Keep #2 – DE Cameron Malveaux
It’s impossible to deny Cameron Malveaux at this point. While he’s done most of his work against second or third-string offensive linemen so far, he’s at least shown he can be a disruptive force at some point, which is something that Curtis Weaver has yet to show against anyone, let alone the backups or the backups’ backups.
Malveaux had a great game against the Falcons, continuing a radically different preseason from Weaver, one that saw Maleveaux be a disruptive force, especially on Sunday. The former Cardinal and Dolphins’ player had four tackles on Sunday night, alongside two sacks. He easily could have had two more but the Falcons got away with holding him on two different downs.
The most egregious coming in the second half, where one of the Falcons offensive linemen had such a bad hold on him, you can hear both Malveaux and the Browns’ sideline screaming “HOLDING!” while Malveaux runs with his hands up, showing the obvious hold.
No flag was thrown.
Malveaux has shown to be far more than competent on the field and has a non-stop motor. While this is the only game he recorded any sacks in, Malveaux was disruptive all preseason long, especially against the Giants where he really got after the Giants’ quarterbacks.
