NFL roster cuts 2013: Browns cut down to 53 players and zero kickers


The Browns don't have a kicker after releasing two Saturday.

The Cleveland Browns officially released 14 players on Saturday to meet the league's 53-man roster requirement before a 6 p.m. ET deadline. Both of the team's kickers, Shayne Graham and rookie Brandon Bogotay, were among the cuts, leaving Cleveland with a position completely unfilled just over a week before the season begins.

Along with the 14 departures, the Browns also placed wide receiver Josh Gordon on the NFL's suspended list. The league suspended Gordon for two games due to a violation of the substance abuse policy this summer, so he'll be eligible to return Week 3.

The full list of players cut Saturday is below. All of these players were placed on waivers except for Graham, who had his contract terminated.

OL Aaron Adams
DB Akeem Auguste
K Brandon Bogotay
LB Justin Cole
RB Jamaine Cook
DL Hall Davis

WR Tori Gurley
