After watching the first pre-season game for the Browns in Jacksonville, the Cleveland Browns knew they had some tough decisions to make with their roster.
On Monday, the Browns made the following moves, cutting their roster down to 85:

The first preseason game was indeed a very pleasant game to watch. While there was obviously bad in the game, I think there were still overall more positives than negatives in the game. Rookie linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah stole the show for the Browns, making plays all over the field.
One of the most encouraging things when it comes to a collective unit for the Browns was how easily they were moving the ball of the first few drives of the game. While the Jaguars had their first-team defense in the game, the Browns had their second-team offense in, running very smoothly.
Second-year receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones was quick to back up his outstanding camp so far by making two nice catches early on in the game, one of them being a flashy one-handed grab towards the sideline.
When it comes to the Browns and just how good they currently are, I think we will see something happen that we really haven’t seen much of in recent years; guys will be cut from the Browns roster who are solid players that will be good enough to make 53-man rosters elsewhere around the league.
Trimming the roster to the final 53 will be very tough, as talent lies all across the board in Cleveland.
