On Friday, the Cleveland Browns cut veteran quarterback Brock Osweiler, offensive guard John Greco, defensive lineman Xavier Cooper and kicker Cody Parkey.

The cuts come just a day after the Browns defeated the Chicago Bears 25-0 in their final game of the preseason, which they finished 4-0.

It was anticipated from when he was first traded to the Browns by the Houston Texans in March that Osweiler would not make the final cut. After three average performances during the preseason, it is no surprise that he didn’t make the team.

However, Greco, who started 12 games last season, was a talented lineman who gave the Browns offensive line some depth and experience.

With a defense stacked with young talent, Cooper did not perform as well as his counterparts on the line.

Parkey was in a competition with rookie Zane Gonzalez. Parkey’s cut shows that Cleveland liked what they saw from the rookie out of Arizona State.

The Browns will still owe Osweiler $16 million.

The team has not yet released a statement regarding the releases.

My name is Jacob Gurney and I have always been considered to be “athletically average.” But being a quick learner, I soon accrued an expansive knowledge of the various sports I played growing up. For example, I learned that I am horrible at catching fly balls under pressure and that I can’t dribble a basketball to save my life. Through sports I have gained not only an appreciation for the game, but I have learned valuable lessons as well. I am a die-hard Ohio State Buckeyes fan and I truly believe that college football is life. In addition to the Scarlet and Gray, I root for the Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Cleveland Browns. Growing up a Cleveland fan in rural Northwest Ohio, the most important lesson that I have learned is how to cope with being eternally disappointed and emotionally distraught. Articles will not only be laced with humor, but will also display a willful perpetuation of the endless revolution of many Ohio professional sports fan sentiments—a cycle which constantly fluctuates among unrealistic optimism, aggressive confusion, and numbing sorrow.
