Ja'Marcus Bradley News

Signed by Cleveland

Bradley was signed to Cleveland's practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Bradley spent all of preseason with the Browns, so he's familiar with the system. The same goes for JoJo Natson, who also re-signed with the Browns for practice squad duty. That the Browns kept only five receivers suggests Odell Beckham (knee) will begin full practice in preparation for Week 1 in Kansas City. However, Bradley and Natson could be useful if either Rashard Higgins (leg) or Anthony Schwartz, who missed time during camp, is unable to go Week 1.

Sent packing by Browns

Cleveland waived Bradley on Tuesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Analysis: Bradley appeared in three games for Cleveland as a rookie last season, in which span he caught five of 11 targets for 60 yards. He could be a candidate to pop back up on the practice squad if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Practicing again

Bradley (neck) returned to practice Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Analysis: Bradley missed roughly one week of practice due to his neck injury, but he's now able to resume competing for a depth spot in Cleveland's wide receiver room. Sunday's preseason finale against the Falcons likely represents Bradley's best remaining chance to make an impression on the coaching staff.

Dealing with neck injury

Bradley did not practice Tuesday due to a neck injury, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegramreports.

Analysis: The wideout signed a reserve/future contract with the club back in January after spending the majority of last season on the team's practice squad. Look for more updates on his status to come as Sunday's preseason matchup with the Giants nears.

Inks future pact

Bradley signed a reserve/future contract with the Browns on Monday.

Analysis: After playing in three regular-season games with the team, Bradley will stay in Cleveland and aim to see more targets in the upcoming year. The 24-year-old showed his offensive talent during Week 16's game against the Jets, where the team was missing their top four receivers, but Bradley managed to log five receptions for 60 yards.

Status unknown entering offseason

Bradley remained on the practice squad for Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Bradley, who spent most of the season on the practice squad, was active for a few games toward the end of the season and had five catches, 11 targets and 60 yards -- all coming in one game against the Jets when Cleveland was missing its top four wideouts due to COVID-19 protocols. The Browns can ink him to a reserve/future contract. If not, Bradley becomes free to sign anywhere.

Shuffles to practice squad

Bradley reverted to the Browns' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Bradley didn't suit up in Sunday's wild-card win over the Steelers. The undrafted rookie out of Louisiana played just three regular-season games, receiving all 11 of his targets in a Week 16 loss to the Jets in which almost all of the Browns' wideouts were in COVID-19 protocol. The 24-year-old caught five passes for 60 yards in that game. He'll reside on the practice squad for now, but he could be called back up for the AFC divisional round with a daunting matchup against the Chiefs on tap.

Jan 11, 2021 3:21 PM EST

Good to go for Sunday

Bradley has been elevated from the practice squad on Saturday.

Analysis: Bradley now has the chance to line up at wide receiver for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Steelers. The 24-year-old played in three games throughout the regular season, catching five of his 11 targets for 60 yards.

Jan 9, 2021 9:20 AM EST

Could be active Sunday

Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski included Bradley as an option to serve as the third wideout for Sunday's playoff-opener against the Steelers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis: The Browns will be without KhaDarel Hodge (reserve/COVID-19), and Donovan Peoples-Jones (concussion) is questionable heading into Sunday night's game. Bradley and Marvin Hall, another name mentioned by Stefanski, played extensively in Week 16 when Cleveland's top four wide receivers were unavailable while on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The coach also talked about running back Kareem Hunt lining up at wide receiver and discussed Alexander Hollins, who was signed off the VIkings' practice squad Dec. 28.

Totals 60 yards as fill-in starter

Bradley caught five of 11 targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Bradley stepped in as Cleveland's top available wide receiver with the team's top four options on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He finished second to tight end Austin Hooper in both targets and receiving yards, but the Browns' passing game was held out of the end zone, as both of the team's touchdowns came on the ground. Bradley will be pushed back down the depth chart and may not dress at all against the Steelers in Week 17 if Cleveland gets some of its usual receiving options back.

Listed as starter against NYJ

Bradley will draw the start at wide receiver Sunday against the Jets.

Analysis: Bradley was just promoted from the practice squad Saturday, but with the top four wide receivers in Cleveland sidelined due to COVID-19 protocol, he's in line to see an immediate role in his third career NFL game. Bradley previously saw a combined 15 offensive snaps in Weeks 13 and 14, but wasn't targeted in the passing game. The undrafted free agent is now set to serve as the No. 2 wideout behind Marvin Hall, though look for tight ends Austin Hooper, Harrison Bryant and David Njoku to be active in the passing game, plus pass-catching running back Kareem Hunt should see a portion of the targets.

Elevates to active roster

The Browns elevated Bradley to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Khadarel Hodge and Donovan Peoples-Jones have all been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, leaving Marvin Hall as the Browns' only wide receiver on the active roster. Bradley and Derrick Willies were called up from the practice squad as a result. An undrafted rookie out of Louisiana, Bradley has played in two games this season without a catch. He posted a 60-906-10 line in his last season at college.

Dec 26, 2020 3:48 PM EST

Shifts back to practice squad

Bradley reverted to the Browns' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Bradley slotted into the lineup for a second straight game because Khadarel Hodge (hamstring) was inactive. Through those two outings, Bradley logged just 15 snaps on offense and didn't receive a target.

Dec 15, 2020 4:47 PM EST

Rises from practice squad

The Browns elevated Bradley to the active roster Monday.

Analysis: KhaDarel Hodge (hamstring) has been ruled out for a second straight game, opening the door for Bradley to suit up for the Browns once again. The undrafted rookie out of Louisiana played 11 snaps on offense last week against the Titans and didn't receive a target. He'll slot in as the No. 5 receiver.

Dec 14, 2020 11:22 AM EST

Shifts down to practice squad

Bradley reverted to the Browns' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Bradley was unable to produce any statistical output over 11 offensive snaps during Sunday's 41-35 triumph over the Titans. Absences from wideouts KhaDarel Hodge (hamstring) and Taywan Taylor (neck) helped push Bradley onto the active roster for Week 13, but it remains to be seen if he'll get another call this season.

Dec 7, 2020 6:03 PM EST

Signs with active roster

The Browns promoted Bradley to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: The Browns will be missing Khadarel Hodge (hamstring) and Taywan Taylor (neck) in Sunday's matchup against the Titans, so Bradley will add depth at wide receiver. An undrafted rookie out of Louisiana, Bradley will make his NFL debut Sunday if he's indeed active. He posted a 100-1,414-20 line over his final two collegiate seasons.
