Week 2 Depth Chart: Unofficial for Saints Game


The Cleveland Browns Week 2 Depth Chart is out. The Browns release a unofficial version to the media at the begining of the week. This one came out before the roster moves were made that we covered here (New Window).

Nothing shocking or surprising in the new Depth Chart seen here:

The roster moves today do lead to some question marks for the team. Ryan Seymour was released, yet he is the only tackle listed as a backup on the depth chart. The Browns either are comfortable with Paul McQuistan or Vinston Painter taking over at one of the tackle spots or would more likely move rookie Joel Bitonio outside and either one of them inside to his spot.

LaRon Byrd, a player that fans are excited for mostly because he is taller than six foot, is last on the receiver list and will likely be inactive barring any injuries or changes. Where Marlon Moore fits into the depth chart will also be interesting.

That Aaron Berry was released instead of K’Waun Williams raises a question as well. If Berry was ahead of Williams why was he cut and not Williams? Pierre Desir was inactive last week but hopefully he is healthy enough to play and can get on the field. With Justin Gilbert likely getting less snaps Desir could be in line to pick up some of them. Developing the 2 youngsters this year will be very important, especially with Buster Skrine set for free agency at the end of the season.

Desmond Bryant is the only one listed as injured even though a few players missed last weeks game with injury. A return to health of Bryant and John Hughes could create a dynamic depth on the defensive line and hopefully minimize fatigue. Drew Brees will likely try to use no huddle to try to keep the Browns from substituting.

Travis Benjamin didn’t have a great game returning but will likely remain in that spot for the time being. Moore could also play a role now that he has been reinstated.

Are there moves you think should be made?
