These three players have shown enough and it’s time for the Cleveland Browns to move on and allow someone else to take their spot on the roster
Oftentimes, players need time in the NFL to develop. That’s especially true of those who are drafted in the mid-to-late rounds. The Cleveland Browns have added some interesting names as of late in those rounds and while some have worked out, there are still more trying to turn the corner.
Entering 2023, there are a few such prospects that should be out of time. At this point, they’re basically progress stoppers for someone else and don’t need to be in the plans.
3 Cleveland Browns players who don’t deserve another season in 2023
3. Tommy Togiai, Defensive Tackle
When Tommy Togiai was selected at No. 132 overall, there was a lot of excitement among the fan base. This was mainly due to Togiai being a product of Ohio State, but there was still plenty to like about him coming into the NFL.
Unfortunately, his skillset hasn’t really translated to the NFL. As a rookie, he managed to play in just six games and while he had 16 tackles, he didn’t make too many impact plays. In 2022, he was on the field much more, playing in 12 games.
However, he had even fewer tackles with just 13 on the year. He was a major issue in run defense and his PFF grade went from 39.8 as a rookie to just 37.3.
Cleveland needs to re-tool the entire defensive tackle position and Togiai is one that should be replaced.
