Wide receiver Miles Austin eager for fresh start with Browns

Not too long ago, Miles Austin was on his way to becoming one of the elite wide receivers in the NFL.

But he struggled with multiple injuries, including a nagging hamstring, and he missed extended time. And after a disappointing 2013 season, he was let go by the Dallas Cowboys.

The two-time Pro Bowler has a fresh start in Cleveland. And he's making the most of it through the first four days of camp.

And if he can stay healthy, Austin could be a major part of the Browns' offense, as the team awaits wide receiver Josh Gordon's potential suspension from the league.

In his breakout 2009 season, Austin caught 81 passes for 1,320 yards and 11 touchdowns. He followed that performance in 2010 with 69 catches for 1,041 yards and seven touchdowns while starting all 16 games.
