Browns Cut Rogers, Five More...

Heckert and Shurmur dump vets, prepare to rebuild defense...

Fox Sports Ohio's Zac Jackson reported earlier this evening that the Browns have cut six players, including NT Shaun Rogers. Lane Adkins has confirmed the Rogers news, and additional detail has been forthcoming from our old friend Adam Caplan.

Here is the story on Fox Sports Ohio. More detail coming later today on FSOhio and the OBR.

UPDATE: Adkins was told Wednesday evening that the Browns were ready to make those moves a week ago, but they were waiting for the completion of Super Bowl XLV.

Rogers (DL), Eric Barton (LB), David Bowens (LB), Kenyon Coleman (DL), Robert Royal (TE) and John St. Clair (OL) are not involved in the team's plans moving forward and the Browns decided to make those moves now.

Finally, Adkins was told there could be a few more cuts, "with potentially a surprise or two sprinkled in."
