Besides Jason McCourty, nine other players were let go by Cleveland.

Besides the big news that the Cleveland Browns have terminated the contract of veteran cornerback Jason McCourty, the team announced nine other roster cuts on Thursday. The only other somewhat recognizable name is wide receiver Sammie Coates, who had tweeted about his release earlier in the day.

2 Players Terminated
  • CB Jason McCourty
  • CB B.W. Webb
8 Played Waived
  • RB Josh Rounds
  • WR Sammie Coates
  • OL Zach Banner
  • OL Joseph Cheek
  • DL Ricky Ali’ifua
  • DL Collin Bevins
  • LB Jeremy Cash
  • DB Trevon Hartfield

So far, none of the players from my “roster casualties” article have been let go. There is no particular rush for those players to be cut, though, and those decisions could come after the 2018 NFL Draft, when the club will have a clearer picture of what holes they were able to fill.
