Although there was some big news about the Cleveland Browns signing a wide receiver today, there was also a lot of news about former members of the team.

In other former Browns news, just a couple of days after the Jacksonville Jaguars signed Mohamed Massaquoi to a contract, the Detroit Lions released Brian Robiskie. Here's how our DBN Twitter feed responded to the news:
