ATENEARS Posted April 25, 2010 Report Share Posted April 25, 2010 The only addition the Browns have made to a pretty poor Receiving core is yesterdays 6th Round pick Carlton Mitchell from South Florida. Tony Grossi reports that the Browns 2009 leading receivers (Jerome Harrison & Mohamed Massaquoi) had 34 catches. That's the lowest total to lead the Browns since the NFL went to a 16-game schedule in 1978. Even the 1999 expansion Browns had three players with 44 or more catches. Grossi & Mary Kay Cabot both seemed to emphasis Josh Cribbs playing a bigger role with the receiving corp, perhaps this stems from Holmgrems/Mangini's/Heckerts Press Conference? (I didn't hear it all, I don' know), but the fact hat they are both now singing this same tune about Cribbs must mean they heard it from the source somewhere. In my opinion, Josh Cribbs is not a receiver to penciled in here. He is a package guy that can be tossed in to create mis-matches at times, but we are joking if this is all we got to bolster up a very weak 2009 unit after the departure of Braylon Edwards. Only name being thrown around in the veteran department is Mangini's ex-Jet (and Bengal in 09) Lavranues Coles, who got paid HUGE last year in Cincy. This is of Major concern and is today's biggest need by far. I don't know much about Carlton Mitchell, but in this picture he looks like he can drop the football as good as anyone we have.
