This is like playing cards without the money." Mini-camp ends today, at which point the team will turn its focus to the April 21-22 draft. Coach Butch Davis has been impressed with the intensity level of the first two days of mini-camp, but he expected no less. Davis said TEs Mark Campbell, Rickey Dudley and O.J. Santiago will play the more traditional TE role while Aaron Shea and Mike Sellers are more H-back types.
Wed, 11 Apr 2001 09:38:54 -0700
The Beacon Journal reports Cleveland Browns coach Butch Davis is happy with the play of CB Corey Fuller, calling him "one of the best cover corners in the NFL." Davis was also happy with the catching abilities of WR Darrin Chiaverini and RB Travis Prentice. RB Errict Rhett continues his rehab from his foot injury. The Browns hope, but aren't sure, that he'll be ready for the June mini-camp. "This isn't a football injury," Rhett said at yesterday's minicamp. "It's a falling-off-a-horse-injury, a car-accident injury." If he's healthy, the team might feel a little more comfortable going to training camp with a group of Rhett, Curtis Enis, Travis Prentice and mini-camp standout Jamel White. If Rhett is not healthy, they may need to add to the position via free agency or the NFL Draft.
Tue, 10 Apr 2001 16:21:21 -0700
Zac Jackson reports for the Cleveland Browns official site the team completed the second day of their mini-camp earlier today. In between two practice sessions the players and coaches held meetings and film sessions. Coach Butch Davis said the players responded well to the challenges presented to them by the coaching staff. Among others, Davis praised CB Lamar Chapman, QB Tim Couch, WR Darrin Chiaverini, CB Corey Fuller, OT Roman Oben and RB Curtis Enis. He said Enis had his best practice so far and that he is geting "quicker each practice." The Browns have seven potential draftees scheduled for visits Wednesday night and Thursday including RB Deuce McAllister and WR David Terrell.
Mon, 09 Apr 2001 18:55:38 -0700
Zac Jackson reports for the team's official site the Cleveland Browns worked FB Tarek Saleh at linebacker during today's mini-camp session. He was a linebacker for two years with the Panthers but changed his position when the Browns selected him in the Expansion Draft of 1999. When asked about new RB Curtis Enis, coach Butch Davis said, "He did OK. Heís out of shape, but heís in twice as good a shape as he was a month ago when we first brought him in." Davis expects Enis to get better every day and knows he has the skills to make a difference. Davis singled out QBs Tim Couch, Ty Detmer and Kelly Holcomb, RB Jamel White, WR Bobby Brown, TE OJ Santiago, TE Rickey Dudley, DT Mark Smith, LB Dwayne Rudd and LB Wali Rainer as players he was especially impressed with on the first day of mini-camp.
Sun, 08 Apr 2001 12:45:47 -0700
Bill Rabinowitz reports for the Columbus Dispatch this week's Cleveland Browns mini-camp could help the team determine to what degree they need help at a certain position. "I don't know that it will have 100 percent impact, but it is definitely a factor," coach Butch Davis said. Davis declined to say which players have the most at stake this week, but it's likely that the team's RBs (Travis Prentice and Curtis Enis in particular), WRs (Kevin Johnson, JaJuan Dawson and Dennis Northcutt), safeties (Marquis Smith, Percy Ellsworth and Earl Little), CBs (Corey Fuller, Daylon McCutcheon and Lewis Sanders) and interior linemen on both offense and defense will get the most attention. Mini-camp will be run without pads so it is more difficult to judge the play of the linemen.
Mon, 02 Apr 2001 15:53:20 -0700
According to SportsLine.com's Len Pasquarelli, the Cleveland Browns appear to favor the addition of RB Charlie Garner over taking a back in the NFL Draft or trying to land another back in the free agent market. However, the Browns appear willing to wait a little longer for Garner's asking price to come down. They feel he and RB Curtis Enis would make a solid pair in the backfield. If the team lands Garner before the draft, they could turn their attention towards a big-play receiver like David Terrell (Michigan) in the first-round.
Sun, 25 Mar 2001 10:41:43 -0800
Tony Grossi reports for the Plain Dealer newly signed Cleveland Browns RB Curtis Enis is thrilled to be back in his home state of Ohio. "To me, this is where a lot of dreams started. This is where I want them to continue," Enis said. At the press conference announcing his signing, Enis sounded like a man who has been to football hell and back, and lived to learn from it. Enis said his best playing weight is between 235 and 240 pounds, which is about 10 pounds heavier than the Browns originally envisioned. FB/TE Mike Sellers will wear No. 44. Dwight Clark, director of football operations, said he timed Michigan WR David Terrell at 4.43 seconds in the 40-yard dash at his private workout last week. The team publicly says they have some concerns about his foot injury. Coach Butch Davis believes CB Daylon McCutcheon can be a starter, not just a nickel back.
Wed, 21 Mar 2001 00:10:59 -0800
As an update to previous report, the Cleveland Browns have officially signed RB Curtis Enis to a one-year deal. He'll have a base salary of $418,000 this year. As previously reported, there are escalators in the deal that could earn him up to $1.418 million this year.
Sun, 18 Mar 2001 15:31:10 -0800
The Morning Journal's Jeff Schudel reports the Cleveland Browns are reportedly trying to outbid other teams for the services of free agent OL Ross Verba (Packers). They want him to play right tackle for them. "Something will be done on the offensive line," team president Carmen Policy said. He expects other free agent OL to become available after June 1. Free agent G Tre Johnson (Redskins), who visited the Browns earlier, remains a free agent. Policy said the Browns have structured contracts, especially those of Tim Couch and Courtney Brown, so that they should still be in excellent shape cap-wise in 2002 and 2003. The team's off-season conditioning program begins tomorrow and DT Mark Smith and RB Curtis Enis are expected to attend.
Sun, 18 Mar 2001 10:45:34 -0800
Tony Grossi reports for the Plain Dealer due to the high price tags of free agent OTs Todd Steussie and Ross Verba, the Cleveland Browns are reconsidering inviting ex-Browns OT Tony Jones for a visit. He probably will visit the Browns this week. The team is hoping RB Curtis Enis can make a difference for them. He weighed in at 243 at his workout with the Browns. The club sees him playing in the 225 to 230 range. Although an offer sheet to free agent RB Corey Dillon (Bengals) has not been ruled out, nothing is imminent either. The Browns first contract offer to free agent TE Rickey Dudley (Raiders) was rejected by his agent. The Giants and the NFL have had no comment on potential tampering charges by the Giants on free agent DT Christian Peter.
Wed, 14 Mar 2001 02:30:27 -0800
Geoff Hobson reports for the team's official site the Cincinnati Bengals spoke with the agent for Tampa Bay free agent CB Ronde Barber and they continued their pursuit of free agent OL Ross Verba. They also attempted to get talks started with Steelers free agent LB Levon Kirkland, although a visit has not been scheduled yet. Lurking still in the background of all these moves is RB Corey Dillon. The Bengals have no comment about Dillon except to say they want him back. Some feel the Browns are putting a package together for Dillon while others feel the Browns signing of free agent RB Curtis Enis will end any pursuit of Dillon. Agent Ethan Locke would not confirm if the team made an offer for Barber. As expected the Bengals also talked to free agent CB DeRon Jenkins, formerly of San Diego.
Tue, 13 Mar 2001 00:45:15 -0800
John Clayton of ESPN, as a follow up to an earlier story, reports the contract agreed to by RB Curtis Enis with the Cleveland Browns is a one-year deal that has escalators that could allow him to earn up to $1.418 million.

He is also reportedly drawing some interest from the Chiefs.
Mon, 12 Mar 2001 20:29:34 -0800
SportsLine.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the Cleveland Browns, desperate for an every-down back, are taking the chance on one that has some potential. RB Curtis Enis, who was released from Chicago, has agreed to a one-year deal with the team. Financial details have not been released.
Thu, 08 Mar 2001 19:29:19 -0800

Tue, 06 Mar 2001 10:59:02 -0800
Updating previous stories, the Beacon Journal reports Cleveland Browns president Carmen Policy said RB Curtis Enis, released by the Bears, might be scheduled for a visit later this week.

Tue, 06 Mar 2001 03:37:49 -0800
Jeff Schudel reports for the News-Herald free agent LBs Twan Russell (Dolphins) and Darrin Smith (Saints) concluded their visits to Cleveland and both left town without signing contracts. The Browns would not confirm earlier reports RB Curtis Enis, released by the Bears, is visiting the team later this week. As previously reported, free agent RB Priest Holmes (Ravens) was in Cleveland for a visit earlier today. The fact they're closely at Holmes is an indication they are not 100 percent sure how Errict Rhett will come back from his foot injury.
Mon, 05 Mar 2001 03:11:02 -0800
Clark Judge reports for Fox Sports free agent LB Darrin Smith (Saints) reportedly is expected to be given an offer from the Browns. Smith played for Browns coach Butch Davis when he was the defensive coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys. He should be able to play all three LB spots for the Browns. One issue could be Smith wants to start and not come off the bench, which he could possibly do if he returns to the Saints. Free agent LB Twan Russell (Dolphins) is also a target to be signed by the Browns. The Browns are still looking for a RB, but finishing up their defensive moves is more important right now. They are now reportedly interested in bringing in free agent RB Curtis Enis for a look this week. They may eventually consider Priest Holmes (Ravens) as well in addition to Charlie Garner (49ers).
Sun, 04 Mar 2001 19:10:02 -0800
John Mullin reports for the Sporting News the Chicago Bears are hoping to replace G Todd Perry, who left for Miami, with Rex Tucker. Another possibility could be to move Jerry Wisne from tackle back to guard. After letting RB Curtis Enis depart and tendering RB James Allen only a one-year deal, the team may be thinking of taking a RB in the first round of the NFL Draft. LaDainian Tomlinson, Michael Bennett and Deuce McAllister are three backs the Bears like, but they may be hesitant to take a RB in the first round for the third time in seven years, especially with their bad fortunes with RBs Rashaan Salaam and Enis.
Sat, 03 Mar 2001 10:49:13 -0800
As an update to an ongoing story, Tony Grossi of the Plain Dealer reports San Francisco RB Charlie Garner is scheduled to visit Monday with the Browns, but coach Butch Davis is reportedly not completely sold on him. The team has a casual interest in working out Curtis Enis and is watching the Ricky Watters situation in Seattle. There are no plans at present to interview Bengals RB Corey Dillon.
Thu, 01 Mar 2001 10:50:27 -0800
The Miami Herald reports the Miami Dolphins are looking to add vetern help at WR. Although team officials can't comment, sources said the team plans to visit with several veteran free agents early in the free agent period including Dedric Ward of the Jets, Matthew Hatchette of Minnesota, James McKnight of Dallas and David Patten of Cleveland. Director of player personnel Rick Spielman did say it was a priority need for the team, "so we'll be bringing guys in over the first couple of weeks of free agency." Coach Dave Wannstedt said the team would "look into" signing former Dallas CB Kevin Smith. Smith retired briefly last season and did not play at all because of back problems. He told his agent he wants to play again. The coach said the team is not interested in RB Curtis Enis.
Tue, 27 Feb 2001 20:37:00 -0800
Len Pasquarelli reports for SportsLine.com agent Joel Segal, representing RB Curtis Enis, told him he expects there will be a "modest market" for his client. "Someone will take a chance because he's young and he has some talent. It will be a low-risk deal with the potential for high reward," Segal told Pasquarelli. Segal went on to say that no one really knows if Enis has the talent to make it in the league.
Tue, 27 Feb 2001 17:19:42 -0800
According to their official site, the Chicago Bears have decided not to make a tender offer to restricted free agent RB Curtis Enis. He is now free to negotiate with any NFL team. Bears VP of personnel Mark Hatley said the team looked over its' RB situation and decided to go in a different direction. "The main thing is that James Allen beat him out and that's the direction we decided to go."
Sat, 24 Feb 2001 18:45:57 -0800
Len Pasquarelli reports for SportsLine.com the Chicago Bears are expected to announce next week they are officially parting ways with RB Curtis Enis. He did everything the team asked him to do last season, including moving to fullback. Enis, who is only 24 years old and still possesses terrific, if undeveloped, physical abilities should get a shot from some NFL team.
Wed, 21 Feb 2001 22:32:54 -0800
The Chicago Tribune reports the Chicago Bears staff is at the NFL Scouting Combine which begins tomorrow. The only certainty about the Bears No. 8 overall pick is that they won't draft a middle linebacker. Most draft experts have the Bears choosing a defensive end or wide receiver with their top choice. If they go defensive end, they may be able to choose from Andre Carter from California and Jamal Reynolds of Florida State. The top two WR prospects, Koren Robinson from North Carolina State and David Terrell from Michigan may be gone before the team picks. Of course if the team does not re-sign James Allen or Curtis Enis they could go after a RB. In other team news, Jeff Joniak was named as the replacement for as the replacement for Gary Bender as the team's radio voice on WBBM-AM 780.
Tue, 13 Feb 2001 07:21:30 -0800
The Sun Times reports the Chicago Bears, looking for another RB, may need to turn to the NFL draft and not free agency. The retirement of Robert Smith and the Bengals transition tagging of Corey Dillon has limited the Bears free agent possibilities. Jerome Bettis is close to re-signing with the Steelers too, making the 49ers Charlie Garner and the Giants Tiki Barber the best available running backs when free agency opens March 2. However, Barber may re-sign with the Giants and despite Garner's agent saying his client has an interest in Chicago, Garner is not thought to be high on the Bears list. James Allen and Marlon Barnes 1-2 on the depth chart and the Bears want to add a third back. As previously reported, Curtis Enis appears to be on his way out of Chicago. The Bears may not take a RB with their #8 pick in the draft.
Sat, 10 Feb 2001 23:15:33 -0800
The Sun Times reports Chicago Bears VP of player personnel Mark Hatley is busy plotting the team's free agent plans. The team has enough cap money for one big contract for a big name free agent DE, TE, CB or RB. The other choice would be to spread the money around to fill several holes. If the Bears have to break the bank to re-sign DE Bryan Robinson, they are less likely to be aggressive on the open market. Hatley said said the Bears have no interest in former Green Bay TE Mark Chmura and that probably won't change. The team has confidence in head coach Dick Jauron, but the team must show improvement this season. The team is concerned because RB Curtis Enis has developed arthritis in his injured left knee. Trainer Tim Bream said QB Jim Miller, recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon, is ahead of schedule.
Thu, 08 Feb 2001 23:07:22 -0800
According to John Mullin of the Chicago Tribune, it is looking more likely the Chicago Bears will not offer a new contract to RB Curtis Enis. The Bears still have concerns over the health of Enis' left knee, injured midway through his 1998 rookie season. Personnel VP Mark Hatley said, "we haven't made up our mind yet." Enis' agent Joel Segal added all Enis needs is a chance to play. The Bears are considering signing RB James Allen to a long-term deal tendering him at the highest level, assuring themselves the right to match any offer or receive first- and third-round draft choices in compensation. The team also likes RB Marlon Barnes and would be comfortable going to camp with Allen and Barnes. Also, the Bears are talking about a multi-year contract for DE Bryan Robinson, a potential free agent.
Mon, 22 Jan 2001 23:27:03 -0800
The Chicago Tribune reports when the Chicago Bears promoted John Shoop to offensive coordinator earlier today, he also kept his QBs coach title. Shoop was a big backer of QB Cade McNown, but he lost some confidence in McNown late last season. Monday he would say only that McNown has "as good a chance as any to be the quarterback to lead this team." Shoop said next year's starting QB will be earned by performance. The Bears may still hang on to RB Curtis Enis even though he has expressed an interest in leaving.
Wed, 27 Dec 2000 14:37:32 -0800
The Chicago Sun Times reports the Chicago Bears, as expected, will have an open battle for the No. 1 QB job in 2001. QB Jim Miller (Achilles') is expected to be fully recovered by training camp and he'll battle with Cade McNown and a to-be-signed player. Head coach Dick Jauron stated he over-estimated where McNown was and where he would be during the 2000 season but stated he still believes he'll be a solid QB in the league. Jauron stated there isn't as much bad blood by the team's players towards McNown as has been reported but admitted there are some issues. Jauron also stated that he feels RB Curtis Enis, who played fullback this year, could be a solid tailback down the road... and maybe witht he Bears.
Wed, 27 Dec 2000 11:57:10 -0800
The Daily Southtown reports Chicago Bears RB/FB Curtis Enis' days with the team could be over. He's a restricted free agent who has complained publicly about his role as a seldom-used fullback and has stated that he is not interested in continuing in that role. The emergence of James Allen (290 carries, 1,120 yards) as the featured back means playing time for Enis would be hard to come by in 2001. But Bears coach Dick Jauron isn't ready to say whether or not the team's 1998 first-round draft pick out of Penn State will be back next season. Allen, also a restricted free agent, figures to be back, and he will have to fail or get injured for anyone else to get many carries.
Thu, 14 Dec 2000 07:29:27 -0800
The Chicago Sun Times reports Chicago Bears DE Phillip Daniels (sprained right ankle) has been placed on injured reserve. The team is expected to start Van Tuinei in his place.

Enis is expected to play this weekend after having to be admitted to the hospital due to a reaction to flu medicine last weekend.
Thu, 14 Dec 2000 07:28:45 -0800
The Chicago Sun Times reports Chicago Bears FB Curtis Enis hopes the Bears will be able to find a place for him in their new offense next year but admitted he wasn't crazy about having another different offensive scheme to learn. This will be his third offense in four years with the team. Enis would also like a chance to move back to tailback as he doesn't feel he can be effective when taken out of the position he knows the most.
Tue, 12 Dec 2000 15:43:14 -0800
According to the Chicago Sun Times, Chicago Bears DE Phillip Daniels (high ankle sprain) will miss the final two games of the year and is likely to be replaced by Van Tuinei. Troy Wilson may also see increased playing time on the defensive line. FB Curtis Enis (reaction to over-the-counter medicine) felt better on Monday but his status remains up in the air for this weekend's game. CB Walt Harris (knee) was able to work out on Monday but his status is also unknown for this weekend's game. Harris has missed the past two games.
Sun, 10 Dec 2000 12:28:57 -0800

Sat, 09 Dec 2000 15:13:49 -0800
The Chicago Sun Times reports Chicago Bears RB Curtis Enis, who has played fullback since week three, could be back in the Bears plans for the future now that offensive coordinator Gary Crowton had left the team. Depending on what offensive scheme the Bears go with, Enis may be sent back to the tailback position as the team isn't sure they want to give up on him yet.
Fri, 31 Dec 1999 18:26:29 -0800
The Chicago Bears have placed RB Curtis Enis on injured reserve and signed OL Keno Hills.
Wed, 29 Dec 1999 13:36:21 -0800

He's out this weekend and the Bears are expected to name RB James Allen as the starter. The MRI results were inconclusive for a rotator cuff tear, but Enis is still experiencing pain so the team has decided to go this route in hopes that he'll be fine long-term.
Mon, 27 Dec 1999 21:41:17 -0800
The Chicago Tribune reports the status of injured QB Cade McNown won't be known until later in the week after suffering a "strained right side" in the game against the St. Louis Rams. T James Williams reaggravated his injured left knee but will not have surgery until after the season and expects to play in week 17. WR Marcus Robinson's right quadriceps contusion is not expected to sideline him. More on the following players will be known later in the week; RB Curtis Enis and his strained left shoulder and hyperextended left elbow and Walt Harris and his strained right hamstring.
Fri, 11 Jun 1999 05:56:00 -0700
The Chicago Tribune reports RB Curtis Enis not only continues to rehab from his knee injury of a year ago, but also is turning his personal life around. He's no longer aligned with Grege Feste, the financial planner affiliated with the Champions for Christ; which is a Texas based religious group. He feels they used him for promotional purposes. "I think Curtis is really turning himself around, getting focused on the right kinds of things and not all the distractions," WR Bobby Engram stated. "Now I've got to go out and get some of that respect back for him and for one of the most highly respected franchises in the NFL," Enis said.
Thu, 10 Jun 1999 00:30:00 -0700
The Chicago Tribune reports RB Curtis Enis has trimmed his weight from 265 pounds in late April to near 235 with an aggressive workout and rehab program for his injured left knee. The team has told him that want him to be their every down back this year. "Coach (Dick) Jauron said, 'We don't want you to be a power back. We want you to be so we can use you every down," Enis said. "He asked me, I got (the weight) down and that was the end of it."
