Veteran wide receiver Nate Burleson became the latest big name casualty during the NFL’s cut down period as teams try to get to their 53-man roster.
Burleson was cut by the Browns despite the team having needs at the receiver position.
The #Browns, who may be in the market for a veteran WR today, have cut one of those: Nate Burleson. Headed to the facility now.
