CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have released safety Derrick Kindred and wide receiver Ricardo Louis, two more former draft picks who didn’t pan out.

On Monday, the first day of their offseason program, the club also signed free agent defensive back Juston Burris, defensive lineman Trevon Coley, wide receiver Rashard Higgins and defensive back Jermaine Whitehead.

Kindred and Louis were both selected in 2016 by Cleveland’s previous front office, which drafted 14 players that year. Only four remain and defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah could be traded.

General manager John Dorsey has spent the past year and more fixing a roster that produced just one win over two seasons.

A fourth-round pick, Kindred had been expected to start after the Browns traded Jabrill Peppers to the Giants as part of the deal for star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Now, the Browns are in the market for a safety.

Louis missed last season following neck surgery.
