The Cleveland Browns have signed wide receiver Braxton Miller, which comes at an awkward time due to the team completing training camp and going into their third preseason game Friday versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Browns have done a great job of adding overall depth to their football team including the wide receiver core that already has Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway (suspended) to name a few.
Ohio State Buckeye’s fans (which many Browns fans are), know the kind of potential that Miller has. However, he hasn’t shown in it in the NFL. Miller was a third-round pick by the Houston Texans in 2016 and has appeared in 21 games with nine starts.
He has 34 career receptions for 261 yards and two touchdowns. He was later waived by the Texans in 2018 and has only been a member of the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad since.
The Ohio native is excited about being a member of the Browns and just overall happy to be home. “It feels like I am home. It is good to be out there with new teammates,” stated Miller. “They brought me in like I was here already.”
Playing close to home was very important for Miller. Although he had a couple of options as far as teams to play with, Cleveland was his choice all along.
“Being closer to my son and my family and being able to play for my home state, that is one of the things I always wanted to do,” stated Miller.
Previous regimes in Cleveland’s history haven’t been too fond of signing Ohio State players in the past, which is puzzling knowing the NFL talent that the university has produced. This time under GM John Dorsey, it’s different after drafting the former popular Buckeyes’ cornerback Denzel Ward fourth overall last year.
It seems like a long shot for Miller to make the team but if you’re into comeback stories, this will be an interesting one to keep your eye on.
