2. Equanimeous St. Brown could be another Cleveland Browns deep threat
Yes, the Cleveland Browns are deep at wide receiver and they did just cut KhaDarel Hodge who was a special teams ace for them. He could also get deep at times, which is something they need more of.
That’s why it could make sense to consider adding Equanimeous St. Brown who was just released by the Green Bay Packers on Tuesday.
Cleveland has made an effort to get faster on the outside and they hope Odell Beckham, Jr. returning from an ACL tear will help with that. They also added rookie Anthony Schwartz in the third round. We didn’t get to see much from Schwartz in the preseason due to an injury but he played some against Atlanta.
He’s a work in progress but he can take the top off. As can St. Brown, who also offers some elite size — which is something this Browns receiving corps doesn’t have.
Listed at 6-foot-5 and 214-pounds, St. Brown towers over most cornerbacks but he can still run past them, as evidenced by his 15.9 yards per catch career average. He never really lived up to his potential with Green Bay but he did flash as a rookie with 328 yards on 21 receptions.
He missed all of 2019 due to an ankle injury and then when he returned in 2020, he was farther down the depth chart which dropped his targets and eventually led to his release. A change of scenery could help him and the Browns might like having a massive target with speed on the outside for Baker Mayfield to work with.
