WR Ja’Marcus Bradley
Unlike the first entry on this list, Ja’Marcus Bradley is someone that may stick around on the practice team. Bradley has a 4.4 40-time and was a Kevin Stefanski/Andrew Berry signing which helps. Granted, it doesn’t help much, but they liked him enough to sign him. So that may bold well for his future; to an extent.
Bradley played in three games for the Browns, catching five passes for 60 total yards. He split the rest of the season on and off the practice squad depending on need. Currently, he’s on such a contract (reserved/futures) which would indicate the Browns like him enough to keep him around but not enough to have him take a seat among the final 53.
Bradley’s stuck in a situation where the Browns just have too many bodies at wide receiver. Most of whom have higher upside or larger expectations than Bradley. That doesn’t bold well when you’re among that group and trying to find a foothold somewhere.
If the Browns making a shocking cut or trade during the preseason that involves Jarvis Landry or Odell Beckham, maybe Bradley stays around, but that seems rather unlikely at this point. By all accounts, Berry has been a straight shooter about how he handles things. If he says they’re not trying to trade someone, there appears to be stock in that statement. He’s made it clear that Beckham is part of the plans for now. Which doesn’t bold well for Bradley.
Bradley might get a shot to stick around if injuries mount but even then, he’s probably not the first option.
