Bobby Rainey Claimed by Cleveland Browns

It seems as though a reunion between the Ravens and Bobby Rainey will not happen. Many believed that if Rainey cleared waivers, he would be signed to the practice squad, but the Cleveland Browns have different plans.

The Browns lack running back depth behind former third overall pick Trent Richardson, meaning Rainey could see some serious playing time this year.

Rainey, and second year undrafted free agent out of Western Kentucky, has become a bit of a fan favorite in Baltimore with his electrifying dual-threat playing style that reminds many of Ray Rice. The Ravens' backfield is crowded with Rice, Bernard Pierce, Kyle Juszczyk, and Vonta Leach all set for playing time.

Rainey also has return ability, but the Ravens are set at both kick and punt returner with Jacoby Jones, who earned a spot at the Pro Bowl last year for his special teams ability.

Listed at 5'7" and 207 lbs, his quickness and receiving ability should make him the perfect complement to Trent Richardson's rough and physical style of play. As members of the AFC North, the Ravens and Browns are set to face each other twice a season, meaning the Ravens should still see plenty of Bobby Rainey.
