The Cleveland Browns will be limited with cap space in the next few seasons, but they could consider releasing these three players to gain more cap room.
The Cleveland Browns are going to be entering a new era in a new decade when the 2020 season starts. After firing John Dorsey and Freddie Kitchens, the Browns will be with a new regime who will likely value the players on the roster differently.
During Dorsey's era as general manager, he was not afraid to make a big trade or make an aggressive signing in free agency. Some of those deals worked out or look like they will work out, while others fell flat on their face.
The Browns are in an interesting position because they still boast cap space, despite some bloated contracts on the books. However, that cap space will dwindle quickly as the Browns will have to sign several key players who will be coming off their rookie deals in the next couple of seasons.

Two of those players are Myles Garrett and Baker Mayfield, who will likely be looking for deals that are some of the biggest in the NFL at their positions. Once they sign those deals, the Browns will likely have limited cap space available if they do not make some moves on their roster.
There are several players the Browns can move on from during the offseason to create some cap space immediately and move on from bad contracts. Although it will carry some dead cap during the 2020 season, the organization getting themselves out from under bad contracts should be worth it.
Here are three players currently on the Cleveland Browns roster the organization should consider moving on from this offseason.
