BEREA, Ohio (AP) The Cleveland Browns cut veteran wide receiver Brian Hartline on Monday.

Hartline, 29, spent only one season with the Browns. A native of nearby Canton, Ohio, he had 46 receptions for 523 yards and two touchdowns in 2015 after signing a two-year deal worth $6 million, including $3 million guaranteed.

Cleveland will save $3 million against the salary cap.

The Browns drafted four receivers in April, including their first-round pick, Corey Coleman of Baylor.

Hartline spent his first six NFL seasons with the Dolphins. His best seasons were 2012 and 2013, when he had more than 1,000 yards receiving in both years.
