With the injuries to wide receivers Martavis Bryant and Jordy Nelson, head coach Jon Gruden said the team would be working out some receivers to look for a replacement. Well, we know who a few of those players were.
One of them is familiar. It’s Griff Whalen, who spent the offseason with the Raiders and was released on August 28 with an injury settlement.
Two others were former Vikings receiver Charles Johnson and former Eagles third round pick, Josh Huff. This according to Adam Caplan.
