The Browns are unlikely to be suitors for former Vikings WR Randy Moss, Browns president Mike Holmgren indicated Tuesday, according to multiple media outlets.

According to the reports, Holmgren said the Browns want to develop the wide receivers currently on the roster.

Moss, who was officially waived on Tuesday, according to FoxSports.com, has caught 22 passes for 313 yards and five touchdowns in stints with New England and Minnesota this season.

Chansi Stuckey leads Browns wideouts with 21 catches and 213 yards.

The way we see it

The Browns didn't seek an expensive, big-name wide receiver in the offseason, and they didn't choose a wideout until Round Six in April's draft, when they selected Carlton Mitchell, so it would be a surprise if they would have interest in Moss. How Cleveland's young wideouts develop in the final nine games, especially second-year pros Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiskie, is a story line to watch. The Browns' passing game is improved from a season ago, but the club still ranks in the bottom half of the league in passing yards and average gain per pass play.
