Convert Demetric Felton to just a receiver
One of us, one of us, gooble gobble gooble gobble.
…Sorry, what happened?
Demetric Felton would be wise to listen to the iconic chant from the 1932 film Freaks. Let the sweet siren song of the receiver corp waft into your ears and take hold. Mostly because we need speed on the edge.
Felton is a human Road Runner with his 4.5 40-yard dash. While it may not seem like the most elite speed in the league, he’s on par with Donovan Peoples-Jones, and faster than most of the other receivers. He’s been lined up in the backfield and that hasn’t worked out for him or anyone throwing to him. Using him in the situations the Browns do, mostly third-down stuff which sees reps taken from Kareem Hunt and that just doesn’t make sense (when Hunt is healthy).
So instead of finding reasons not to use Hunt, find reasons not to use Peoples-Jones or Rashard Higgins (or even Jarvis Landry). We’ve seen what the Browns receivers can’t do, let’s see what Felton can do.
Put him out on the edge and let him try to make some plays. He quite literally can’t be worse than Landry has been at points this season, so why not?
It seems like a desperate move but guesses what, the Browns are desperate.
