As the Browns continue to gradually pare down the roster, safety Ed Reynolds II and defensive end Cam Johnson were released.

Johnson logged 12 games with the browns last year, amassing 32 tackles and 3 sacks. Reynolds, a third year player out of Stanford, was waived with an injury designation. Last season, Reynolds racked up 40 tackles and 1 sack over 10 games. Entering the preseason, Ed was expected to compete for a starting role at Safety. However with his injury and the rising performance of rookie Jabrill Peppers, the Browns decided to move in another direction.

Currently, there is no indication that the Browns have filled their roster spots with new players; should new information become available, this article will be updated accordingly. The team’s roster now sits at 85 players, with a cutdown to 53 forthcoming after the final preseason game.
