Gary Baxter’s Injury-Filled Browns Career Finally Comes to an End

Filed under: Browns, AFC NorthI can’t envision how Gary Baxter’s career with the Cleveland Browns could’ve gone more horribly wrong. The former Ravens second-round pick was head coach Romeo Crennel’s first big free-agent acquisition after taking the job early in 2005.

In the three seasons since, Baxter played in eight games. Out of a possible 48. He torn the patellar tendons in both knees during Oct., 2006 and hasn’t seen the field since. And today, the Browns terminated his contract. “”Last year we were able to hold a roster spot open for Gary as he attempted to make a monumental comeback,” said Phil Savage, Cleveland Browns Senior Vice President and General Manager. in the club’s press release.

“After he underwent a knee scope last week, we are unfortunately not in a position to hold a roster spot this year. We are releasing Gary today in hopes he will be able to continue his rehab and get back into the NFL, either with another team, or possibly with the Browns. Gary has made tremendous strides thus far and we believe he can play professional football again in the future.”Savage is right in one sense: there will always be a need for cornerbacks in the NFL. Unfortunately, they have to be healthy. As for the Browns, they’re down another defensive back after sending Leigh Bodden to Detroit this offseason and losing Daven Holly during minicamp.

If the remaining members of the secondary can stay healthy, that would be splendid, but tackle football being what it is, that’s asking a lot. Which is why the offense will need to put up points like it’s 2007.
