Browns add Armanti Edwards

The Browns made a move at wide receiver Tuesday, but not the one some were expecting.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Browns are signing former Panthers wide receiver Armanti Edwards.

Dubbed the MVP of training camp by coach Ron Rivera this year, the 2010 third-round pick never made a regular season impact with the Panthers, and was released three weeks ago.

The former Appalachian State quarterback (who won two national titles and beat Michigan during his college days, so he’s already an Ohio favorite) gets a second chance with a guy who knows him. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski watched his progress the previous two years as the Panthers offensive coordinator, and must think he can get something out of him.

    Sweet,Panthers never truly utilized his skills.

    Well – they need a receiver to replace Travis Benjamin – so to think they were bringing him in – to be on the safe side in case they were trading Josh Gordon, was a stretch.

    So clearly he’s Benjamin’s replacement.

    The well-dressed Armanti Edwards.

    The bench is this way, Greg Little.

    Two words…PUNT RETURNER…so they don’t have to rely on Devone “Fumbles McGee” Bess.

    This is a good addition for the Browns. He’s an incredible athlete, just not given any chances behind Lafell & Smith.

  8. pilot2011 says: Oct 29, 2013 5:21 PM

    good for AE. He never really fit in Carolina for some reason.

    Browns fans, expect a punt returner and probably a #4 receiver threat, (I don’t know, who is the #3 receiver in Brownland anyway?)…

    Also would be interesting to see if Chud has some some quarterback trick or treats up his sleeve for Armanti.

    Let him return punts and play the slot. That way Bess can’t cost us anymore games

    I really hope this pans out.

    Great pick up. This guy has skills. Browns continue to make moves to improve.

    Right, and then the next regime will come in next season and remove him and build their own talent again. We’ve seen it. Josh Cribbs said he was tired of rebuilding every year.
    When will this team start winning??? I mean at least 8 eight games.

  13. thegodshonesttruth says: Oct 29, 2013 5:52 PM

    bengalskuta82 is another Troller Bungles fan waiting on a one and done. Your team will never achieve more than that so quit worrying about the Browns.

  14. jerze2387 says: Oct 29, 2013 6:00 PM

    …And he instantly becomes the best QB on the roster.

    But seriously, hes gotta be better than Weeden at least. Deactivate weeden every week, and have Edwards back up Campbell and get a few snaps at WR…versatility allows for an extra roster spot every week

    Downright pathetic

    Oh wow! You sound ticked off.
    I think my comment was fair but I guess when you experience a lot of losing seasons, you lose your cool easily.
    Thanks though for admitting that my team is headed for post-season. “One and done”?, hmmm, sounds like a playoff ticket to me. I’ll take it. Its better than a 4-12, or 5-11 season. OH and the word “bungle” is 10yrs old and is irrelevant today in the Jungle

  17. ballboy48 says: Oct 29, 2013 6:59 PM

    The Bengals will make the postseason. But, don’t worry there will be plenty of playoff tickets available, because for some reason, Bengals fans don’t go to the games. They are always threatening blackouts. Sounds like a loyal fan base.

  18. steelersaregodsteam says: Oct 29, 2013 7:05 PM

    As for the Bengals, they haven’t won a playoff game in over 20 years.

    That’s worth a big LOL!

  19. clevelandwhat says: Oct 29, 2013 8:02 PM

    Lol where were the bengals fans a couple years ago? They all of a sudden come out of the woodwork now. At least the browns games are never blacked out.

  20. mlblogsacubbieperspective says: Oct 29, 2013 8:07 PM

    Never heard anything that Armanti did out of line while with the Panthers. The trade to pick him too high wasn’t his fault. I hope it works out for him. Good luck Armanti.

    This bengalskuta82, is really a steelers fan, don’t let him trick you, I know him, we go to high school together. He comes into homeroom, and tells us about how he go so many thumbs downs from browns fans he got the night before. He got beat up by this girl in our photography club for taking pics of her booty. After 10 pm. you won’t her from him, because his mom makes him get off her laptop and go to bed, and he is a junior in high school , crazy.

    HUGE waste of breathable air and bench space

  26. pabrownsfan says: Oct 30, 2013 6:37 AM

    I can see Bengal fans doing a bit of trolling on here. They have a young team and should be good for a while. Steeler fans trolling? WOW. You are in dead last and don’t look like you are going anywhere soon.

  27. thegodshonesttruth says: Oct 30, 2013 6:39 AM

    wahoo80 I know he hasn’t been that productive for you all but hopefully our staff has a better role for him. Of course he may just end up being a turd ya never know. Just giving the guy another chance cant hurt.

  28. xinap says: Oct 30, 2013 2:08 PM

    To be honest, he was out of place year one. It didn’t help that he was not a choice of then coach John Fox, who went out of his way to not play him. This then went down the line to other coaches, and he was not used. He did manage a couple of passes, ran the wildcat and seemed to get in the groove of the return game towards the end of the season. Then we have a lockout, new coaching staff. Luckily for AE, he worked out with Muslin Muhammad in the off season. But a new playbook, new coach, and lockout just lead to a slight regression. He did manage to find his way on the field occasionally, but it was not until last season s 82 yard catch, that his value was realized.
    This season, AE was a casualty of needs and numbers in Carolina. He was great during the preseason, and was a set to be the panthers #3 received, then he experienced a hamstring injury and Ted Ginn moved up the depth chart. I think he will perform well, and is ready to go this weekend.
