"It was totally unexpected. It really put us in a vise." "He passed every medical check we had and never spent any time in our medical room. He never even had an ice pack on his back."

Patrick McManamon, of the Akron Beacon Journal, reports Cleveland Browns OC Bob Hallen could decide retirement is the best option for him. As noted earlier, head coach Romeo Crennel said Hallen has personal and physical issues. The physical issues are Hallen's back, which will be examined in San Diego by the same doctor who treated him last season when his back acted up. The personal issues apparently deal with the back pain, and whether he wants to keep playing. The issues apparently are wrapped together, and Hallen has much to sort out, including retirement. "I think he wants to be a starter," Crennel said of Hallen. "That's what I thought. That he accepted the challenge and tried to do the best he could." Crennel said he would be open-minded if Hallen wanted to return, but it did not sound like that was certain. "If he's better than what you have on the team, you have to consider that," he said.
