We already saw many of Eric Mangini's players (the ones brought in under his watch) cut before the lockout. By the looks of things, the front office probably isn't interested in retaining the ones who are free agents either. According to reports, the Cleveland Browns have lost their first free agent, and he is outside linebacker Jason Trusnik. Trusnik has ties to Miami that made sense for him to go there:

It’s probably safe to assume that offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and new linebacker coach Bryan Cox played a role in endorsing Trusnik, a four-year veteran who played at Northern Ohio, where he was a Division III All-American and was twice named to the All-Ohio Athletic Conference.

So long, Trusnik. He was a decent, but certainly replaceable, player who did what was asked of him the past two years. Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald confirms that Trusnik agreed to a two-year deal.
