The Cleveland Browns reportedly considered potential options for broad receivers before the trading deadline, and one of the potential options was Kenny Steels, who was abandoned by the Houston Texans.
Mutual agreement between the Texans and Stills, he certainly deserves a look at the browns, but the fact that he is the object of rejection makes them unlikely to get anywhere near him. Worse, one of the teams that stands out as a possible destination that has a higher claim to cancel than the Browns is the Baltimore Ravens.
Stills was acquired with Laremy Tunsill in a deal with the Miami Dolphins, as then-coach and general manager Bill O̵
Three months after the season, the Texas barely used Stills, favoring the other three receivers and a few tight ends, so they agreed to give it up.
Stills is a player with great speed and the ability to stretch the field, which can be valuable for a team like Browns. KhaDarel Hodge, who has six receptions, and Rashard Higgins are the biggest deep threats to the Browns right now.
The cost of success, the Browns are quite low on the priority of giving up and will require a significant number of teams to hand it over before they can get their chance. It is possible, but it seems unlikely.
If Stills had to get to the Browns in any way, he could help the recipient’s position and provide the type of deep threat that the Browns have had with players like Breschad Periman or Antonio Callaway over the past two seasons.
