Pat Shurmur was pretty blunt with the media today. After watching it, he still somehow seemed to come off defensive too, which is ponderous after a game like the Browns played yesterday. Still, he seemed to intimate that Greg Little’s spot on the active roster on gameday could be in jeopardy if he continues to drop the ball.
After talking about Greg Little and his posing antics and indicating that he’d talked to Little, Shurmur spoke a little bit more generically when he said, “We can’t play a guy that’s going to drop footballs.”
Little dropped one officially yesterday, but two if you count that weird play where Weeden’s pass went through Little’s hands and into the arms of Josh Gordon. Little has also struggled holding onto the ball much of the time since the beginning of last year.
Although slight of frame, Jordan Norwood is probably one of the more polished receivers on the roster. While his ceiling isn’t thought to be as high as Greg Little’s with the larger, bruising frame, there is very little question about Norwood’s route running or catching abilities.
