Browns release final 53-man roster after wave of cuts

The Browns have announced some big roster changes this weekend as the team made cuts to reduce the number of players to 53.

First but not foremost, Browns linebacker Mychael Kendricks was released from the team earlier this week after he was charged with insider trading by federal prosecutors. Kendricks later issued a statement where he claimed responsibility for actions he said he regretted.

Kendricks won't be the last name struck from the Browns roster this season, and the next player or players released by the team this weekend should fall under vastly different circumstances.

The current roster line up is as follows:

Offense (25)

Quarterbacks (3): Tyrod Taylor, Baker Mayfield, Drew Stanton; running backs (3): Carlos Hyde, Duke Johnson, Nick Chubb; wide receivers (6): Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway, Rashard Higgins, Damion Ratley, Derrick Willies, Josh Gordon; tight ends (4): David Njoku, Darren Fells, Orson Charles, Seth DeValve; offensive linemen (9): Joel Bitonio, Austin Corbett, JC Tretter, Kevin Zeitler, Chris Hubbard, Desmond Harrison, Earl Watford, Austin Reiter, Greg Robinson

Defense (25)

Defensive linemen (9): Myles Garrett, Emmanuel Ogbah, Chris Smith, Carl Nassib, Chad Thomas, Larry Ogunjobi, Jamie Meder, Trevon Coley, Devaroe Lawrence; linebackers (6): Christian Kirksey, Jamie Collins, Joe Schobert, Genard Avery, James Burgess, Jermaine Grace; defensive backs (10): Denzel Ward, Terrance Mitchell, T.J. Carrie, E.J. Gaines, Denzel Rice, Jeremiah McKinnon, Jabrill Peppers, Damarious Randall, Briean Boddy-Calhoun, Derrick Kindred

Specialists (3)

K Zane Gonzalez, P Britton Colquitt, LS Charley Hughlett

In addition, the team acquired DL Davaroe Lawrence from the Saints for a 2019 seventh-round pick.

On Saturday the Browns waived the following players: 

LB B.J. Bello, DL Caleb Brantley, TE Devon Cajuste, RB Matthew Dayes, OL Christian DiLauro, OL Spencer Drango, DL Daniel Ekuale, DL Zaycoven Henderson, RB Dontrell Hilliard, WR Blake Jackson, DB Mike Jordan, DB Montrel Meander, DL Nate Orchard, DB Tigie Sankoh, WR Da’Mari Scott, LB Brady Sheldon, DB Simeon Thomas, P Justin Vogel
