Jordan Leslie

Browns Place WR Jordan Leslie On IR

The Browns waived wide receiver Jordan Leslie with an injury designation. As reported yesterday, the Browns have filled his spot by signing wide receiver Bryce Treggs off of the Eagles’ practice squad. Jordan Leslie (vertical)

Leslie went down with a hamstring injury in Sunday’s game against the Bengals. He was a preseason standout for Cleveland who missed the initial 53-man cut, but he was brought back into the fold weeks later. It’s not immediately clear whether Leslie might be able to return after eight weeks on the sidelines, as permitted by the league’s rules.

Leslie was a featured player at UTEP for three seasons before transferring to Brigham Young in 2014. As a senior there, he posted a career-high 55 catches to go with 779 yards and six touchdowns.

Treggs, a second-year pro out of Cal, first entered the league as a UDFA with the Niners in 2016. He later hooked on with the Eagles and had three catches for 80 yards in nine games.

Minor NFL Transactions: 9/22/17

Today’s minor moves:

  • The Patriots are promoting defensive end Geneo Grissom to the active roster, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The Pats have been paying Grisson handsomely by taxi squad standards – $36,716 per week – and they think rather highly of the former third-round pick. Given the way the Pats’ pass rush was depleted over the offseason, they could use his production. The 25-year-old has appeared in 26 games for the Patriots over the last two years but has yet to really make a mark.
  • The Browns have promoted practice squad wide receiver Jordan Leslie in advance of Sunday’s game (Twitter link via Ian Rapoport of NFL.com). Given Corey Coleman’s injury, Leslie should be in for some playing time. To make room, Cleveland waived wide receiver Reggie Davis.
  • The Bengals have waived wide receiver Jake Kumerow from injured reserve.

Workout Notes: 9/7/16

The latest workouts from around the NFL.

  • The Patriots tried out eight free agents today, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports. Quarterback Sean Renfree joined wide receivers Da’Ron Brown, Jordan Leslie, Max McCaffrey, Mekale McKay and DeAndrew White, along with linebacker Deon King and defensive lineman B.J. McBryde. Renfree may be the highest-profile player in this bunch to have auditioned. A former Falcons seventh-round pick in 2013, Renfree saw brief action last season but couldn’t make it out of training camp with Atlanta this season.
  • The Bengals worked out linebacker/defensive end Sadat Sulleyman today, as Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle tweets. The team also worked out cornerback Robertson Daniel, as Wilson tweets.
  • Former Texans running back Kenny Hilliard is drawing interest from multiple NFL teams, per Wilson (on Twitter) but is still weighing his options.
  • The Seahawks auditioned defensive end Dominique Davis, edge defender Jason Fanaika, defensive end Shelby Harris and offensive lineman Ian Silberman, Wilson tweets. The Raiders cut Harris this offseason after the former seventh-round pick played in eight games with the team in 2014-15.

Falcons Cut Ties With Renfree, Brown, Seven Others

The Falcons have trimmed their roster to 75 after having cut ties with nine players today (via ESPN.com’s Vaughn McClure on Twitter):

Sergio BrownRenfree may be one of the more notable moves, if only because the transaction provides some clarity on the team’s quarterback depth chart. With Matt Ryan and Matt Schaub having a solid hold on the starter and back-up gig, it looks like veteran Matt Simms will ultimately make the team as the Falcons’ number-three signal-caller.

Brown is another notable subtraction, as the safety has played in at least ten games in each of his six seasons. The 28-year-old actually had one of his best seasons in 2015 with the Jaguars, compiling 38 tackles and 1.5 sacks. The veteran’s tenure in Atlanta was short, as he was signed by the team last week.
