Rise and Shine Browns Fans, another Hump Day is upon us!!
Well, you can now say another Browns quarterback has exited stage right, but not to injury or a freak accident. The
Browns released recently signed quarterback Caleb Hanie on Tuesday and signed running back Edwin Baker off the Texans’ practice squad.
It was no surprise that the Browns would release Hanie, considering quarterback Alex Tanney, must stay on the roster for a minimum of three weeks after being signed off the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad.
The release of Hanie means quarterback Brandon Weeden must be getting closer to being cleared from his concussion.
Edwin Baker(5’8, 210lb) is a first-year player out of Michigan State. He spent the first 11 weeks of the season on the Broncos’ practice squad and the past three on the Texans’ practice squad. He was signed, in part, due to the concussion suffered by running back Willis McGahee, who must now go through the NFL’s concussion protocol.
The Browns also re-signed linebacker Justin Staples to the practice squad and released linebacker Jonathan Stewart from the practice squad.

Dawg Pound Daily Biscuits this Week
Browns kicker Billy Cundiff on whether is leg injury had any baring on the missed field goal at the end of regulation on Sunday. “I don’t think it had any effect on the final field goal but 24 degrees and 58 yards had more of an effect on it,” he said. “My calf cramped but we got it settled and it went away enough for me to go out and give it a good shot on the last field goal.”
Browns defensive back Jordan Poyer on the perception that the Browns had all the calls go against them on Sunday in New England. “We are on the road. We cannot expect any calls to go our way, especially when you are playing the New England Patriots. You just have to keep playing and fighting and get back to practice this week. I feel like we’ve got a good group of guys and we’ll get the focus going.”

Browns safety T.J. Ward says he had to hit Rob Gronkowski low: “If I would’ve hit him up high, there’s a chance I was going to get a fine.”

>It’s a shame Ward still needs to answer questions about the hit on Gronkowski Sunday. This is the new NFL where defenders are forced to hit low, so they aren’t subject to fine and in some cases, suspension. It was a clean hit, leave the guy alone!!!
