The Cleveland Browns have released veteran receiver Brian Hartline.
The Cleveland Browns have released veteran receiver Brian Hartline, the team announced Monday.
The move comes after the Browns targeted receivers heavily in the draft, taking four players at the position. Cleveland used their first pick, No. 15, to take receiver Corey Coleman out of Baylor.
Hartline, 30, is the second major contributor at receiver to leave the Browns this off-season, with Travis Benjamin signing with the San Diego Chargers.
An Ohio native, Hartline was fourth on the Browns in receiving last season with 523 yards and two touchdowns on 77 receptions.
He signed with Cleveland before the 2015 season after playing six seasons with the Miami Dolphins.
