To make room for the roster moves the Cleveland Browns made earlier in the day, the team announced that the following three players were waived from the team:
- OT Corey Hilliard
- LB Marcus Benard
- DB Bret Lockett
Besides the three players we reported that the Browns signed earlier, they also added DB Marquis Floyd to the 53-man roster. Floyd was on the Seattle Seahawks practice squad last year and was one of their final cuts this year. For those who missed it earlier, the other three players to sign were RB Cedric Peerman (Baltimore), RT Phil Trautwein (St. Louis), and CB DeAngelo Smith (Dallas).
The Browns also reached an injury settlement with OL Fred Weary, so he is no longer with the team. It'll be interesting to see if a settlement is soon reached with veteran Ryan Tucker.
As for the players the Browns waived, don't be surprised if at least Benard and Lockett end up on the team's practice squad.
