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 to stand pat with Colt McCoy as Brandon Weeden’s backup however. Rumors suggest that the Browns are interested in acquiring QB A.J. Feeley.
Brown’s LB Scott Fujita was placed on the suspended list and will not count against the team’s 53-man roster. Cleveland also traded S David Sims to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a conditional 2013 draft pick.
Eighteen players were waived by the Browns on Friday-
Dominic Alford OL
Ronnie Cameron DL
Josh Cooper WR
Stanley Daniels OL
James Dockery DB
Garth Gerhart OL
William Green DL
Dan Gronkowski TE
Benjamin Jacobs LB
Ernest Owusu DL
Brian Schaefering DL

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’...
Cleveland Browns backup quarterback Seneca Wallace continues to promote his Colt McCoy hate campaign publicly. Wallace took to the airways to once again say he won’t be Colt McCoy’s mentor. The Cleveland Fans should be happy about that fact. McCoy at least won some games last season that is more than we can say about Seneca Wallace.

In the end of the preseason it was Seneca Wallace who would get the axe in Cleveland, perhaps it was unwillingness to be a team player that cost him his 3 million dollar a year back up job. Or could it be when he was called upon to start in Colt McCoy’s absence last season he couldn’t post a win? Wallace had the nerve not only to not help his team mates become better football...

As the 32 NFL clubs start releasing players in order to meet tonight’s deadline of having a final 53 man roster, some veteran players will be released. This season is no different than any other season with some surprise moves being made at the 11th hour.

With the sale of the Browns just waiting on the official ownership vote,one has to wonder if Mike Holmgren Browns president has already been stripped of his power. All preseason Holmgren hasn’t had much to say. Many were thinking the Browns former backup quarterback Seneca Wallace would stay a Cleveland Brown because of his close ties with Holmgren who brought Wallace with him...
Anytime a team faces that final cut-down to the 53 man roster there are some very difficult decisions to be made. In some cases many of the releases made by the 32 NFL teams are not surprising, but sometimes they are downright shocking. For the Cleveland Browns there are a few shockers to hit the wire on Friday.
QB Seneca Wallace:
Since Brandon Weeden was drafted...
McCoy, who lost his starting job in training camp to rookie Brandon Weeden, is battling Seneca Wallace to be Cleveland's No. 2 QB. McCoy went 2 of 5 for 16 yards and an interception.
In the end, it might have been the numbers that mattered most to the Browns. Colt McCoy's miserable preseason finale on Thursday night didn't cost him his roster spot with the Browns. The numbers were finances. Seneca Wallace was released, clearing his salary which was $1.9 million higher than McCoy's for 2012, and McCoy will stay as the backup to rookie starter Brandon...
Final cuts are due today by 6:00 PM Pacific (the time was previously reported as 1:00). I'll update this post as the names are released, but it's hard to know when that might happen, it could be five minutes from now, later tonight, or as late as sometime tomorrow.In the meantime, it looks like a few ex-Seahawks have been cut by their new teams.
