    Browns cut Greg Little 2011 2nd round WR. Has suffered from drops and mental mistakes but still had 700+ yards as rookie and 600+ yards in 2nd year. He sucks but he's better than our current stable of 4th string WRs. Better than Kenny Britt too.

    Rams cut Daryl Richardson 2012 7th round RB. Richardson had a good rookie campaign as a change of pace back but was hampered by injuries last year. Maybe take a look to replace Jackie Battle?


    Both are currently on waivers.

    Greg Little was hands down the Browns worst player in 2013.

    As for Richardson, pass, noting special there.

    Is Richardson better than Jackie Battle though?

    Youre better than Jackie Battle.

    I'd see if Little passes waivers, probably not, but he is worth keeping an eye on.



    I'd say it is about even, I'd prefer to keep Battle because of Greene's potential knee issues. Two different types of running backs.

    Battle can be useful as our 3rd/4th and short guy to just lower his lead and drive into the pile for the first down. I know most of you guys hate him, but if they can just improve his vision a bit the dude is a bull. We have plenty of run-of-the-mill backs like Greene, Sankey, Washington, McCluster. Battle is one who actually brings something else to the table.

    Battle was awful against starting competition last year though. He was good in preseason against third stringers.

    he was a 1 or 2 week wonder in the regular season last year, then, by midseason or so, was pretty horrible.

    Our WRs are actually looking really good... KW/Hunter/Nate thats a solid trio if you ask me. You give those guys to good QB, you'd be hummin another tune buddy.

    Our current number 4 is actually also very intriguing. I really want to see what Preston can do, he definitely impressed me when he started a couple games.

    I also felt D-Will when we had him was extremely underrated.

    KB, i don't know wtf happened with him, talk about fall from grace. As it pertains to us just another 'potential' that never panned out (heck, never got close). He also robbed snaps from Pres and D-Will.

    Sankey isn't a short-yardage battering ram by any stretch. Greene is hurt and I'm not convinced he'll ever contribute again. Battle can fill that role (maybe).

    Richardson certainly can't. He's not an inside runner. He's tiny.
