Browns Cut 6 Players Including DB Aaron Ross & LB Moise Fokou


The Cleveland Browns announced the release of six players on Monday, as they work to get their roster down to 75 players before tomorrow’s deadline.

Among the players either released or waived are:

Fokou, 29, is a former seventh-round pick of the Eagles back in 2009. He spent three years in Philadelphia before brief stints with the Colts, Titans, and Saints.

Cleveland signed him to a contract just a few weeks ago, so the odds where against him making the team in such a short period of time.

In 2014, Fokou was limited to appearing in just two games and recording two tackles for the Saints.

Ross, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Giants back in 2007. He played out his rookie contract with New York before signing a three-year contract with the Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent in March of 2012.

However, his time Jacksonville was short lived, as the team cut him loose just one year into his contract. Ross later returned to the Giants before signing on with the Ravens in June of last year.

In 2014, Ross was limited to appearing in just four games after he sustained a torn Achilles tendon and was subsequently placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Brown, 28, was taken with No. 43 overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers, but lasted just two season before being released. He signed with the Cowboys in October of last season in order to add some much needed depth at defensive line.
