Browns Get Former Jets WR Paul Raymond Off Waivers

The Browns today were awarded wide receiver Paul Raymond off waivers from the Jets, the club announced. In addition, the team waived linebacker Bo Ruud.

Originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Jets on May 2, 2008, Raymond spent parts of the 2008 season on the Jets’, Detroit Lions’ and New York Giants’ practice squads. He was signed by the Jets following the season.

A four-year letterman at Brown, Raymond finished his collegiate career sixth all-time in both receiving yards (1,800) and receptions (116). He recorded 978 receiving yards as a senior, and ranked second in the Ivy League and ninth in the nation with 97.8 receiving yards per game. Raymond was named to the All-Ivy League second team as a senior.

Born on May 5, 1986, the 5-10, 185-pound Raymond attended Miami Senior (Miami, FL) High School where he earned all-county team honors in football.

    As for Ruud, notwithstanding that his career at Nebraska proved he has talent both strong and weakside, I was a little skeptical when the Browns signed a guy that spent the entire season last year on injured reserve before being released by the Pats. In terms of Raymond, I am never enthralled with a WR who is that small unless he has truly exceptional skills.

    He was a practice squader for 3 different teams in the same year. What does that say about his talent? One was with the Jets, so this has to be Mangini’s choice.

    Isn’t there already enough competition at wide-out? Maybe this is a move to make sure certain guys don’t slack off, ever. Receivers on this team are replaceable, unless they carry eight or nine.

    Bottom line, neither guy is/was going to make the team by September 5 without starting special teams play.
