The Browns are set to part ways with a recent mainstay in their RB corps.
The club will release tailback Chris Ogbonnaya, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
PFT has confirmed Ogbonnaya’s departure.
A fifth-year pro, the 28-year-old Ogbonnaya has appeared in 42 regular season games since joining Cleveland in 2011, rushing for 604 yards on 130 carries (4.6 yards per rush) and catching 95 passes for 695 yards and two TDs (7.3 yards per catch). Ogbonnaya (6-0, 225) has played fullback and tailback and can contribute in the passing game, all of which could help him garner interest elsewhere.
With Ogbonnaya and Dion Lewis set to be released, the Browns could be ready to keep rookie Isaiah Crowell as their third back behind Ben Tate and Terrance West.
