Although the Cleveland Browns came away with a Week Three victory over the Minnesota Vikings, things didn’t go so well for recently signed running back Willis McGahee.
McGahee, who was signed late in Week Three to replace the traded Trent Richardson struggled in his fourteen snaps, only rushing for eight yards in the process with a missed block or two.
Clearly unhappy with his performance, McGahee says there will be a ‘dramatic improvement’ when he takes the field this weekend:
Per Mary Kay Cabot:
#browns Willis mcgahee on being here for full week now: “there will be dramatic improvement. I’m going to have more than 8 yards.”
McGahee, who was let go by the Denver Broncos during the preseason will be going up against a stacked Cincinnati Bengals defense, so expectations may need to be tempered.
He should see more carries in addition to more snaps this weekend, especially now that he’s had a chance to learn the playbook, but it may not translate to much more success given the tough matchup.
