Former Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Lawrence Cager has signed with the Cleveland Browns’ practice squad.

Lawrence Cager was unable to make the Jets’ 53-man roster to start the season. Now, he’s found a new NFL home in Cleveland. The 24-year-old has impressive contested catch ability. Cager is a receiving target in the red zone due to his size. At 6-foot-5, 220-pounds, the former Georgia Bulldog can cause mismatches.

Cager appeared in two games with the New York Jets last season and caught two catches for 35 yards. He spent three seasons with the Miami Hurricanes before transferring to UGA for the 2019 season. Cager finished his 33 game college career with 14 touchdowns and 1,157 receiving yards.

Lawrence Cager signed with the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 4.
