Here's a fun little clip of Jadaveon Clowney at Browns' camp.  Watch it all.    

Do you just copy and paste these posts and just change the names every year?

Agree that Jacob Hollister looks like he'd contribute.  

Height/Weight: 6’4” 245 lbs

Age: 27 (28 on 11/18/2021)

2021 Season outlook: Hollister is a good athlete (4.64 40-yard dash and a 36.5” vertical at his pro day) who has shown that he can produce with some opportunity. At worst, he is a better replacement in single tight end sets for Dawson Knox than someone like Tyler Kroft or Lee Smith, the two tight ends Buffalo allowed to leave in the offseason. With such a strong receiver group, expecting a tight end to do more than catch 35-40 passes in a season is setting the bar far too high, but if Knox falters, Hollister can step in and provide the Bills with steady play.

Wild. Not like they’re deep at WR. AGG had a decent preseason too. Joe….?

more likely possibility- they also cut Jimmy Moreland, slot CB who showed well imo and played feisty. 

was about to throw up the Paradis symbol... too slow. 

any "witch" proclamations yet?

TE, UNSIGNED FREE AGENT

Texans waived TE Ryan Izzo.

Izzo - 6’5” 255lbs. FSU - was acquired from the Patriots in March but is unable to crack GM Nick Caserio’s first roster. He caught 13 passes on 631 snaps last season in New England.

Mclaurin is a beast. Samuel is very good. Dyami looks like another steal at WR. Humphries is solid and Cam Sims is likely their #5. Not to mention Logan Thomas has emerged at TE. Mckissic is an excellent pass catching back and Antonio Gibson is looking like a stud RB. WFT is more loaded on offense than many are giving them credit for. 

 

I guess  they've come a long way in the past 5 months. Not like AGG has made an impression. All the talent, seems to lack a 3rd gear and get DBs off that stayed draped on him. Too bad.. 

Dyami Brown a steal? We'll see. He never had a problem looking good in drills and open field catches.

WR, UNSIGNED FREE AGENT

Packers waived WR Equanimeous St. Brown.

6’5” 225lbs. Notre Dame

The No. 207 overall pick of the 2018 draft, St. Brown did well to stay on the 53-man roster as long as he did, especially after missing all of 2019 with an ankle injury. St. Brown also spent time on I.R. last year with a knee issue, though he did return for the Packers' receiver-desperate roster. One month shy of his 25th birthday, St. Brown heads out into the great unknown with just 28 career receptions. His Packers/Aaron Rodgers connection will probably get him a workout or two, but his phone won't be ringing off the hook. He might end up on the practice squad in Green Bay.

It's always weird to see some of the draft darlings of the past two years getting cut in preseason.  

"Oh yeah!  That guy!".

 

I took Curtis Weaver in the second round of the JN mock 2 years ago.

Hollister is likely returning to the Bills. They do this frequently where they have a handshake deal that they will re-sign a vet after cutting him so they can put someone on IR (doing that prior to the 53 cut down means they have to stay on IR the whole year). 

Hollister is Allen's former teammate in college. I doubt outside of offering him silly money that he would actually be willing to sign.

Browns waived WR Ja'Marcus Bradley. 

The Browns have also waived S Elijah Benton, TE Jordan Franks, OG Colby Gossett, DE Porter Gustin, LB Willie Harvey, WR KhaDarel Hodge, DE Joe Jackson, RB John Kelly, QB Kyle Lauletta and DE Cameron Malveaux. CB Brian Allen, DT Sheldon Day, LB Elijah Lee and WR JoJo Natson were released. A 2020 UDFA out of Louisiana, Bentley made an emergency late-season start in 2020 as the Browns were racked with coronavirus. He will presumably remain a practice squad candidate.

Giants released DE Ifeadi Odenigbo. 

It's surprising after the G-Men guaranteed Odenigbo $1 million in free agency. The author of 10.5 sacks over the past two seasons for the Vikings, Odenigbo will certainly get another look on the open market. He should make regular season appearances for someone in 2021.

If I had Fant signed I was drafting Wirfs, not Becton.  Wirfs is a pros pro.  Becton is a freak of nature, but a mess.  

Wirfs plays right tackle with a QB who can get rid of the ball in 2 seconds

 

 

Becton > Wirfs

No homer

Sarah Lee had better chance than D Lee ( tiny lb) of making the Raiders 53 man roster.   Good luck D Lee - shoe Rt lb have no reason to be in the NFL.

You haven’t seen the Linebacker position played in football until you watch a mediocre Tight End run circles around Darron Lee

OG/C

 

This cut makes no sense. He was a ‘19 4th rounder from Ohio State with 19 NFL starts?!?

Claim him with 2nd waiver priority NOW and you still have him for peanuts on a rookie contract for ‘21 and ‘22. 
 

CLEAR UPGRADE over any other G we have on roster now - that includes AVT who is yet to show he belongs (I’m a fan,  but until the real bullets fly, we’re yet to see)

Good move for the Giants 

That’s going to be a high 4th rounder that can be bumped up to a 3rd. Good trade for Balt. Giants got fodder: a player Ravens dumped and 2 picks Gettleman will screw up. lol

4th round pick does not mean much cam clarke was a 4th rounder.

Also Burrow was in a body cast in pat due to rush up the middle.

I will cede to your comment though if you have watched him a lot in college and like him as a player.
