The Cleveland Browns will have difficult decisions to get their roster to 53. These are the four most talented players who won’t make it.
As a Cleveland Browns fan, the most exciting time of the year is right now. Practices have begun, two preseason games under their belt, and the regular season just around the corner. After a stellar 2020 season, the anticipation for the regular season has never been higher in Cleveland.
As the Cleveland Browns head coach and general manager, this is one of the most difficult times of the year. The Browns have 80 extremely talented guys on their roster, and that must come down to 53 in just a few short weeks.
In the past, it felt like preseason cuts were never that difficult for the Browns. The team never had that much talent, so it never felt like you were letting anyone with a ton of potential go. Things have certainly changed over the last few seasons, and now the Browns will be releasing guys that find a home on another roster.
The team currently has a few small holes but is in a great situation where they are just worrying about depth currently. There are a few position battles, but don’t expect any shocking depth chart changes in the next few weeks.
The one shocking thing could be some of the talents that don’t make the final roster.
Unfortunately, you just can’t keep everyone, and a lot of good guys will slip through the crack. Below are the four most talented guys who won’t make the roster.
No. 4 – Johnny Stanton, Fullback
One of the stars this offseason has been backup fullback, Johnny Stanton. The former college quarterback is a freak athlete for the position and gives a different dynamic than your typical fullback.
Unfortunately, Stanton won’t beat out Andy Janovich, and he doesn’t quite have the talent to transition to tight end. Stanton has become a fan favorite and is well-liked by Kevin Stefanski but will likely be looking for a new team.
I would be shocked if Stanton didn’t find a roster spot with another team.
