The Cleveland Browns spent all offseason looking to upgrade their defense after a difficult performance for most of the 2020 season. General manager Andrew Berry was active in free agency as well as the NFL draft to make sure the team was in a better position on the defensive side of the ball.
The offseason included the additions of Jadeveon Clowney, Takk McKinley, Anthony Walker, Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Troy Hill, Greg Newsome II and John Johnson III, among others.
With those additions came a few subtractions. Some ended up with other teams like Tavierre Thomas, Terrance Mitchell, Larry Ogunjobi and Sheldon Richardson. Others ended up on the Browns practice squad including players like Porter Gustin.
At the end of Week 1, there were still a former Browns out there in free agency. On Tuesday of Week 2, two former defensive starters found new homes.
