CB Donovan Olumba
There may not have been a harder player to cut this weekend than cornerback Donovan Olumba, who put together an excellent summer but finds himself amidst an extremely deep and seasoned unit. With Denzel Ward, Greedy Williams, Kevin Johnson, and Terrance Mitchell all already on the roster, it left a limited number of spaces for young cornerbacks to make the roster.
In the end, the Browns opted for the defensive backs who had nickel versatility, such as waiver wire add M.J. Stewart (who was a second-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers), over Olumba who is a sizeable cornerback who can only hang outside the numbers.
However given that size, listed at 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, the Browns will hope he slides through the waiver wire process unclaimed so they can stash and develop him further on their practice squad this coming season.
After a strong camp, the second-year cornerback out of Portland State University could potentially have other suitors and be off to his third team in two seasons.
However, there is little doubt the Browns would love to have him back in case of continued injuries in their cornerback room, like we have already seen from Williams and Johnson.
