    Browns have seen enough from Earl Bennett

    The Browns might not have Josh Gordon for the year, but they’ve begun sifting through the imported replacements.

    The team announced they’ve terminated the contract of wide receiver Earl Bennett.
    They signed Bennett a month ago, but apparently saw enough in a short time to know he wasn’t going to be of help.

    Bennett had been occasionally productive with the Bears, but was a salary cap casualty this offseason.

    Now this is a little surprising but maybe that's why the Browns are the Browns. There are few guys in the NFL who are more sure handed than Earl. If he'd accepted a pay cut he'd still be in Chicago. I wonder what's next for him and furthermore if the Bears will have an interest if the price is right now that Hixon is done for.

    I liked Bennett.

    Are the Browns just too dumb, or is there more to this story?

    It's Cleveland, it's where players go to die

    I think this is really just proof that Earl wasn't near as good as he needs to be for the money he wants.

    I hope, he catches on somewhere. Maybe the Vikings or Packers will pick him up.

    I think he'll get a shot somewhere, but it'll be as the 3rd or 4th option, he's just not a 2 and really is barely a 3, you saw it here last year and now the Browns who need a 1 or 2 saw it.

    Look for him to get picked up in a already deep WR core, maybe w/the proper cut in pay he'll end up back in chi town.
