Browns release WR Dwayne Bowe

The Browns have released WR Dwayne Bowe.

CLEVELAND, OHIO-- The overhaul in Berea is officially under way. 

Cleveland has released veteran WR Dwayne Bowe on Wednesday, after releasing linebacker Karlos Dansby just minutes earlier. 

Bowe, 31, had an unproductive lone season in Cleveland, appearing in just seven games and catching just five passes for 53 yards.

For those numbers, however, the Browns paid Bowe around $9M. 

According to Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 The Fan, the Browns paid Bowe $1.2857M for each game in which he played, $1.8 per the five catches he made, $692,308 for the 13 targets he had and $169,811 for each receiving yard he compiled.

There was a good deal of controversy surrounding Bowe, as the veteran was inactive often for the Browns in 2015.

Reports swirled that the Browns coaches were unhappy with Bowe's condition and didn't want him to see the field, though the staff told the media each week that he was part of the plans.

Of course, that was not the case, as Bowe made a very minimal impact for the Browns in 2015.
