Browns To Release Greg Robinson

Projected to be the Browns’ Week 1 left tackle, Greg Robinson is now off Cleveland’s 53-man roster. The Browns are releasing the former No. 2 overall pick, Field Yates of tweets. However, this is not expected to be much more than a procedural move.

The Browns intend to re-sign Robinson, Tom Pelissero of adds (via Twitter). This move is almost certainly related to the vested-veteran loophole regarding guaranteed money. Robinson is still expected to be Cleveland’s left tackle starter, per Pelissero. This move will allow the Browns to reshuffle their roster without sending a non-vested veteran to the waiver wire.

Robinson re-signed with Cleveland for one year and $7MM earlier this year. He did not beat out rookie UDFA Desmond Harrison to be the team’s initial post-Joe Thomas left tackle starter but did take over that role midseason. Barring a trade, Robinson will be back with the Browns’ first-string line on Sunday.
