A day before the deadline for getting to 75 players, the Browns have moved from 89 players to 80.

Gone are: offensive lineman Jake Anderson, offensive lineman Matt Cleveland, defensive back Emanuel Davis, linebacker JoJo Dickson, punter Spencer Lanning, receiver Carlton Mitchell, receiver Bert Reed, receiver Jermaine Saffold, and receiver Owen Spencer.

Mitchell was a sixth-round pick in 2010. He appeared in 11 games last season and three as a rookie in 2010. He has three career receptions.

All players will be subject to the waivers system. The Browns need to cut five more players before Monday at 4:00 p.m. ET.
