Browns waiving Scooby Wright

The Browns are waiving rookie linebacker Scooby Wright, PFT has learned.

The Browns will also be announcing another roster move later Tuesday as they need to create two roster spots, one for veteran quarterback Charlie Whitehurst and another for center Austin Reiter, who they’re signing off the practice squad of the Redskins.

Wright will be subject to the NFL’s waiver system, and the Browns will likely sign him back to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

The Browns selected Wright in the seventh round last April, making him the last of their 14 draft picks. Twelve of those 14 remain on the team’s active roster.

    Getting waived from the Browns can’t be a good sign for the rest of your football career!

    Oh man that sucks, but even if he doesn’t make Cleveland’s practice squad hopefully he gets signed somewhere. I give not one single crap about the Browns but Scooby Wright is a fellow University of Arizona Wildcat, so I’m cheering for him. I never got to meet him, but everyone I met who knew him said he was a very good guy. He was a great player in college, I hope he can be a good pro. Good luck to him!

    Another missed opportunity – Scooby snacks in the Dawg Pound would have been a windfall…

    I never realized Pouncey was THAT critical to the run game. The offense was bad except for a few scattered plays. It seems as if there is minimal effort from guys that are not directly involved. Tannehill looked for a specific receiver for many plays rather than surveying the field for the best option and too many plays had the WRs running patterns of the same depth. That allows the defense to be bunched around the area the throws need to go to. That said, when the defense absolutely needs a stop at the end of the game, they fail. That was a crippled Browns team that should have been shut down. It almost looks like they play backwards. They rush the QB but play off coverage allowing quick passes that avoid the rush or they play close with no rush allowung the receivers to separate while the QB has all day. The execution on both sides needs to get better quick. It seems every play has someone screwing up whether it be a missed block, poor pass, dropped ball, bad pursuit, poor tackling or guessing wrong and getting beat. There is a fair amount of individual talent but it rarely works together on any given play. The dolphins should be thankful to get the win but they should feel embarrassed by that performance. Much credit to the browns. They could have easily just laid down but they kept fighting and should have won that game
