The Cleveland Browns released a list today of the 28 players who are participating in rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. This is in addition to 29 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.
Three years ago under Mike Pettine, the Browns had an astounding 50 players at rookie minicamp who were there simply on a tryout basis. The past two seasons, Hue Jackson only had 14 and 17 players trying out, respectively. So 28 players trying out this year is a steep increase under John Dorsey’s watch. Cleveland’s roster currently stands at 88 players. If the team wants to sign more than two of the players participating on a tryout basis, they will have to waive a few of their other players.
