CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns rookie coach Kevin Stefanski has his first 53-man roster. It won’t stay the same for long.
Cleveland made 24 cuts on Saturday to get to the league’s mandated 53-man limit, releasing a few notable names, including defensive end Chad Thomas, a third-round pick in 2018, and running back Dontrell Hilliard, who handled return duties last season.
Interestingly, Stefanski is going with just two quarterbacks — Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum — out of the gate.
Third-stringer Garrett Gilbert, a close friend of Mayfield’s, was cut but could be added to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
