Miles is a very solid WR but his hamstrings are more fragile than your grandmothers fine china. He'll be injured before week 6 and you'll be lucky to have him get 400yds and a couple TDs.


Week 6? Perfect that's about how long we expect Josh to be out


You realize that Miles is not a replacement for Josh, right? He's a slot guy with no speed and very limited burst who will work underneath and get your some catches via route running


Ill take that

I'd just keep Austin in a bubble with some film to watch and the playbook, then let him out on gamedays. Might get a few games out of him that way.

Good signings for them.

Not world beaters, but better than what they had until Hash Gordon comes back.

What's wrong with him ? Besides from injury.


Hamstring injuries every season.


Surprised TT didn't sign him to a 10 year fully guaranteed contract

Miles Austin is a good teammate, good person, and a great story.

He is also the single most fragile person I have ever seen. His Hammys usually start bothering him about week 2 of training camp and they last until he goes on IR or sits about 9 games.

**IF** he could ever get fully healthy, he is a solid #1 WR. But he hasn't been healthy in like 4 years.

Thought I'd fix that "if" for you.

I hate those threads. I swear all of them end up in spamming from bitter fans from the former team.


Nice signing for the Browns as long as it's not too much money of course.

I actually applaud these signings. Neither one of them are super stars, but they can be reliable. The #1 thing they've got to do is make sure Austin is healthy. Miles Austin is a good locker room guy (from what I understand) and a good person as Matts suggested. He's just so injury prone it's ridiculous. If he can stay on the field, Miles Austin is a really smart signing for them. Earl Bennett will give them formiddable depth, nothing to hoot about but a bit of reliability imo.

The training staff just has to get with Austin and make sure he does everything he can to be in the right condition for the season. As a Steeler fan, if he's healthy, I hate this signing, because he's a legit receiver when he's healthy. But like so many have said, he rarely is. I highly doubt there's much risk in the contract though.

Exactly my thoughts. It's cheap, low risk, and could possibly provide some sort of production. Maybe, possibly, one of these vets could teach Greg Little how to be and act like a professional football player, although I seriously doubt it.

Looks like Little won't be around to be taught anything..
