It’s high noon...

Ashton Lampkin signs with Browns:

After being on the Browns practice squad for a year when he was released due to injury by the Chiefs, former Oklahoma State corner back Ashton Lampkin has signed a two-year deal with the Cleveland Browns.

After a good showing in camp, his 2017 rookie season ended abruptly with a torn ACL. The Chiefs then reached an injury settlement with Lampkin and let him walk in August of 2018. After a short stint with the Bills in 2018, Lampkin finished the 2018 season on the Browns practice squad. The 24-year-old is now coming into his third year in the NFL.

Ashton Lampkin signed a 2 year, $1,080,000 contract with the Cleveland Browns that has an average annual salary of $540,000. In 2019, Lampkin will earn a base salary of $495,000, while carrying a cap hit of $495,000. Although it is unlikely that he will be a starter for Cleveland he should provide depth and excellent special teams play in 2019. {NFL Blitz}

Some good insight into Chuba Hubbard:

Stadium’s Michael Felder did an in depth review of some of Chuba Hubbard’s tape and had some great things to say about the Cowboy running back.

“When you think about the Big 12,” Felder said. “You think about quarterbacks and wide receivers. You need to be thinking about the running back position because Chuba Hubbard is set up to become the next great Big 12 running back.”

Pro Football Focus names Tre Flowers as No. 2 redzone cornerback in 2018:

Pro Football Focus named the NFL’s top cornerbacks in the redzone last season. Coming in at No. 2 (No. 1 on the Seahawks) was former Cowboy Tre Flowers.

The Legion of Boom is no more, but Flowers certainly made his mark as the Seattle Seahawks’ top red-zone cornerback in 2018; his 86.6 red-zone grade was reminiscent of Richard Sherman’s 85.0-plus marks in 2012 and 2013. Overall, it wasn’t the best year in coverage for the rookie, who posted a 108.3 passer rating when targeted, but in the red zone, he seemed to find his footing. He allowed just 50% of his red-zone targets to be completed, and while it’s a small sample size with six red-zone targets, there are plenty of reasons for optimism after Flowers’ strong rookie campaign near the endzone.{PFF}

Sidenote...this was hilarious...

That’s all for today folks! Have a great day and a great Easter weekend. We’ll be back Monday with more highlights.
