The Browns need to drop to 80 players this week.
The Browns are rolling closer to the regular season, after defeating the Giants on Sunday. With just one preseason game left before the season starts, The Browns are now tasked with cutting five more people to get down to the league-mandated 80 man maximum for NFL rosters.
The good news about that, the Browns have an abundance of talent. Not everywhere, admittedly, the defensive tackles and linebackers are still very iffy in the eyes of many, but there’s enough young talent there to explore before people start freaking out and demanding trades be made.
So defensively, the team is shifting through some of its younger players, while the veterans and incumbents sit, biding their time. Decisions have to be made still, with positions still needing to be decided, especially after the Giants game.
While guys like Andy Janovich seem like a lock to make the team, Johnny Stanton is proving that he belongs on this football team in some capacity. We also know guys like D’Ernest Johnson and John Kelly are not going to make things easy for anyone when it comes to making decisions.
We know who the team should keep, but what about the players they shouldn’t keep? That’s going to be the topic of this article, the four players that have proven to be not worth a roster spot. They might not be cut on Monday, but they’re going to be cut eventually.
This list was going to be five players originally, but its possible the Browns are going to put someone else on the IR, namely either Ja’Marcus Bradley or Alexander Hollins.
