CLEVELAND–The Browns parted company with two more players who were acquired during the previous regime.

The team claimed Fozzy Whittaker from the San Diego Chargers.

While adding Whittaker, the team waived running back Montario Hardesty and wide receiver Josh Cooper.

Hardesty was another running back that former general manager Tom Heckert traded up to acquire.

Cleveland, as most of the football world knows, parted company with Trent Richardson, who was drafted number 3 overall in 2012. Heckert moved up one spot in the draft to acquire him. Hardesty has dealt with a plethora of injuries and was on injured reserve.

Whittaker, is a 5’10”, 205-lb running back in his first NFL season out of Texas. He appeared in three games this season for San Diego and returned 6 kickoffs.

Cooper was a wide receiver out of Oklahoma State where he was a favorite target of Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden.
