I'd love if the Browns picked him up, but I dont think they'd need him. Their WR room is stacked.

Looks like I got my wish.  Now he just needs to battle that learning curve and make the roster.

New Orleans Buckeyes?

Why not?

Nothing cleanses the soul like a no call pass interference.

Maybe it’s time he moves into fashion - he’s a very fashionable guy

Rewatched 2015 vs V Tech. He had an amazing game. 

Michigan sucks

His best game*. And then Eddie and Timmie started working their two seasons of magic. Not.

I think Braxton would be better suited to play RB, but he couldn’t take the hits consistently.

Good, another reason for me to hate the city of Philadelphia.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.

Been watching the CFL for a few years now.  It’s a fun brand of football for which his skill set is a great fit.   I feel like he might be more likely to go the XFL route and attempt to use it as a springboard like a few of the guys did with the AAF this year but it would be fun to watch him in Canada too.

No shit especially now that Odell's replacement has been suspended 4 games for shooting blanks lol.

Would be a good slot guy for the Patriots.

Patriots want precise route runners. Dependable dudes that are always going to be in the right place at the right time. I'm guessing both of those areas are where Miller's struggled the most in making the transition. 

He's got the athletic ability, but we all know it takes way more than that to make it as a WR in the league. That goes for every position.

Technically that should preclude Josh Gordon from making the team.  Rather than being in the right spot on the field, he is usually taking in the group meeting at rehab.

I'm so sick of that guy.  He's now on his 27th "chance" with the NFL.  How he was reinstated yet again is indefensible.

Didn't the Pats sign Michael Floyd years ago (aka the guy who got so drunk when he was with the Cards that he was found passed out behind the wheel in the middle of a damn intersection)? Top that off with Josh Gordon and I'd say the Pats are all about their reclamation projects. Belichick has pounced on players that have failed with other organizations on numerous occasions.

He's so dynamic in the open field. Maybe try returning kickoffs and punts?

HS

Given all the gruesome injuries Braxton has suffered throughout his career I'm not sure returning punts would be the smartest career decision for him.

The Bengals could use more playmakers...

Braxton wouldn't make the final roster in Cincy either. The undrafted crop of WRs we brought in this year has been downright impressive in preseason so far and Braxton is nothing more than a glorified gadget guy. The Bengals wouldn't have much use for him either (he most certainly can't replace a talent like AJ, don't make me laugh). The last thing we need to be doing is bringing in more WRs right now IMO. Now if we're talking FA LBs or OTs I'm all for it (in fact I think bringing in a FA LB is a downright necessity at this point). But our WR room is kind of crowded atm.

Can't believe no team has figured out the best way to exploit that level of athleticism.

Thought for sure my Eagles would get him on the field in some capacity and make an opposing defense pay a time or two.

Best of luck Braxton.

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

It sounds to me like Braxton is still completely clueless when it comes to route running (and even as a gadget player in the NFL that's kind of important). And to think some teams were looking at him as a potential first round WR talent in 2016. His production during his one year at WR at OSU was not great. It doesn't surprise me at all that he's struggled since he got to the NFL.

I mean had he made that flip to WR as a freshman or sophomore it's probably a different story.

Kind of surprised he wasn't getting looks as a running back and return specialist.

Very possible. As far as returning kicks goes given all the gruesome injuries he's suffered in his career I think for his own well being he should refrain from that line of work. Returning punts is a dangerous, dangerous job. Parris Campbell basically had to give up doing return work when he was at OSU because he suffered multiple concussions from big hits he took on returns and Braxton has a much more extensive and brutal injury history than Campbell does.

I’m hoping him Cardale and JT are all XFL bound. I’d like to watch them all play again

How much weight did Braxton lose after Meyer took over the Buckeyes? It seemed he lost a lot of weight and there was some poking fun of him during the ESPN special. 

When I looked at Braxton, I never looked at him and thought, "Overweight."

Brax went from ~210 to 180 to play WR.

Not sure where those numbers come from, but Braxton dropped from about ~215-220 to 205 to play receiver. Link

This is definitely where I parked my car.

Thanks Cooper was purely going off memory...and apparently I am getting old.

Gives you some idea on how hard it is to switch positions and be successful, I think people think moving to wide receiver is easy, just like watching golf, how hard could it be? Tate is less of an athlete than Braxton so do not think that experiment in Miami is going to go well
