WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Jaelen Strong | Free Agent WR

The Browns waived Jaelen Strong.

Strong got some run with the first-team offense during the preseason, but the Browns are going in another direction at receiver. The 2015 third-round pick of the Texans was signed by Cleveland in February.

The Browns have signed wide receiver Jaelen Strong.

Strong suffered a torn ACL in December 2017 and did not play in 2018, but he's back in the game getting an opportunity with Cleveland. The 2015 third-round pick of the Texans has a size/speed combination at six-foot-two with 4.44 speed and a 42-inch vertical, and he's still just 25 years old. Strong will look to carve out a role as as potential starter or reserve receiver for the Browns in 2019.

Jaelen Strong has a torn ACL.

Strong made the announcement on Instagram that he suffered it during yesterday's game and walked off the field under his own power as an example to the youth. His season is now over, and he'll unfortunately have to go through a long recovery process to get back on the field. Strong should get another opportunity when he gets back to 100%, but this is a road block to a career that hasn't started the way he would like.

Jaelen Strong scores in Jaguars' loss.

Strong was just called up from the practice squad, and the former third-round pick of the Texans played well, catching three passes for 38 yards and a touchdown against the 49ers. The score actually went off Leonard Fournette and deflected right to Strong in the end zone, so he was in the right place at the right time. Strong isn't a fantasy option, but maybe he can carve out a role moving forward with the Jags.

The Jaguars waived wide receiver Jaelen Strong.

With the team activating rookie receiver Dede Westbrook to the 53-man roster after he missed the first ten weeks of the season while on Injured Reserve, they have parted ways with Strong. The 2015  third-round pick of the Texans has talented and will get another opportunity at some point, but it might not happen this season.

Jaelen Strong (hamstring) is not traveling to London for Week 3.

The new Jaguars receiver previously could not find his passport, but he found it and won't be playing anyway. Strong will attempt to get healthy for Week 4 against the Jets.

Jaelen Strong was claimed on waivers by the Jaguars, according to Adam Schefter.

Strong was released yesterday by the Texans, and the division-rival Jags scooped him up today. The former third-round pick is still just 23-years-old with talent, but Houston released him after he couldn't put it together for them. Hopefully things change with Jacksonville, but it's unlikely to lead to any fantasy success in 2017. Strong might only have until Dede Westbrook (core) returns in a few weeks to make an impact behind Marqise Lee, Allen Hurns, and Keelan Cole.

The Texans cut receiver Jaelen Strong.

Strong was a third-round pick in 2015, but things never worked out in Houston for the talented receiver. At 6'2" with sub-4.5 speed and a 42" vertical, Strong will certainly get picked up by someone at some point. The former two-time 1,100-yard receiver at Arizona State will likely have multiple teams interested in him.

Jaelen Strong was not targeted in Week 2.

It was strong's first game back from his one-game suspension, but he didn't play much in the game. The only play Strong was really noticeable was on Deshaun Watson's 49-yard touchdown run, but Strong deserves a lot of credit for holding his block toward the end of the run to help spring Watson to the end zone. Running back Tyler Ervin appeared to be running ahead of Strong at receiver, which isn't a great sign for him. Despite his upside as a big receiver, he should be left on the waiver wire.

Jaelen Strong is appealing his one-game suspension for marijuana.

There has not been much talk at all about this, probably because it happened in February 2016. Per NFL rules, the one-game suspension is mandated for the marijuana suspension. Strong is probably going to have trouble winning this appeal, and the Texans are likely to be with a thin receiving corps for Week 1.

Jaelen Strong scores TD with starters in Week 2 of the preseason.

Strong caught two passes for 11 yards, including a nine-yard touchdown where he ran a nice route in the end zone to get separation from Patriots star corner Malcolm Butler. With Will Fuller (collarbone) out for a couple months, Strong might be the starter alongside DeAndre Hopkins and Braxton Miller to open the year.

Jaelen Strong catches one pass in preseason opener.

The third-year receiver had a nice 18-yard reception. It appears he is currently the third receiver behind DeAndre Hopkins and Braxton Miller, with Will Fuller out for 2-3 months with a broken collarbone.
