Browns head coach Pat Shurmur didn't wait long before mixing things up in Cleveland, cutting defensive linemen Shaun Rodgers and Kenyon Coleman, linebackers David Bowens and Eric Barton, offensive tackle John St. Clair and Tight End Robert Royal from the roster late Wednesday afternoon.
Personnel changes were expected when Shurmur took over and players that Mangini/Ryan favored like Bowens were the anticipated candidates. The most notable name though is Rodgers, who came to Cleveland in a trade with Detriot in 2008. After one pro-bowl year with Cleveland in his first season with the Browns, the massive defensive tackle struggled to stay healthy and only started one game last season. With the emergance of Ahtyba Rubin, who anchored Clevelands defensive front last year, Rodgers only notched 17 tackles and two sacks in 2010. Compare those numbers to his '08 season where he racked up 81 tackles and 4.5 sacks -- you can clearly see Rodgers' regression. Rumors of Rodgers questionable work ethic probably didn't help his case either.
Linebackers Bowens and Barton were brought in by Mangini's staff to help implement Rob Ryan's 3-4 defense, but with the Browns new brass moving to a 4-3 system, the veteran backers were cut. Same goes for Kenyon Coleman, who started 14 of Cleveland's 16 games last season at defensive end.
