Cleveland Browns Cut 17 Players Saturday Morning, 10 More to Go


The Cleveland Browns cut 16 players while terminating the contract of one player on Saturday morning as they aim to establish the final 53-man roster by 6 p.m.

The list of players cut by the Browns includes:

  •  DB Coye Francies
  •  DB Ramzee Robinson
  •  DB DeAngelo Smith
  •  DL Travis Ivey
  •  OL Phil Trautwein
  •  OL Branndon Braxton
  •  DL Andre Carroll
  •  WR L.J. Castille
  •  OL Carlton Ford
  •  TE Evan Frosch
  •  DB Carl Gettis
  •  LB Eric Gordon
  •  WR Chris Matthews
  •  LB Steve Octavien
  •  DL Ko Quaye
  •  LB Sidney Tarver
  •  WR Demetrius Williams (contract terminated)

There aren’t many surprises on this list, though Francies is the most notable name on the list, as he went into training camp as a potential nickelback. This move might pave the way for undrafted rookie James Dockery to claim a spot on the final roster.

More moves will be coming today, at which time more notable names will find themselves cut.
