Browns Say Goodbye to David Veikune, Last Year's Second Round Pick

New, comments

You thought that by David Veikune making the roster cut on Saturday that his job was safe? Think again. The Cleveland Browns waived last year's second-round pick to make room for cornerback  Derrick Roberson, not to be confused with defensive lineman Derreck Robinson.

Releasing Veikune is sure to draw some mixed opinions from fans due to how high he was drafted in 2009. I had him on my original cut list, and it looks like I was right. The team might not fully give up on him -- if he clears waivers, you'd imagine the team would stash him on their practice squad.

Roberson was just released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, so the team may also be using him for some inside information just for this week. He played in six games with Tampa Bay last season.
