Cleveland Browns GM John Dorsey will soon have a decision to make about his final roster, and these 5 players may be on the bubble to make the final squad.
The Cleveland Browns are halfway through the preseason, with only two more exhibition contests to go before John Dorsey picks his first roster as general manager.
For anyone who’s been to training camp, there’s a lot of orange helmets running around Berea that won’t be here when the Browns kick off the season September 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In-between, there are players looking to knock off incumbents, while others may be the product of a new draft class who are trying to prove to the team that drafted them that they’re worthy of sticking around.
At this point of the season, Dorsey must be beginning to play the numbers game to get an idea of who will make his final roster.
The Browns are embarking on preseason Week 3, which is regarded as the dress rehearsal for the regular season.
Lots of things can change of course, as other teams will be cutting players, too. If this regime is like previous regimes of the past, Dorsey’s going to love tinkering with the bottom of the roster, which means his staff will establish residency on the waiver wire.
The Browns must trim their roster to 53 players on September 1 by 4 p.m., but as of right now, these five players are trying to keep their bubbles from being popped as they seek a spot on the team.
