Panthers waive running back Chris Ogbonnaya

The crowded backfield of the Carolina Panthers got thinned out a bit on Saturday when the team waived running back Chris Ogbonnaya. A decision to waive Ogbonnaya is not that much of a surprise given that the Panthers currently have DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart and Fozzy Whittaker on their roster. With Ogbonnaya’s departure from the roster the Panthers have promoted defensive...

Panthers sign former Browns running back Ogbonnaya

He was teflon in Berea for a long time, but the “Baby Backs” finally made him expendable. The Browns cut Chris Ogbonnaya loose ahead of the start of this year’s NFL season – along with Dion Lewis – as they counted on Ben Tate, Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell to carry the load. Well, it appears Chris Ogbonnaya has found another job, this time with the Panthers. The addition...

Panthers Signing RB Chris Ogbonnaya

Jason La Canfora reports that the Panthers are signing former Browns RB Chris Ogbonnaya to a contract. Ogbonnaya, 28, worked out for the Panthers last week, and given the amount of injuries they have sustained at the running back position, it’s not surprising to see them sign someone to a contract Monday. It’s worth mentioning that Carolina released RB Tauren Poole on Monday...

Full of it: With two fullbacks, Vikings still see value in position

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Jerome Felton heard the rumors and wondered about his place in the Minnesota Vikings offense under new coordinator Norv Turner. The Cleveland Browns fullback, when Turner was the offensive coordinator there last season, was the 225-pound Chris Ogbonnaya, not exactly the bruising thumper typically lead-blocking in the running game.

The Cleveland Browns roster is undeniably better in 2014

I hate trying to predict what the Browns will do in a given season. Long gone are the days where I go through the schedule and assign W’s and L’s to each week’s contest. It’s much simpler for me to look at the Browns in a couple of different ways. First, unless they are tearing the team down completely, my standards for an NFL team in a given NFL season is that they ought...

Like most opposing Running Backs I’ve been picking on the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears all season. This week, the matchups dictate doing the same. In the Cowboys game, decision making is easy: Eddie Lacy appears to be ready to big go after getting in a day of practice on Friday and his volume/talent combination makes him an ideal start this week in the Big D.
