Cleveland Browns roster cuts following 2021 training camp

NFL teams are cutting down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Cleveland Browns sort out their roster decisions.

The Cleveland Browns wrapped up the 2021 NFL preseason with a 19-10 win against the Atlanta Falcons on Friday night. The Browns, along with the rest of the 31 NFL teams, will be making roster cuts over the next week to get down to the 53-man limit.

The Browns will have to make some tough cuts on both sides of the football. One position that Cleveland will have to figure out is running back. We already know that Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt are locked into their spots, but how many running backs will the Browns keep? D’Ernest Johnson, Demetric Felton, and John Kelly have all played a plenty in preseason and could each make a case on why they should be on the 53-man roster.
