The Browns will have to cut some players eventually, these are five potential names.
The Browns are in a good position to be in. They have an overabundance of talent but a limitation of spots. Cleveland, like every other team in the NFL, will have to cut some players eventually. More so now after such a robust draft.
So who is on the chopping block? A lot of potential names exist but it ultimately boils down to the guys hanging on at the bottom of the depth chart at their respective positions. The same positions, mind you, the Browns just went out and upgraded. We’re talking corner, receiver, linebacker, and a few others.
The cuts probably won’t come until training camp, but these are now five of your likeliest candidates.
CB Brian Allen
As far as Browns players go, anyone like Brian Allen is a near-lock to be cut. A former member of three practice squad rosters in 2020 alone, as well as an additional two more teams, including the Browns, Brian Allen isn’t destined to be on this team much past training camp.
Allen was likely retained at the time due to the lack of depth at the position. Since the end of the season, the Browns let Kevin Johnson and Tavierrrer Thomas go, and replaced them with Troy Hill and Gary Newsome III. Those moves were a clear sign that Allen, and another corner on the bubble, Robert Jackson, may not be long for the team.
Granted, it’s possible, maybe more than anyone else on this list, that Jackson or Allen are retained due to depth reasons. The likely candidate would be whoever costs the team less, but even then, that may not save their career with the Cleveland Browns.
