A wide receiver who participated in Colin Kaepernick's NFL workout in Atlanta received a tryout of his own with the Cleveland Browns. Meanwhile, Kaepernick, 32, is still waiting for any team to call.

According to NFL reporter and talk show host Howard Balzer, wide receiver Jordan Veasy, got a private tryout with the Cleveland Browns.

Veasy, a former California Bear, caught passes from Kaepernick during his controversial workout at a high school in Atlanta earlier this month.

Kaepernick angered NFL execs when he switched the location of his workout at the last minute. His stunt "disappointed" Jay-Z who, along with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, arranged the workout for Kaepernick.

According to BET.com, "the Browns just signed J'Mon Moore to their practice squad, so it's unlikely they'll add Veasy as well."

The Browns are 5-6 on the year and could use help at the quarterback position. But Kaepernick's antics have shut the door on his chances to be a part of an NFL roster.

NFL spokesman Michael Signora tweeted the league's decision. Garrett is suspended indefinitely. Steelers center Pouncey has been suspended for three games for kicking Garrett, and Browns defensive tackle Ogunjobi has been suspended for one game for shoving Rudolph to the ground.

All three players are suspended without pay, Yahoo Sports reports. Each franchise has been fined $250,000.

ESPN's "First Take" host Stephen A. Smith agreed with the NFL's disciplinary action. "It's unfortunate, Myles Garrett has to be suspended for the rest of the season... as a Black man, we're going to be judged as a societal issue."

Garrett, a 23-year-old No. 1 overall NFL draft pick, tackled Rudolph, who no longer had the ball. Rudolph took exception to the late hit and began tussling with Garrett on the ground.

Garrett, not wanting to injure his fist on Rudulph's helmet, ripped the 10-pound helmet off Rudolph's head and beat him with it.

Sports analyst Adam Schefter did not mince words on ESPN's "Get Up", saying, "What we saw Thursday night was the closest thing to an on-field criminal act that there's ever been in NFL history."

Fans sitting at home were horrified to see a player rip a quarterback's helmet off and swing the helmet at his head. Such a criminal act was never seen before in the annals of NFL history.

One Twitter user wrote, "The disrespect of hitting a QB with his own helmet. I'm flabbergasted. I don't watch football like that, but that's crazy."

Another tweeted: "@PopeyesChicken, if you’re looking for a store manager, it looks like @MylesLGarrett will be free the rest of the year."

And a third user tweeted: "Bye Myles Garrett!! You don't deserve the privilege to play this game at any level. I'm disgusted!"

It's being reported that Rudolph's agents are considering taking legal action against Garrett.

Garrett, considered one of the NFL's premier defensive ends, tackled Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph, who no longer had the ball. Rudolph took exception to the late hit and gave Garrett the business.

Garrett, not wanting to injure his fist on Rudolph's helmet, ripped the 10-pound helmet off Rudolph's head and beat him with it.

Fans sitting at home were horrified to see a player rip a quarterback's helmet off and swing the helmet at his head. Such a criminal act was never seen before in the annals of NFL history.

Many fans tweeted calls for police to arrest Garrett after the 23-year-old was ejected from the game.

One Twitter user said a fine and a suspension weren't enough for Garrett's dangerous behavior. The fan said about 6 months' jail time was the appropriate punishment.

The Browns defeated the Steelers 21-7.

Question: did you watch the Cleveland vs Pittsburgh game last night? Does Garrett deserve jail time for assaulting another player with a deadly weapon?

Jermaine Whitehead was released by the Cleveland Browns hours after he went ballistic and issued death threats on Twitter.com following a team loss on Sunday.

The former Browns defensive back went on a profanity-laced Twitter rant that included racist language and death threats after the team lost to the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Whitehead targeted Browns TV and radio broadcaster Dustin Fox after Fox tweeted "Whitehead's effort tackling today is a joke."

Whitehead reacted by calling Fox a "cracker" and warned the reporter not to "get smoked", which is urban slang for getting shot.

Whitehead, 26, also issued death threats to Browns fans and offered one fan a place to meet him to fight.

According to Yahoo Sports, the Athletic's Zac Jackson reported that Whitehead was still wearing his Browns uniform when he lashed out on Twitter.com and that a team public-relations staffer separated him from media in the postgame locker room, where Whitehead did not speak with reporters.

Twitter suspended Whitehead's account and the team released a statement addressing Whitehead's tantrum.

"Jermaine Whitehead's social media posts following today's game were totally unacceptable and highly inappropriate," the statement reads. "We immediately spoke with Jermaine upon learning of these comments. The Browns in no way condone that type of language or behavior. This matter will be further addressed internally."

On Monday the Browns cut Whitehead from the team, according to the Associated Press.

Whitehead was in his second season with Cleveland. He was signed last year after the Green Bay Packers waived him two days after he threw a punch during a game. The Browns are 2-6 on the season.
