1. Braxton Miller, Wide Receiver
Lastly, we have Braxton Miller who was a shocking cut as the Browns moved to 53 players. Looking at Miller’s stats it would make sense that he had a hard time making the team as he’s struggled to make an impact in the NFL since being selected in the third round by the Houston Texans back in 2016.
Miller, a quarterback who transitioned to wideout as a senior, spent two seasons with the Texans and had just 34 receptions for 261 yards and two touchdowns. He then spent all of 2018 on the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad before being released on August 17.
Cleveland then added Miller four days later which made it seem as though there was a role in mind for him, even if he hadn’t had success in the past. He was also on the field quickly and they tried to feature him on offense and even had some success with him in the screen game.
With all that going on, it seemed as though there was a plan for him with the team in 2019. There was also a belief he would be able to help on special teams, but in the end, that proved not to be the case though as the former Ohio State star was informed of his release shortly after the Taywan Taylor trade went through.
With all this being said, the Browns could still be making moves as the 53-man roster is anything but final.
