This is the 20th installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. There will be a new player released every day from now until the Browns preseason begins. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one. I try to keep these articles short and sweet.
#43- Trayone Gray– RB- Miami
I call this guy Trayone “50 Shades of” Gray because at 6’1, 233 lbs., he has no problem getting down and dirty. The big back enjoys getting physical with anyone who comes in contact with him. Also, I’m assuming chains excite him since he is always moving them. What else can I say, the guy is an absolute freak.
Gray only ran the ball 60 times in his collegiate career at Miami, but he did average 5 yards per carry. His most productive season was his sophomore year, right before he sat out an entire campaign with an ACL injury. His touches were limited in his junior and senior seasons.
If you go back a little further you will see that he was a quarterback in high school. Maybe if the Browns had him last year for the wishbone sets, we wouldn’t have had to watch Dontrell Hilliard’s lame duck pass on trick plays. (Sorry Dontrell, I still like you.) With Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry already on the roster, it appears the Browns are collecting the greatest group of passing skill position players known to man.
