We here at NFL.com and NFL Network are ready for a monstrous day of cuts. Thirty-two teams cutting 22 players each — that’s essentially teams telling 704 players, “You’re fired!” There will be some high-profile names, some no-profile names, but lots of names, that’s for sure. And it already has started, though hardly with a bang.
Moments ago, the Browns’ list of cuts was released. There was more fizzle than sizzle. But here it is:
Reserve-Injured: OL Lennie Friedman
Additionally, the Browns placed LB Shantee Orr on the terminated-vested veteran list and four more on the waived-injured list: OLs Derrick Morse and Marvin Philip, DL Chase Pittman and RB Travis Thomas.
Waived: TEs Brad Cieslak and Kolomona Kapanui, DBs A.J. Davis, Travis Key, Brandon Mitchell and Jereme Perry, WRs Efrem Hill, Lance Leggett, Steve Sanders and Travis Wilson, LBs David McMillan and Chase Ortiz, DL Melila Purcell, OLs James Lee and Jonathan Palmer, and K Jason Reda.
