  • Browns release LB Chris Gocong, S Young

    Browns released LB Chris Gocong and S Usama Young.
    Coming off a torn right Achilles' tendon, Gocong was owed an untenable $4.55 million in salary and a workout bonus. Transitioning to a 3-4 defense, he was clearly never a part of the Browns' plans. Gocong is 29 and should be recovered from the Achilles' tear soon seeing as it occurred early last August. He figures to receive minimum-salary contract offers. Young struggled as an 11-game starter in 2012. The Browns need a new starting free safety.
