Well, the Browns did take a wide receiver last night, and that was apparently enough to change their minds about another one.

According to the league’s daily personnel notice, the Browns have released veteran wideout Saalim Hakim.

They just signed Hakim Monday, after he had taken part in a weekend minicamp as a tryout player. He has spent time with the Jets, showing some degree of promise as a return man.

But whether the addition of first-round wideout Corey Coleman had anything to do with the decision to release Hakim or not, they had a sudden change of heart.
