WR Darius Jennings - Tennessee Titans
|5-10, 169||Born: 6-18-1992||College: Virginia||Drafted: ---|
2015 Week 13 vs CIN (7 / 5 / 35 / 0 rec)
Jennings, recently promoted from the practice squad, made his first appearance for the Browns this weekend and was almost immediately pressed into extended action. Jennings made mostly short catches for the Browns, as he was thrust into playing time after the team lost both Travis Benjamin and Marlon Moore to injuries. He had what would have been a seven-yard reception wiped off the books at the end of the first quarter on an offensive pass interference call on Gary Barnidge. He made an excellent catch in the third quarter where he leapt into the air to secure a catch that went for a first down. He may be called upon to start next week if Cleveland's injured receivers are unable to suit up in Week 14.
2015 Week 17 vs PIT (10 / 6 / 45 / 0 rec)
Jennings did not have a great game, dropping several passes and fumbling while fighting for extra yardage. One of his drops would have been a touchdown. His first catch came on a short swing pass. He made a big catch for a first down toward the end of the half as he dove toward the marker. He should have caught a touchdown at the end of the first half, but he allowed a catchable pass to go right through his hands in the end zone. His fumble came in the second half after making a catch, but the Browns were able to recover the ball. The rookie was productive based solely on volume in this game.
