BEREA, Ohio -- Pat Shurmur sent a message loud and clear to receiver Greg Little Monday: catch the passes and drop the poses.
Shurmur warned Little that if he doesn't hang on, he'll be posing on the bench. "We can't play a guy that's going to drop footballs," said Shurmur.
Shurmur isn't amused by Little imitating Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt when he makes a first down -- one finger pointed to the sky, the other arm poised to shoot an arrow. He struck the pose with the Browns trailing the Bills, 17-7, in the third quarter and again in the fourth after a 17-yard catch that was wiped out by holding.
Little also "Bolted" in Cincinnati and shimmied in the end zone after his touchdown catch while the Browns were losing.
"I can't speak for everyone else, but I've had my conversations with him about that," said Shurmur. "Now whether people see me ranting and raving on the sideline at a player -- trust me, I have my conversations with him."
Little agreed to halt the pose on Monday, especially with fans hammering him on Twitter.
