The less said – or in this case written – about it, the better.
The Browns have signed free agents Kellen Davis and Chris Owens to one-year contracts.
Don’t get too excited about these signings. In fact, don’t get excited at all. Both are underachievers.
Davis, 27, is a 6-7, 270-pound tight end who has trouble catching the football. And Owens, 26, is just another small cornerback.
Davis certainly is a big enough target, but you’d think that after five National Football League seasons, he would have more than 47 catches for 529 yards. He doesn’t seem to be the type of tight end who fits in a Norv Turner offense.
The Browns need size in the secondary, especially at cornerback. So they go out and sign the 5-9 Owens. Makes perfect sense. This is the guy, by the way, who lost his job last season as Atlanta’s nickelback. What are the football guys in Berea thinking?
And they’re reportedly hot after Brent Grimes, another cornerback. He’s a whopping 5-10 and will be 30 years old in July. Oh, and he’s coming off Achilles’ tendon surgery.
When are the Browns, namely Joe Banner since he’s taking credit and blame for all things Browns these days, thinking? Doesn’t he realize wide receivers are bigger and faster these days? Why go after midgets?
Summing it all up: Davis, Owens and maybe Grimes. Big whoop. More like big yawn.
