The Cleveland Browns released a list today of the 17 players who are participating in rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. This is in addition to 28 other players who are there between the team's draft picks, undrafted free agents who were signed to the 90-man roster, and some first-year players who are already on the Browns' roster.
Two years ago under Mike Pettine, the Browns had an astounding 50 players at rookie minicamp who were there on a tryout basis. Hue Jackson kept things much tamer last year with 14 tryout players, followed by 17 this year. Cleveland's roster currently stands at 89 players. If the team wants to several of the players participating on a tryout basis, they will have to waive a few of their other players.
