Practice squad candidates No. 9, 10: Shaun Jolly, Herb Miller

Both Shaun Jolly and Herb Miller played well enough this preseason to earn their way onto an NFL roster. Browns’ general manager, Andrew Berry, is going to have to hope that no one noticed either of the promising young cornerbacks. But the Browns cornerback room is among the deepest in the league, and the Browns decided to only go with five in that room to start the season.

Each of the past two years, Cleveland went into the season with six corners on their initial 53-man roster. However, this year the Browns went with an extra safety at the cornerback’s room expense. It’s unknown which player between Jolly and Miller was the unfortunate one to ultimately get squeezed out in the roster crunch, but both clearly belong on NFL rosters.

Miller brings extra value because of his special teams’ experience, but Jolly displayed a propensity for making plays at the slot corner position.

At the end of the day, it is a numbers game and sometimes quality players like Jolly and Miller find themselves without a seat when the music ends.

If the two corners are to somehow miraculously go unclaimed in the waiver process, the duo should be a priority to get inked to the practice squad.
