Browns shuffle running backs

While discussing his team on Wednesday, Browns coach Hue Jackson said they “have got to run the ball more” during the 2017 season.

On Thursday, the team made a pair of roster moves that change the options available to Jackson in the backfield. The Browns announced that they have signed Terrence Magee and waived/injured Darius Jackson.

Magee spent part of last season on the Browns’ practice squad between stints on the Seahawks’ active roster. He ran three times for 12 yards with Seattle and had two carries for four yards in four 2015 games with the Ravens.

Jackson joined the Browns as a waiver claim from the Cowboys in Week 15 last year, but did not see any action in the regular season.

Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson occupy the top two spots on the running back depth chart in Cleveland with seventh-round pick Matt Dayes also on hand.

  1. The Browns have almost zero running game. The guys they have are average to below average at best. That’s an area they need to upgrade (once they actually find a QB).

    Yep, having the second highest yards per carry average in the entire league, despite every team keying on their running game since they couldn’t pass. Crowell just short of 1000 on 4.8 average. Now, I have to be fair, Crowell was only ranked 9th in the entire NFL in yards per carry. So, tell me about zero running game again, lol.

  3. Crowell ran for almost 1000 yards (952) and averaged 4.8 yards per carry on limited carries, but yeah, he probably sucks. It’s going to be great to watch him run wild this year while the haters eat “Crow”
