Browns Roster Cuts 2014: WR Anthony Armstrong Among the Team's 14 Cuts

New, comments

The Cleveland Browns announced 14 roster moves just before noon on Monday, getting their roster down from 90 players to 76 players. They have to make one more roster move prior to the Tuesday deadline.

Bragging Rights: If we're keeping score, none of the 14 players removed from the roster today were on my list for projected the players expected to be on the Browns' 53-man roster.

Players Terminated

  • WR Anthony Armstrong - A veteran receiver with ties to Kyle Shanahan, Armstrong is the closest thing to a surprise cut among today's moves. He was the star of OTAs and minicamp at the wide receiver position, but as training camp went on, I commented on his steady decline in involvement. I anticipated his departure.

Players Waived

  • RB Edwin Baker - He was effective at the end of last season, but was not given an opportunity this camp. He could still go on the practice squad.
  • WR Jonathan Krause - That play where he wasn't looking for the ball against the Lions might have signaled the end.
  • WR Tim Smith - Mid-camp signing, therefore didn't have a good shot.
  • TE Martell Webb - Mid-camp signing, therefore didn't have a good shot.
  • OL Randall Harris - Spent all of camp on the injury report.
  • OL Ryan Lee - Mid-camp signing, therefore didn't have a good shot.
  • OL Keavon Milton - The transition from tight end to the offensive line never gained enough traction for Miltion.
  • OL Jeremiah Warren - Once Alex Parsons came back from injury early in training camp, Warren's value lessened. He was also poor at snapping the ball early in camp.
  • DL Cam Henderson - Aside from Armstrong, Henderson probably made the biggest impact in camp. All of Cleveland's defensive linemen were solid, so we'll see if he gets a shot on the practice squad.
  • ILB Caleb McSurdy - Mid-camp signing, therefore didn't have a good shot.
  • OLB Keith Pough - Mid-camp signing, therefore didn't have a good shot, however he did have a connection to Mike Pettine in Buffalo last year.
  • CB Royce Adams - Mid-camp signing, therefore didn't have a good shot. Also, being burned over and over in the Redskins game made this an easy decision.
  • CB T.J. Heath - Even when the Browns were very thin at cornerback this past week, Heath barely saw any reps.
