    With Josh Gordon potentially facing a suspension, Cleveland needs help at wide receiver. Miles Austin will provide just that. The Browns announced today that Austin has agreed to terms. Austin has spent his entire career in Dallas, and the Cowboys said this week that they were interested in bringing him back. Instead, he’ll head to Cleveland, where he could be the No. 1 receiver if Gordon is suspended. Right now the receiver depth chart after Gordon is thin, with Greg Little, Andrew Hawkins, Nate Burleson and Travis Benjamin as the top four.

    He pulled both his hamstrings signing his contract, and was placed on IR immediately.
    Jihad Joe and Walnuts like this.

    Hard to even call it a boom bust pickup at this point in his career but I guess theres still some potential for a couple games contribution before he's IR'ed.

    Hes done. Wasnt any good last year when he was healthy. Has no explosion off the line anymore and cant fight through tackles on shorter routes

    Don't think it's a terrible signing... Keep him around until they figure out what to do with their WR position...
