The Cleveland Browns are going to take a chance on a very talented receiver that has had a very hard time establishing an NFL career, and that receiver is Jaelen Strong.
Strong was originally a third-round pick in the 2015 draft by the Jets before he was traded to the Texans during the draft and he spent two full seasons playing for the Texans before being waived just one game into his third season in Houston and then being picked up by the Jaguars and subsequently waived after one game before being cut and added to the Jaguars practice squad multiple times before blowing out his knee and being out of football this past season.
During his Texas career, Strong made 28 catches in 19 games for the team, racking up 292 yards receiving and catching three touchdowns.
In his one game in Jacksonville Strong made three catches for 38 yards and a touchdown.
This isn’t a bad flier to take if you’re the Browns because he won’t be expected to come in and be a starter but he is a talented wide receiver who was good during his college career at Arizona State and if he can figure out a way to stick in Cleveland, he could be a useful target for the Browns to have as Baker Mayfield develops.
