First Report: Browns Roster Cuts

The Cleveland Browns have made a thorough, and surprising set of roster moves this afternoon to get their roster down to 53 players. Players cut include Ross Tucker, Frisman Jackson, Lee Suggs, and Babatunde Oshinowo. Full details and no-spin analysis coming today on the OBR!

The Browns have announced the full set of roster moves made today in order to get their roster down to 53 players.

Asked to bring their playbook to the coach's office are: DE Darrell Campbell, OT Jon Dunn, CB Therrian Fontenot, QB Darrell Hackney, OL Andrew Hoffman, CB Pete Hunter, WR Frisman Jackson, LB Justin Kurpeikis, FB Corey McIntyre, WR Kendrick Mosley, TE John Owens, S Andrew Pace, CB Jereme Perry, LB Nick Speegle, RB Lee Suggs, C Ross Tucker, OL Dave Yovanovits.

Reported first and exclusively on the OBR

The OBR has learned that today's cuts include one very big surprise already, as Adam Caplan has informed us that team has elected to cut center Ross Tucker. The Browns will go with Lennie Friedman and Rob Smith as the team's two centers. The move also effectively voids the Browns trade with the Patriots, returning their seventh round draft pick. John Taylor has confirmed the report this morning with Tucker's representatives.

In addition, the OBR also reported earlier today in Ask the Insiders that the Browns have decided to cut fullback Corey McIntyre, a loser in the numbers game with the addition of rookie Lawrence Vickers. Despite McIntyre's excellent contributions on special teams, the Browns clearly felt that they could not afford to carry three fullbacks on the roster.

In addition, as reported in our exclusive subscriber forum, the Browns have reportedly decided to keep five receivers, which puts roster spots for Kendrick Mosley and Frisman Jackson at risk.

Updates as we get them!
