Who should the Cleveland Browns roll with heading into Week 1?
I am not giving you a prediction of which Cleveland Browns players will be cut. This team proved with Sheldon Day that they’re a bunch of wild people, and will cut anyone. No, what I’m doing is simply looking at who I would cut and who I would keep.
I feel this will give me more wiggle room on things. For full disclosure, I would absolutely cut Deshaun Watson if I had ubiquitous control of the team. I never would’ve traded for him in the first place. The reason I’m not cutting him is simply that he’s going to cost $40+ million whether he’s here or not, and if I am really playing GM mode, I’d rather find someone who will take on his contract, even if it means paying something.
I would, 100%, rock with Josh Rosen or Joshua Dobbs in the regular season for 2022. I have no problem admitting that. I’d rather have a losing season with guys who aren’t a clear and present danger to their communities, as opposed to winning with a guy who needs constant supervision and a persistent handler.
So some of these cuts are going to be controversial, but that’s fine, they’re not starters anyway so don’t get your underwear in a bunch. I would like to know who you would cut and keep in the comments below, as long as you do so respectively.
I’m curious to see who everyone else would like to keep or feels the need to get rid of.
