Waiting For Next Year:
Everyone in the Browns media is reporting it so we’ll go with Nate Ulrich who had the most descriptive tweets. Ulrich reports the following players are on the Browns’ practice squad.
Linebackers Solomon Elimimian and Ben Jacobs
DT Ronnie Cameron
C Garth Gerhard
G Jarrod Shaw
T Jeff Shugarts
WR Josh Cooper
FB Brad Smelley
That’s eight, so that’s it. No Adonis Thomas and I haven’t seen his name pop up yet for anyone else either.
In addition, the Browns have been awarded Lineback Tank Carder from Buffalo and Defensive Tackle Ishmaa’ily Kitchen from Baltimore.
Carder is a former member of TCU. Kitchen is a 334 pound monster from Kent State.
I believe this means the Browns will have two more cuts forthcoming as the waiver pickups aren’t eligible for the practice squad. I think they have to make the 53-man roster. So, we’ll keep you updated as details come out.

It has been pretty clear since training camp started that Brandon Weeden was the Cleveland Browns starting quarterback.
Despite Pat Shurmur saying it was a competition with Colt McCoy, it was ended quickly by Brandon Weeden’s performance in camp. When I watched the first padded practice for the Browns, it was easy to see that Brandon Weeden's physical ability gives the Browns...
According to several reports, including Patrick McManamon and Tony Grossi, the Browns have cut QB Seneca Wallace.
The move all but assures Colt McCoy of the back-up QB job and that he won’t be traded. Thaddeus Lewis will likely make the 53 man roster as the third string QB.
After the game last night, Wallace hinted that there was a possibility that ‘something would have to happen’...
The Cleveland Browns should have found a way to keep David Sims on the roster. This guy was a beast at safety and with the Browns secondary always getting beat up having a guy like Sims is like having a great insurance policy on a house in a hurricane zone, you never know when the storm is going to hit and when it does you can move right on without even missing a beat. Sims had a...

According to the player’s twitter feed, it appears as though Safety David Sims has not made the roster-
The Browns have not released any information as of yet on releases today. Sims impressed in camp and preseason games with a few interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns.
More details to come as they are available.
The Cleveland Browns made a series of roster moves on Friday in order to reach the NFL required 53-man roster limit. Two veteran players were released. TE Evan Moore and QB Seneca Wallace. Both players are vested veterans and will be free to sign with any other franchise immediately without having to go through waivers. The release of Wallace might not signal that Cleveland is content...
From the Browns-
“The Cleveland Browns today were awarded linebacker Tank Carder off waivers from Buffalo and defensive lineman Ishmaa’ily Kitchen (pronounced: ish-MAY-lee) off waivers from Baltimore. In addition, the team waived defensive lineman Brian Sanford and waived/injured defensive lineman Scott Paxson.
The team also signed eight players to its practice squad. Linebacker...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Seneca Wallace threw a touchdown on his last pass in Thursday's exhibition. Turns out, it was his last pass for the Browns.
The veteran quarterback was waived Friday by Cleveland, a move that seems to indicate the team will keep former starter Colt McCoy as a backup to rookie Brandon Weeden. Wallace was released along with tight end Evan Moore, a person familiar...
The Cleveland Browns terminated the contract of Tight End Evan Moore on Friday and on Saturday the Seahawks cut Kellen Winslow and added Evan Moore to their roster. Moore had missed time in training camp with some injuries and the Browns didn’t feel the need to retain his services. Moore now will join the Seattle Seahawks and his skills will be used on the West coast. Moore showed...
Tom Heckert spoke with the media this afternoon-
(On if he was expecting to have 15 rookies on the roster coming into camp)- “I’m going to be totally honest with you, (Neal Gulkis) just told me that. I didn’t really know it was 15 so it’s obviously not something that we planned. I don’t know if Pat (Shurmur) told you guys, but you can see there are some unorthodox – maybe...
According to ESPN Cleveland, the Browns are not ruling out running back Trent Richardson (knee) for the season opener, even though he has yet to practice.Fantasy Spin:Richardson was back on the practice field Saturday, riding a stationary bike. Browns coach Pat Shurmur said, "If (Richardson) plays, he will be ready to go and play the whole game." That should help fantasy...

Maybe Penn State and Michigan losing were bad for the Big 10 (and therefor Ohio State), but I won’t act like I didn’t enjoy it happen. “I sat and watched Big Ten football...

With Sept. 9 rapidly approaching, the Browns are optimistic rookie running back and first-round pick Trent Richardson will be ready to play.
Trent Richardson is expected to play the whole game if he’s cleared for Week 1.
Richardson was back at practice Saturday riding a bike on the sidelines. While this is good news for owners and he appears to be in line to play next week, keep in mind he likely won’t see a heavy workload. If you own him you’re obviously going to start him, just temper any lofty expectations....
