On Monday, the Cleveland Browns waived RB/FB Luke Lundy. Lundy wasn't a highly-scouted back coming out of college, so he took advantage of the alternate venue to the NFL Combine: the regional combines. After performing well enough at the Denver regional combine last February, Lundy was one of the players who moved on to the Super Regional Combine. The Browns then offered him a tryout and he stood out again, earning a contract with the club.
Lundy came into camp last year looking to compete for a backup running back or fullback spot. In my couple of days at training camp, he stood out because of the amount of effort he was giving on blocks in both individual and team drills. However, Lundy suffered a concussion pretty early on in camp and missed several weeks of action. The Browns were hit with a wrath of injuries at running back all at the same time -- there was a point when Duke Johnson, Terrance West, Malcolm Johnson, Glenn Winston, and Lundy were all sidelined at the same time.
Lundy was waived/injured at the end of camp. Since nobody claimed him, he landed on the team's injured reserve. Instead of reaching an injury settlement, he stayed there all of last year. Time might be out for the 27-year old back, though, who might have trouble finding a new team to break into the NFL on at his age.
