BEREA, Ohio — It didn’t take long for John Dorsey to make his first decision as the general manager of the Cleveland Browns. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the team has released wide receiver Kenny Britt.
After signing a 4-year, $32.5 million deal with Cleveland this past offseason, Britt has been considered one of the NFL’s biggest free agent busts of 2017. In 9 games, the former Rutgers standout tallied just 18 receptions for 233 yards and 2 touchdowns. He was also considered a disappointment off the field, having been sent home from the team’s trip from Houston after missing curfew.
In releasing Britt less than a year into his contract, the Browns will take a $5,625,000 cap hit. The team will owe Britt $10.5 million between his salary and signing bonus.
