Say goodbye to QB Brogan Roback and WR Jeff Janis.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Friday afternoon, the Cleveland Browns trimmed their roster from 86 players to 72 players by announcing the following transactions:


  • QB Brogan Roback
  • WR Jeff Janis - Contract terminated
  • WR C.J. Board - Waived/injured
  • TE Stephen Baggett
  • OL Anthony Fabiano
  • OL Avery Gennesy
  • OL Fred Lauina


  • DL Jeremy Faulk
  • DL Lenny Jones - Waived/injured
  • DL Blaine Woodson
  • LB Justin Currie - Waived/injured
  • CB Christian Boutte
  • S Elijah Campbell
  • S Derron Smith


Two players were cut who we had making our 53-man roster: WR Jeff Janis and LB Justin Currie (although Currie was waived/injured, meaning he could end up on IR). Neither one is a surprise cut per se. Janis was originally signed as a special teams ace, but a few younger players won out in favor of him this camp.

The team will need to make 19 more cuts before the 4 PM ET deadline on Saturday. Don’t forget to follow our live roster cuts tracker!
