First cuts

August 25, 2014 - Mike McLain
CLEVELAND -- Browns general manager Ray Farmer announced the first cuts as squads throughout the NFL reach the limit of 75 players.

Final cuts must be made by 4 p.m. Saturday. Rosters will then be at the regular-season limit of 53.

Players waived were: defensive back Royce Adams, running back Edwin Baker, offensive lineman Randall Harris, defensive back T.J. Heath, defensive lineman Cam Henderson, receiver Jonathan Krause, offensive lineman Ryan Lee, linebacker Caleb McSurdy, offensive lineman Keavon Milton, linebacker Keith Pough, receiver Tim Smith, offensive lineman Jeremiah Warren and tight end Martell Webb.

Receiver Anthony Armstrong’s contract was terminated.

None of the cuts came as a surprise. Armstrong caught a bunch of balls during offseason practices but wasn't nearly as productive as training camp unfolded. He had numerous drops and quickly fell behind young receivers like Charles Johnson, Willie Snead IV and Tyler Gabriel.

Armstrong has 35 game appearances since 2010. He had six in 2012 (five with the Dolphins and one with the Cowboys) but hasn't appeared in a game since then.

If Josh Gordon is suspended, which is likely, the final cut will be interesting. Coach Mike Pettine listed Gabriel among the rookies that have played well. Johnson has a good chance of staying -- perhaps on the practice squad -- because of his size 6-2, 215).
