Sunday should be special for Cleveland native Steve Sanders, an East High School product who dreams of becoming his city's major one day. On Saturday, the receiver was promoted from the practice squad to the avtive roster and rookie receiver Paul Hubbard was waived.
If Hubbard clears waivers, the sixth-round draft choice from Wisconsin could be added to the practice squad. A track star in college, Hubbard walked on the Badgers' football team in 2003 and was red-shirted. While he showed his speed in Cleveland's winless preseason, he lacked consistency catching the football, dropping a touchdown in the finale against Chicago.
Sanders, 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, an undrafted free agent from Bowling Green, came to training camp with the Browns in 2006, but was waived on July 29. He was signed to the practice squad on Dec. 27 and spent all last season there.
