I assumed they would keep him (wasn't his contract fairly cheap?) to work in the rookie Njoku gradually and use some 2 TE sets, but I guess the Browns have different ideas.

Wouldn't mind the Fins taking a look personally. He had a very productive 2015 campaign, but struggled as a blocker in 2016.

I'll miss you Gary. Slowest TE of all time but caught everything.

The writing was pretty much on the wall, but it'd be interesting to see what he can do with an actual QB.

I know they just got the rookie but figured he'd make a good duo for Kizer

he's a pro's pro. they did it to allow him to try and find a new home with a contender. the guy is a class act. while in Cle, he would run twitter contests every Thursday and take the winning fans out to the movies. He will catch on somewhere.

Nah, not the slowest. He isn't a speed guy but he is a fast slow guy. He has soft hands but still occasionally drops catchable passes. Makes some crazy good catches. I suspect he will start or get significant playing time somewhere.

What was the upside to cutting him? Seems there was no real reason.

We have a poster with a source claiming that he became a cancer once he got paid.

He went to my highschool. I wouldn't mind seeing Jacksonville pick him up.

Probably a couple reasons. We drafted a TE in the 4th last year and a first this year. Both he and njoku aren't good blocking TEs so you can't really play them together. And age.

With having two young/new TEs youd think itd behoove the Browns to keep Gary around as a veteran presence or atleast cut him at the end of training camp to help get them acclimated to the NFL.

He was an effective player for the Browns, got to think a team needing a decent Tight End will sign him.
