Browns waive RB James Davis, claim RB Clayton from Pats

The Browns made an interesting roster move today, waiving RB James Davis. The team claimed RB Thomas Clayton off waivers from the Patriots.

Davis was a 6th round pick back in 2009, and this season in four games rushed four times for 9 yards. All four of the carries came in a week three loss in Baltimore.

Back when he was drafted back in 2009, many in the organization felt he had a chance to be a contributor to the club. Guess not.

At the time, GM George Kokinis said he liked Davis’ production in college, including that he is Clemson’s all-time leader with 47 rushing touchdowns – 21 in his last two seasons. He also liked his 4.60-second speed in the 40-yard dash.

“At that point in the draft you take a shot on someone that has that kind of speed,” Kokinis said. “He has a lot of upside.”

Now he’s like just another draft pick of the Browns looking for work.
