Former Browns WR Greg Little signed

The Oakland Raiders have signed former Clevland Browns WR Greg Little, a move that I have thus far somewhat unfairly heard written off.

Greg Little is a 6’2″, 230 lb, 4.45 second 40 timed, former second round draft pick, who has excellent ability after-the-catch (hence his use as a kick returner, and previous incarnation as a RB). Yes he has suffered from the drops, hence his release from the Cleveland Browns roster, but I don’t think this is because he is a poor player. Rather I think the pressure of being a second round draft pick and being played out of position, as a deep-threat burner, got to his confidence. As one of our talented young WR-core, he can get back to doing what he is best at, making tough catches in traffic and breaking away for big gains. Two years down the line, when Shaub hands the keys of the francise over to Carr, Little’s confidence will be ready for deep balls.

Little pulled in over 60 catches as a rookie, in 2011, and possess rare physical tools for a receiver – he’d make an ideal WR/TE hybrid, something that would ideally suit Matt Schaub’s love of a TE. http://draftbreakdown.com/scouting-report-greg-little/ described him as having the “ability to develop into an upper-echelon receiver in the NFL” ….. lets hope this kid can turn it around and re-direct his talents under better tutelidge.

To seal the deal, recently signed UDFA DJ Coles was released.
