Wednesday, March 30, 2005 - As Reuben Droughns got the news he has waited for the past two months, defensive end Ebenezer Ekuban was flying to Denver. Today, the players' paths may officially cross in a trade that would also send Cleveland defensive tackle Michael Myers to Denver. Ekuban, 28, took a physical with the Broncos on Tuesday to check out his recently repaired knee and shoulder. Droughns is set to arrive in Cleveland today for a physical.

March 29, 2005 - Sources have told FOXSports.com that the Browns and Broncos are in deep talks regarding a trade that would send last year's Broncos breakout back Reuben Droughns to Cleveland for defensive end Ebenezer Ekuban. Ekuban, the former first-round pick, had surgery recently on his knee and shoulder and is not expected to be healthy until May. He is expected to visit the Broncos this week, but due to the health concerns, the two sides have discussed working out appropriate draft choice compensation for the 2006 draft if Ekuban cannot return to full strength in time for the season. However, if Ekuban's physical pans out well, the two sides may agree to a straight up player-for-player deal without any stipulation.

Tuesday, March 29, 2005 - Auburn's ground duo of Carnell "Cadillac" Williams and Ronnie Brown weren't the most accomplished tailback duo on the college level. But the history they make could arrive draft day if both go as high as many draft observers expect. Williams and Brown didn't win twin Heisman Trophies like Army's Glenn Davis and Doc Blanchard did back in the Black Knights' 1940s glory days before their pro careers were tabled by the five-year service commitment that follows matriculation at the Academy. But like Blanchard and Davis of six decades ago, Brown and Williams could also be dubbed "Mr. Inside" and "Mr. Outside." Brown played his career at Auburn at a thick 224 pounds, while Williams darted through defenses at a leaner 205.
