Browns get down to their 53-man roster
9/1/2013, 9:18 a.m.
In order to get down to the mandated 53-man roster that is required by the NLF's rules, the Browns had to make quite a few moves by 4pm on yesterday (Saturday) to meet their demands.
The team terminated the contract of K Shane Graham and placed Josh Gordon on the Reserve/suspended list. The following players were waived by the Browns; OL Aaron Adams; DB Akeem Auguste; K Brandon Bogotay; CB Justin Cole; RB Jamaine Cook; DL Hall Davis; WR Tori Gurley; LB James-Michael Johnson; WR David Nelson; WR Naaman Roosevelt; DL Brian Sanford; DB Jamoris Slaughter and hometown hopeful, LB Justin Staples.
Clubs can establish an eight man practice squad after 12 noon ET today (Sunday). Expect the Browns to make a few moves before that time.
With the Browns parting ways with both Graham and Bogotay, they currently do not have a kicker on their roster.
