The Cleveland Browns have a lot of wide receivers in camp including a few who have been with the team for quite some time. Derrick Willies played all of his career games in Cleveland and, seemingly has played his last.
Willies played five games for the Browns in 2018 and one last season. He had three career receptions for 61 yards, all in 2018. At 6’4″, Willies was a quality size, speed style receiver coming out of Texas Tech where he caught 36 passes for over 600 yards and five touchdowns in two years.
Based on his college production, Willies has done well to stick around the NFL for a few seasons but it seems that he has retired based on Cleveland’s move today:
The Browns now have a training camp roster spot to fill. It will be interesting if they add another receiver, given their depth, or fill the roster at another position.
Stay tuned for any further information, if it becomes available, on moving Willies to the reserve/retired list today.
