Browns Release Eight Players

Cornerback Jason McCourty and wide receiver Sammie Coates aren’t the only players on their way out of Cleveland. The Browns have also cut cornerback B.W. Webb, defensive lineman Ricky Ali’ifua, offensive lineman Zach Banner, defensive lineman Collin Bevins, linebacker Jeremy Cash, offensive lineman Joseph Cheek, defensive back Trevon Hartfield, and running back Josh Rounds.

Banner figures to draw interest from teams given the lack of quality tackles available. A USC product, Banner was selected by the Colts in the fourth round of last year’s draft. When he missed Indianapolis’ final cut, the Giants tried to claim him off waivers before the Browns scooped him up. He saw time in eight games for the Browns last season.

Rounds, 25 in October, re-upped with the Browns on a futures deal in January. Same goes for Hartfield and Webb, but they’re now in search of new teams.

    Dorsey wasn’t a good hire to change the long term direction of this franchise, he was a GREAT hire.

      I’m thinking you’re right. He sure is moving in the right direction. Can’t say the Browns aren’t better than they were 2 weeks ago…..

    They could release the whole team, forfeit next season’s game and go for the number one pick in 2019 too, I suppose.

    Give me a huge sum of money and a surplus of draft picks thanks to the last regime and I’ll look like a great hire too. Let’s wait till it comes time for him to make real cap decisions which is ultimately what cost him his job in KC

    Such a sad franchise. Could’ve had wentz D. Watson. Wouldn’t be surprised if they draft mayfield 1st.

    You don’t build a winning team through FA; the Browns still have time to screw up the draft.
