1. Braxton Miller, WR
Another player trying to make this team also happens to be a newcomer. Shortly after being released by the Philadelphia Eagles, former Ohio State quarterback-turned-receiver Braxton Miller was signed by the Browns. He was brought in just before their Week 3 game and was able to get in on the action as he caught two passes for 11 yards.
That may only be a sign of things to come as the team seems set on giving him a shot to make this roster. In fact, the staff seems rather intrigued by what he brings to the team.
"“I’m looking forward to seeing him play Thursday,’’ Kitchens said of Miller via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. “I’m looking forward to seeing a bunch of these guys play. The funny thing about competition is you are either exposed or you get exposure.” “Competition brings that to the forefront. When you start talking about a preseason game, that is the ultimate competition.’’"
Interestingly enough, Miller could find himself taking on the aforementioned Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi for the final spot. Both players are able to contribute on special teams, but Miller is clearly the more polished receiver at this point in their respective careers.
Cleveland also was willing to part with Jaelen Strong not long after signing Miller, showing they do have some faith in him to win a spot.
Even with that being said, he still needs to go out and prove he belongs int he team’s final Preseason game against Detroit.
