All NFL teams must get down to 75 players by 4 p.m. ET on Monday.

Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers.
Kind of the opposite of last week.
We could name an awful lot of losers from this past weekend. But let’s start with the positives-
WINNER: Josh Gordon. Three catches for 50 yards, and a highlight reel play over Nnamdi Asomugha. Well, highlight reel for the...
The Browns had to cut the roster down to 75 today. After yesterday’s cuts, which were offense heavy, we expected to see some defensive players let loose today.
The players asked to bring the playbook to the coach’s office were Marcus Benard, Auston English, and Antwuan Reed. Additionally, Chris Gocong and Emmanuel Acho were put on IR with Phil Taylor being placed on the PUP list...
Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden knows he needs to get a grip.
Weeden has already fumbled three times during the exhibition season, losing the ball twice and costing Cleveland points with his turnovers. In Friday's 27-10 loss to Philadelphia, Weeden fumbled twice in the first quarter. The first one wasn't his fault as his protection broke down on a botched screen...
Pat Shurmur walked into quite the situation when being hand-picked by team president Mike Holmgren to coach the Cleveland Browns prior to the 2011 season. Since their return to the NFL in 1999, the Browns have been through six head coaches in that 13 year time period with very little success. Every single move Shurmur made would be critiqued to an almost unnecessary degree by media...
Browns running back Montario Hardesty started in place of Trent Richardson (knee) again this week, but didn't look good at all and may have lost his spot as the No. 2 guy. He rushed for 12 yards on eight carries vs. Philadelphia, and more importantly, fumbled for the second week in a row.Fantasy Spin:At this point we are not sure whether Hardesty or Brandon Jackson is the correct...
Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden struggled against the Eagles on Friday night, going 9-of-20 for 117 yards and fumbling twice.Fantasy Spin:Weeden and a mediocre set of receivers are a long way from being fantasy worthy and you should stay away, stay far away, on draft day.
Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor was placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list and will miss at least the first six weeks of the season. Taylor is recovering from offseason pectoral surgery. After the first six weeks of the season, the Browns will have three weeks to either activate him or place Taylor on injured reserve. Cleveland also waived/injured defensive...
Naturally, it was all a smokescreen. Right? “Of interest mainly to fans who endure paying full price for half value, the Browns’ exhibition home opener Friday against Philadelphia was one in which neither team wanted to show much. That was to avoid tipping off their wilier designs before the regular-season opener between the teams in 16 days.
The Browns’ starters, if nothing...
