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.
