Cleveland Browns Sign Miles Austin - Wide Receiver


The Cleveland Browns continue to upgrade their roster at wide receiver. After signing a number of intriguing receivers following the draft, undrafted free agents, the Browns have now added 2 WRs with starting experience. Earlier today we covered the Earl Bennett signing. Now the Browns themselves have announced the signing of Miles Austin:

Austin has been a starter for years with the Dallas Cowboys but has struggled with injuries in the last few. The 8 year veteran only had catches in 11 game last year. The previous year he caught 66 and has a career high 81 catches in one season. Austin is not a big play receiver but more of a chain mover. When healthy he will provide the Browns with another solid player to help Brian Hoyer, Johnny Manziel and the Kyle Shanahan offense. He will be a high level contributor, again if healthy.

The Browns may not be done, but rumors of trading both 2015 first round picks for Andre Johnson seem unfounded.

What are your thoughts on the Miles Austin signing?

    They passed up better receivers than this guy in the draft.
    No improvement made to the team signing this guy. Is this the best we could do?

  • Richard Ciesielski

    I think its a decent pick, hopefully Miles gets a chip on his shoulder like he has a lot to prove. Clevelands new motto has to be Play smart, play healthy prove everything and believe in the team and don’t do anything illegal. When in doubt as your coach.
