    The Browns will have to pick up some DBs cast off by other teams since they got rid of Francies and Smith. They are thin in the secondary. Otherwise, no surprises so far.

    Braxton and Matthews will probably find themselves on the practice squad, unless they’re picked up by another team on waivers.

    CB Parrish Cox might be an option. Denver just cut him. Could be a dime back and deep backup for Cleveland.

    Cox will have a difficult time playing anywhere but a prison yard.

    Octavien looked like a very physical player, too bad
