Browns claimed RB George Atkinson III, DB Briean Boddy-Calhoun, DB Marcus Burley, DE Tyrone Holmes and LB Corey Lemonier off waivers.

The rebuilding Browns were the league's most aggressive team on waivers. Atkinson rushed 19 times for an eye-popping 191 yards this preseason. His addition likely means sayonara for Terrell Watson.

Raiders waived RB George Atkinson III, OG Mitch Bell, WR K.J. Brent, CB Kenneth Durden, WR Marvin Hall, DL Drew Iddings, DL Branden Jackson, OG Denver Kirkland, DT Derrick Lott, LB John Lotulelei, TE Jake McGee, WR Jaydon Mickens, TE Ryan O'Malley, OG Oni Omoile, LB Korey Toomer, DL Greg Townsend Jr. and LB Kyrie Wilson.

The Raiders were supposedly deep heading into training camp but have cut a wave of undrafted free agents. There won't be a waiver-wire bonanza on their departing players.

Raiders signed Notre Dame RB George Atkinson III.

Atkinson (6-foot-1, 218) is a tight-hipped speedster who clocked 4.48 at the Combine after rushing 93 times for 555 yards (5.97 YPC) as a junior. He surprisingly went pro a year early despite failing to ever earn Irish feature back duties. Atkinson had only 10 catches in his college career, and is so painfully straight-linish that we expect him to max out on special teams. He did score twice on kickoff returns as a freshman in 2011. Atkinson is a low-ceiling, one-dimensional talent.
