NFL Roster Cuts: Cleveland Browns Released Eight To Get To 80 Players

The Cleveland Browns needed to cut eight players by Tuesday afternoon to get down to the 80-man roster limit and that's what they did on Monday releasing eight players

Here are the Browns NFL roster cuts: defensive back Brett Johnson, defensive lineman Kyle Anderson and Jabari Fletcher, defensive back Darian Hagan, wide receiver Jonathan Haggerty, wide receiver Juan Nunez, quarterback Troy Weatherhead and kicker Jeff Wolfert.

Training camp rosters were expanded from 80 to 90 players this year and the first cut down is on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. (ET). Many teams, like the Browns, weren't at the 90-man limit, likely because of the shortened offseason.

The Browns now sit at 80 players on the roster and, by Sept. 3, they'll need to get down to 53 players. The challenge is not only figuring out which players you're going to cut, but also watching the market to see which players other teams cut.
