Why isn't Jordan Norwood getting more snaps?
Why hasn't Carlton Mitchell been featured prominently in the offense yet given his "potential?"
These two receives were elevated on the depth chart last week due to Mohamed Massaquoi being out (concussion) and Brian Robiskie on the verge of being cut. Both Norwood and Mitchell have had fans who have been vocal about their wishes to see each player be involved in the offense. The question is this: just how involved should they be in the offense, given the fact that three receivers are ahead of them on the depth chart? (Side note: Shurmur confirmed that Mitchell would be active again this week).
I think the person who is least likely to have reps taken away from him is Greg Little, given the team's investment in him and the fact that he has received the most reps at the position this season. Joshua Cribbs and Mohamed Massaquoi don't have a lot of catches, but each of them have made some clutch receptions late in games.
I know that really good teams like the Green Bay Packers would have no issues mixing in their fourth- and fifth-receivers, but given our ineptness offensively this season, it seems like it would be easier said than done for Pat Shurmur and the Browns.
This is an open-ended poll with two questions:
-Should Norwood and/or Mitchell be much more involved in the offense (more so than they were last week)?
-If so, who should see less reps at the receiver position between Little, Cribbs, and Massaquoi?
Feel free to share a rep ratio for the five wideouts.
