Raiders claimed WR Greg Little off waivers from the Browns.
The 2011 second-rounder didn't make it past many teams on waivers. It's not surprising considering his draft pedigree and affordable $753,750 salary, but Little won't be assured of a roster spot for a team with a crowded, if unsettled, receiver corps. Little has been a massive disappointment despite ideal measurables (6-foot-2, 220 pounds, 4.51 speed), catching just 155 passes in three years while struggling with drops and mental mistakes. Little remains off the fantasy radar. May 19 - 4:15 PM

The Charlotte Observer reports the Panthers have "discussed" free agent Greg Little but don't plan to put in a waiver claim on him.

Little was waived by the Browns on Friday and will very likely get claimed by someone before Monday at 4 PM ET. He has just one year left on his rookie deal at a meager $753,750. The Panthers seem content with Jerricho Cotchery, Kelvin Benjamin, and Jason Avant atop the depth chart. Little went to North Carolina.

Browns waived WR Greg Little.

Even with Josh Gordon staring down a potential yearlong suspension and Nate Burleson rehabbing a broken arm, the Browns still give up on Little. The former second-round pick out of North Carolina was slated to earn just $753,750 in base salary, so the new regime must have really not liked him. Little has battled drops and mental mistakes during his short career but has the size (6-foot-2, 220) and speed (4.51 forty) teams covet. He has a good chance of being claimed on waivers. Little was part of the Browns' "haul" in the Julio Jones trade.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer expects Greg Little to "be fighting for a roster spot" in 2014.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported in February that Little was "almost certainly" going to be released had Cleveland's old front office hung around. The Browns have three draft picks in the top 35, and we fully expect one to be devoted to a wide receiver. Cleveland has Josh Gordon locked in at X receiver and Andrew Hawkins in the slot, but no Z receiver (Little's old position).
May 4 - 3:40 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Greg Little was "almost certainly going to be cut" by the old Browns regime.

Rapoport now reports Little "maybe" has a chance to play out the final year of his rookie contract. That's a couple of "almosts" and "maybes," so we truly have no idea what's in the cards for Little. All we know is that Little has been a colossal bust since being the 59th pick in 2011 and seems to be regressing. Little has already previously admitted he doesn't know what his future holds.

Greg Little caught one pass for nine yards in Cleveland's Week 17 loss to the Steelers.

Little was out-targeted by Josh Cooper and Fozzy Whittaker as he closed the book on his worst season yet. Living up to his reputation as a drop machine, Little finishes 2013 with 41 catches for 465 yards and two touchdowns. An underachiever as a rookie in 2011, Little has regressed sharply in both seasons since. He's signed for just $753,750 in 2014, but even Little has admitted he might not be back.

Greg Little isn't sure if the Browns will want him back for the final year of his rookie contract.

It's not often that a former second-round pick's future is in doubt when he's scheduled to make just $753,750. But Little has been that bad throughout his time in Cleveland. Things appeared to reach a tipping point on Sunday as he dropped a pass in the end zone and was benched in favor of Brian Tyms.

Greg Little caught one pass for four yards in Week 16 versus the Jets.

Little was targeted four times, with two of them coming in the end zone. He flat-out dropped an eight-yard touchdown that hit him right in the hands in the back of the end zone in the first quarter and was benched in favor of Brian Tyms. Little continues to be a massive disappointment for the Browns.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 06:04:00 PM

Greg Little caught four passes for 68 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Bears.

Little's big play came early as he took a one-step hitch for 44 yards. After that, he just dinked and dunked with Jason Campbell and somehow ended up leading the Brown in receiving yards. Little, who hadn't topped two catches in any of his previous four games, won't be a fantasy option in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 05:54:00 PM

Greg Little caught two passes for 14 yards in Week 14 against New England.

Little was targeted four times on the afternoon. He hauled in a deep ball down the right sideline but couldn't get both feet in bounds on the play. Little hasn't topped 17 yards receiving in a game in over a month.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 08:43:00 PM

Greg Little caught two passes for nine yards and one touchdown in Week 13 versus Cleveland.

Little was targeted four times. He's caught just five passes since his big Week 9. The touchdown was his second of the season. Little is on pace for just 44 catches for 493 yards and two touchdowns. He's off the re-draft map.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 06:24:00 PM

Greg Little had two catches for 17 yards in Week 12 against the Steelers.

Little played behind Davone Bess this week and finished with just seven targets. He continues to be used as an outside receiver in all three-wide sets, but is not higher than the No. 4 option in the passing game. Little has just 31 catches for 366 yards and one touchdown through 11 games and remains off the fantasy radar.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 06:30:00 PM

Greg Little had one catch for nine yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

Little predictably came back down to earth after going off for seven catches and 122 yards in Week 9 against the Ravens. He started over Davone Bess, but was only targeted six times in the passing game despite Jason Campbell's 56 passing attempts. Little has just 29 catches for 349 yards and one touchdown through 10 games and remains off the fantasy radar.

Greg Little (shoulder) is practicing Tuesday.

Little suffered a minor shoulder sprain in Sunday's win. With the Browns on a bye, he should be able to get fully healthy for a Week 11 matchup against the Bengals.
Tue, Nov 5, 2013 11:22:00 AM

The shoulder sprain Greg Little sustained in Sunday's win over the Ravens is not severe.

Little might even practice on Tuesday even though the Browns have a bye in Week 10. It confirms he'll be fine for a Week 11 matchup against the Bengals. Still, owners shouldn't be chasing Sunday's career-best seven catches and 122 yards. In the first eight games of the season, he averaged 2.6 catches for 31.1 yards with one touchdown.
