Engram looking to impact the Browns

Posted on: August 4, 2010 1:19 pm
 
Browns WR Bobby Engram, at 37 years old, is only two years younger than coach Eric Mangini. But to Cleveland president Mike Holmgren, Engram’s age doesn’t matter. All that matters is what he can bring to the team.

Which is what exactly? How much can a guy like Engram – who’s been a solid receiver for much of his career but who was cut by the disastrous Chiefs last year – really help a Browns unit in desperate need of some offense?

Which also leads to this question: how much can newly-signed QB Jake Delhomme help (but that’s an aside for another day)? For now, Holmgren seems confident in his newest WR.

"He's a special man,” Holmgren told the Cleveland Plain Dealer . “He's one of those rare guys that you want other players, particularly young players, to be around. He's played a long time but he kept in great shape. He's an amazing guy, physically, that way."

Holmgren should know. After all, they worked together in Seattle (it should be noted that Engram is only three seasons removed from a career-year of 94 catches, 1,147 yards and six touchdowns while playing for the Seahawks).

Engram, though, isn’t a lock to make the team. Josh Cribbs is the most-talented player on the team not named Joe Thomas, and Cleveland likes young receivers Chansi Stuckey, Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiskie. But all Engram wanted was a chance.

"I've got my work cut out for me," Engram told the paper. "They've got some talented young guys. I think the competition only makes you better. At end of the day, they will make the decision on what's best for the Browns."
