Former Green Bay Packers defensive end Carlos Gray was shot to death in his home in Pinson, Ala. Monday night, according to Carol Robinson of AL.com.
In last season’s finale, he suffered a fractured fibula that kept him from participating in the NFL Combine. He did later get workouts with several NFL teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions.
It’s a little detour route, said Roback, who has good size for a pro quarterback — at 6-foot-3 and 206 pounds — as well as excellent arm strength and above-average mobility.
Obviously, things didn’t go the way I anticipated, but that’s kind of how my story’s been.
I’m more than grateful for the Browns organization for taking this risk.
The team announced on Monday that they have waived six players, including running back Matt Jones. Jones was claimed off of waivers last September and ran the ball five times for 14 yards in five regular season appearances. He ran 243 times for 950 yards and six touchdowns for Washington in 2015 and 2016, but was benched halfway through the latter season.
Linebacker Jermaine Grace, nose tackle Joey Mbu and linebacker Darnell Sankey were also waived after seeing time for the Colts last season. Wide receiver Justice Liggins and defensive end Arthur Miley have not seen any regular season action and will be looking for it somewhere other than Indianapolis.
The final move was to waive defensive tackle Jonathan Calvin with an injury designation. He was on the Colts practice squad last year and will revert to injured reserve if he goes unclaimed.
He reports to the Browns on Sunday, and will take his physical Monday.
I’m going to do everything I can to make sure they made the right decision, Roback said.
