The NFL will conduct its inaugural NFL Veteran Combine on March 22 at the Arizona Cardinals Practice Facility in Tempe, Arizona. Players will be tested and evaluated by experienced NFL scouting personnel. Measurements, combine results, and videos of the workouts will be compiled and shared electronically with all 32 NFL clubs.
Over 100 players will be in attendance, including several former members of the Cleveland Browns. Do any of these players ring a bell with you?
- WR Carlton Mitchell
- TE Emmanuel Ogbuehi
- TE Ifeanyi Momah
- OL Randall Harris
- CB Aaron Berry
- CB Julian Posey
- CB Kip Edwards
My favorite player on the list is Mitchell, a former sixth-round pick who was with the team from 2010-2011. He only has 3 catches for 31 yards in his career and was last in the NFL during training camp of the 2013 season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And yes, he still has a very active Twitter following.
Ogbuehi was a tight end in camp last year who caught the preseason Hail Mary touchdown from QB Connor Shaw. Momah was on Cleveland's practice squad for one week to emulate TE Jimmy Graham, but that obviously failed since we gave up two touchdowns to him. Harris was with the Browns during training camp this last season.
Berry signed with Cleveland last training camp and made the final 53-man roster, but was released a week after the opener. Posey was off-and-on the practice squad during the 2013 season. Lastly, Edwards was on the Browns' practice squad for two or three weeks during the 2013 season.
A couple of "bigger names" from the list included RB Michael Bush, RB Felix Jones, RB Mikel LeShoure, DE Adam Carriker, and DE Michael Sam.
