The Toronto Argonauts have released American WR Daniel Braverman.
Braverman was an opening day starter for Toronto last season while also serving as the team’s primary punt and kick returner. He suffered an injury in the third week of the season against Winnipeg, and had a difficult time getting back on the field after that, finishing up the year with 15 catches for 152 yards.
The fact that the team is releasing Braverman tells you have far they’ve come. He was an efficient starter and a primary special teams weapon, but the Argos clearly feel they’ve brought in enough talent to replace him. Brandon Banks and Markeith Ambles both have been highly effective playing that same inside slot position, and there appear to be a number of new options in the return game.
Braverman is a skilled veteran receiver with a knack for getting open underneath. If he wants to continue playing, there will certainly be options available to him.
