Cleveland Browns Waive Eight Players to Trim Roster Down to 80


The Cleveland Browns waived eight players on Sunday in order to trim their roster down to 80, as the movement towards the final 53-man roster begins this coming weekend.

The eight players released by the Browns were quarterback Troy Weatherhead, wide receiver Johnathan Haggerty, defensive lineman Kyle Anderson, defensive lineman Jabari Fletcher, safety Brett Johnson, wide receiver Juan Nunez, kicker Jeff Wolfert, and cornerback Darian Hagan.

The most notable name in that list is Johnathan Haggerty, as he made a great impression early in training camp, leading some to believe that he could make the team. However, with the emergence of Jordan Norwood, it became evident that Haggerty was going to get squeezed out of a roster spot.

Teams have until Tuesday to trim their rosters down to 80 players.
