Jeff Janis left the Green Bay Packers on Friday and signed with the Cleveland Browns. A lot of Packers fans were saddened. Others were angry. Some were happy that Janis will seemingly now get a chance to realize his potential as a receiver.
I have my doubts about that.
Although I have no love for Fat Mike and his ability to creatively utilize players like Janis or get the most out of them, we are talking about a guy who has 17 career receptions for 200 yards in a four-year career. If that were one season, I’d say maybe he has a chance to contribute on offense for the Browns. I’m all for the guy proving me wrong, but history suggests he won’t.
I’ve never quite understood the fascination with Janis. Has a special teams player ever had a bigger fan club? Anyway, I’m sure the legend will only grow in Cleveland.
Here’s what some of the boys had to say.

THANK YOU! 🙌🏼 so many great memories in Green Bay! From Lambeau leaps, to giant whitetails, to awesome fans, and starting a family. I am so thankful for the last 4 years! We have made so many great friends in WI and they will always be a part of our lives, and that’s what it’s all about!
Congrats bro! I will miss you man! @jrjanis
