Brant Boyer Among Cuts

The Browns released thirteen players on Sunday afternoon, including a number of veterans. Leading the list is the team's veteran defensive and special teams leader Brant Boyer, who was in his 12th NFL season. Here is the list...

The Browns released 13 players this afternoon, including one of the team's recent co-captains, linebacker Brant Boyer. The veteran linebacker was the biggest surprise among the releases, which also included veterans Sherrod Coates, Corey Jackson, Javier Collins and Patriots import Justin Kurpeikis.

The moves were made in advance of Tuesday's roster cutdown to 65 players. The team's roster currently includes 74 players, including nine who have NFL Europe roster exemptions. The roster must stand at 53 by next Saturday, September 3rd.

The Browns may also be active looking at players released by other squads, but the cutdown to 65 indicates that no roster spots are being "held open" for another player already identified by the club.

Here is the full list of players who were waived today:

Player Pos Exp College
Brant Boyer LB 12 Arizona
Lang Campbell QB R William and Mary
Sherrod Coates LB 4 Western Kentucky
Javiar Collins OT   Northwestern
Derrick Frost P 3 Northern Iowa
Kevin Harrison LB R Eastern Michigan

Tyler Jones PK R Boise State
James King DB R Central Michigan
