The Cleveland Browns have cut four players after the first week of virtual camp. Wide receiver Tony Brown, linebacker Jermaine Grace, defensive end George Obinna, and defensive tackle Justin Zimmer are the players that have been cut. The Zimmer cut was flagged for a non-football injury. Zimmer played 30 snaps on defense last season. Grace played in 12 games for the Falcons last season. The final two players cut were undrafted free agent signings this offseason.
Coach Kevin Stefanski stated last week the Browns would work in split squads this week in camp. The plan to do so was likely in place knowing the cuts were coming. Stefanski seems to be going the extra cautious route running his program. The Browns announced four cuts on Friday that drop them to that 80-players limit. The drop from 90 to 80 players is a part of the modifications made to the Collective Bargaining Agreement by the NFL and NFLPA. Teams can have more than 80 players through August 16 as long as they work in split squads.
We are about to go through what may be the strangest training camp and NFL season we have ever seen. One thing that won’t change is the cuts will keep coming so check-in frequently with Overtime Heroics football to keep up with everything NFL and Cleveland Browns.
