Browns regime change keeping Greg Little in Cleveland


There was some speculation that Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little was headed out of town. Though now it is hard to tell who is staying and who is going in Cleveland with all the upheaval in the front office. That upheaval might be what helps keep Little in Cleveland actually.

From KFFL:

The Cleveland Browns had once targeted WR Greg Little for release because he has underachieved, but ESPN.com reporter Pat McManamon said in a recent mailbag that Little may be a better fit for new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan’s scheme and may stick around for the time being.

McManamon wrote:

I’m no longer convinced Little doesn’t come back. He may fit with Shanahan’s offense, and the Browns may give him a second look. No matter what happens, let’s just say that some things are bigger than any one single player.

Now NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport is repeating those sentiments, whether they’re his own beliefs or regurgitation is up to you.

Little caught 41 passes for 465 yards and scored two touchdowns in 2013.

    Browns would be better off without Little.
    He simply can’t consistantly catch a football.

    Little’s problems have always been mental…. Sometimes, that can be corrected. He’s a beast of a specimen and has value if they can get him to in the right state of mind, where catching is automatic.
