Two weeks ago, Robert Turbin had appeared to be in line to take carries away from Isaiah Crowell. On Tuesday, the Cleveland Browns announce that they have waived the running back to make room for offensive lineman Darrian Miller.

Turbin appeared in just three games for the Browns despite being claimed off of waivers prior to the start of the season. He rushed for 60 yards on 18 carries and caught just two passes for eight yards. The Browns employed Trubin for what was six weeks of rehabilitation for just three weeks of actual production. Known mostly as the player whom the Browns added when they waived wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, Turbin is simply another name on the long list of failed additions at positions of skill in Berea.

Miller is a 6-foot-5-inch, 307-pound rookie out of Kentucky. He signed with the Browns as a practice squad player prior to the season and will now be elevated to the 53-man roster. As we know nothing about him, we turn to the team’s media guide where we find that Miller is quite the entrepreneur, starting his own lawn care business in the eighth grade. He enjoys reading (particularly short stories, because he’s a millennial), and still draws imaginary landscapes to this day. A renaissance man, Miller also likes to cook and experiment with special recipes that he calls his own.
