They say the first cut is the deepest but there were no real surprises as the Browns cut the roster down to 65 before the final cut Saturday.

Defensive back Howard Wilson was placed on the PUP/Reserve List after breaking his knee cap in rookie training camp.

The Browns terminated the contracts of WR Josh Boyce and DL Brandon Thompson while waiving receivers Mario Alford, Rasheed Bailey, and Richard Mullaney; defensive backs Christian Bryant, Trey Caldwell, J.D. Harmon, Alvin Hill, and Channing Stribling; linebackers B.J. Bello and Ladell Fleming; tight ends Nate Iese and Taylor McNamara; offensive lineman Kitt O’Brien; defensive line Karter Schult; and running back Brandon Wilds.

The final roster will have to be at 53 Saturday at 4 PM.
