The Cleveland Browns signed tight end Gerell Robinson to its active roster off the Denver Broncos' practice squad Tuesday, putting a seeming end to a three-year relationship Robinson and the Broncos have enjoyed. Robinson, a 2012 undrafted free agent who spent three straight training camps with the Broncos, had some nice words for the Broncos and the city of Denver.

Robinson also spoke with The Denver Post, taking time to thank several of his teammates individually and speaking with excitement about his new opportunity.
"I'm excited for a new beginning. I've been waiting for this opportunity (to make a 53-man roster) for a long time," he said. "It's bittersweet because I spent a lot of time with those guys in the (Broncos') locker room. They're a great group of guys and it's a top-notch organization. So hopefully everything works out for them. I'm looking forward to a new chapter in my life."
This is the NFL dream for thousands of bubble players like Robinson- making a 53-man roster. We hope it lasts for him and wish him well.
