Gary Baxter Terminated

10170

[Gary Baxter's] improbable nearly two-year comeback from two severely damaged knees -- one of the most remarkable injury stories in the history of the Browns, if not the NFL overall -- has been brought to a halt.

"Last year we were able to hold a roster spot open for Gary as he attempted to make a monumental comeback," said Phil Savage, Cleveland Browns Senior Vice President and General Manager, in a statement released by the team on Saturday afternoon. "After he underwent a knee scope last week, we are unfortunately not in a position to hold a roster spot this year. We are releasing Gary today in hopes he will be able to continue his rehab and get back into the NFL, either with another team, or possibly with the Browns. Gary has made tremendous strides thus far and we believe he can play professional football again in the future."

I can understand why we terminated his contract completely and I agree with the move... We can't afford to waste roster spots especially if we need to carry 2 fullbacks and maybe 4 tight ends. We can't afford to keep extra players around just in case they make a comeback.

They did say they might bring him back if he gets healthy and if we do, fine, but if not I am not going to be upset by it. I hope he makes a comeback, and if he does, great. I just don't see him doing it as a Brown.
