1B-2. Cameron Erving
It’s already been a forgetful year for Erving.
He hasn’t been able to block ANYBODY, and he suffered an unfortunate collapsed lung on Sunday–but he was released on Tuesday. The entire offensive line has been retched these first two games, but most of the pressure has came through the A and B gaps. That’s Erving’s responsibility.
I don’t want to pile on Erving since that has been done enough by his own play, but the only thing I can see keeping him on the team is moving to a different position. He played a few games at guard last season and was just as bad.
The only spot left would be tackle. He already has the size, just not sure he possesses the strength or athleticism to do it.
Sunday’s game was easily the worst game Erving’s played in his 18-game career. He missed all of his assignments, got bull-rushed on almost every play, and couldn’t even hold the double team against opposing linemen.
It was just an embarrassing performance by an NFL center. He cost the Browns a 25-yard gain on an amazing catch by rookie Rashard Higgins after Hawkins bobbled the ball. He was an ineligible receiver downfield.
He then suffered his original injury by whiffing on a cut block on a screen pass to Johnson. Erving is still in the Dawg House this week, but he’s going to have company this time. It’s not known what the future may hold for him, but he must do some soul-searching in order to remain on the team, and in the NFL.
