Browns release Leon McFadden

The Browns are parting ways with their third-round pick from the 2013 NFL Draft.

The club will waive cornerback Leon McFadden, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Saturday. PFT has confirmed the Browns will release McFadden, a San Diego State product.

McFadden (5-10, 190) played in all 16 games for Cleveland in 2013, making 19 tackles. He made two starts.

The Browns have also waived offensive guard Garrett Gilkey, a 2013 seventh-round pick, the Plain Dealer reported.

Of the Browns’ five 2013 picks, only outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo (Round One) and defensive end Armonty Bryant (Round Seven) remain on the roster. However, three of the Browns’ five picks were final-day selections. The club also acquired a pair of 2014 draft picks during the ’13 draft.
