New Cleveland Browns general manager cast veteran receiver Kenny Britt aside quickly after taking control of his new job, and he’s now made a series of moves that shook up the bottom of the team’s roster.
New additions to the team’s 53-man roster include defensive end Lavar Edwards, receiver Matt Hazel, and offensive lineman Geoff Gray. To make room for the new signings, the team announced it waived receiver Bryce Treggs, defensive end Tyrone Holmes, and defensive tackle T.Y. McGill.
The team also added offensive linemen Laurence Gibson and Ian Silberman to its practice squad and released offensive lineman Korren Kirven from the squad.
Gray is a 6-foot-5, 315-pound rookie offensive lineman from Manitoba, Canada. He signed with Green Bay as an undrafted free agent before spending this season on the New York Jets’ practice squad.

The lack of production has raised concerns that Maclin and quarterback Joe Flacco lack chemistry, but Maclin rejected the premise.
“I’m not going to sit here and say that there is or whatever,” he said after Wednesday afternoon’s practice. “But for whatever reason, especially in the last game, it just didn’t click. I’m not going to beat myself up about it. That’s what preparation is for. So we’ll continue to go out there and continue to get on the same page.”

Cincinnati Bengals’ lack of energy starts with Marvin LewisWatching the Cincinnati Bengals play football can really be a chore. It’s either due to mistakes or horrendous offensive game plans.There’s even the occasional lack of concentration (just kidding). But, lately, there seems to be no fire or passion when they play the game. And in a sport that demands the emotional equivalent of a hard rock concert, there’s no room for being flat.
