Hey, Browns fans. As a Jets fan, I checked in to see what you guys think of the deal--opinions seem to be mixed--and to let you know what you've got in Stuckey and Trusnik, having watched them play a little more than you probably have.
Stuckey was a solid WR in college, but suffered injuries his senior season and fell to the 7th round. In the 2007 preseason, he looked like he was going to step in as our #3 wideout, and put up great numbers, but suffered a season ending injury in the 4th preseason game...I believe it was a broken foot. Then last year, he claimed that #3 wideout position, and was Brett Favre's favorite target until the middle of the year. He runs really good routes and has great hands. He's a little on the small side, and doesn't have elite speed, so he's really your prototypical slot receiver. He's not much of a playmaker or deep threat, but he was a solid #2 for us early in the season, and a lot of Jets fans are sad to seem him go. You'll grow to like him, he's a great 3rd down receiver.
As for Trusnik, he's been one of our special teams aces, though it seems we have a few more on tap with Larry Izzo and others on the roster. He hasn't played much at linebacker, but has done a good job in kick coverage. 2 weeks ago, against Tennessee, he made a great play to drop Ryan Mouton and strip the ball, setting up a Jets touchdown. Nothing special, but he was a Mangini guy, so maybe he'll see some time at LB.
There you go, if there's anything else you want to know about those guys, just ask.
