Paul Kruger blasts Cleveland Browns after contract terminated
BEREA, Ohio– Linebacker Paul Kruger criticized the Cleveland Browns after his contract was terminated.
The team announced a round of cuts Monday morning, which includes Kruger and back-up quarterback Austin Davis. The Browns also waived eight other players.
Minutes after Cleveland sent out the news release, Kruger took to Twitter to express his displeasure.
“Although completely miss handled (sic), unfortunate and absolutely the wrong decision to release me I do wish the Browns and especially my teammate brothers great success,” Kruger posted on his verified Twitter account.
The veteran pass rusher thanked owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam, and the fans, adding he will miss wearing a Browns No. 99 jersey.
The Baltimore Ravens drafted Kruger in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He spent the last three seasons with the Browns.
