The Browns have cut linebacker Brian Smith, a league source confirmed tonight for the Beacon Journal.
The team has yet to announce the move.
Smith spent training camp with the Browns last summer as an undrafted free agent from Notre Dame. He was signed to the practice squad on Nov. 29 and then to the active roster on Dec. 20. He appeared in the Browns’ final two games last season in a reserve role.
The move was made in part to clear room for the 15 undrafted free agents whom the Browns are in the process of signing. Once those signings become official, the Browns will meet the offseason roster limit of 90 players, which includes the team's 11 recent draft picks. The Browns could announce their undrafted free-agent signings as early as Wednesday.
