Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers.
Well, that was….not…really…that good.
With cuts coming sometime today (deadline is 9pm), the Browns got their final look at several players last night. What they saw might not have been very impressive.
WINNER: Brandon Jackson. Jackson looked strong and determined running the ball. He even seemed to be enjoying himself out there. Of course, Jackson really wasn’t fighting for a roster spot. I bet he is getting more and more fans in the coaches office for the 3rd down back duties.
WINNER: Adonis Thomas. Thomas did nothing to hurt his chances either. Even if he doesn’t get the nod over Chris Ogbonnaya (who I remind you doesn’t even block a defender’s view), he put a few good runs on tape for another team. He will likely get a practice squad invite given the injury concerns.
LOSER: Montario Hardesty. Yes, I’m a little running back heavy. During a sideline report, Mark Schwartz when trying to find something positive to say uttered this line- “at least Montario Hardesty didn’t fumble tonight.” Yep. Low expectations.
LOSER: Craig Robertson. Robertson got a lot of playing time, and didn’t take advantage in my opinion. Saw a couple missed tackles, and even the plays he did make were way down the field. Benjamin Jacobs’ plays on special teams may have hurt him as well. Still a better than half shot he makes the team though.
Alright, I’ve rambled on enough. I think I left some meat on the bone for you.
