BREAKING: Cleveland Browns Cut QB Brock Osweiler
Brock Osweiler came into the new year as a member of the Houston Texans after signing a massive $72 million deal, but was ultimately traded exactly one year later to the Cleveland Browns.
Reports surfaced that the team would ultimately cut him, but they elected to let him go through training camp and preseason to fight for the starting position.
He failed horribly, losing out to a rookie QB. And on Friday, he learned his fate.
Browns releasing QB Brock Osweiler, as @nfldraftscout said.
Browns owe him $16 million, but Cleveland gets Houston’s 2018 second-round pick.

The #Browns traded for QB Brock Osweiler, thinking they’d cut him. Then tried to play him, start him, then trade him again… now cut.
