Cleveland Browns prepare for more cuts: ‘We can’t keep them all’
CLEVELAND– Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson fielded questions from members of the media Friday afternoon.
On Thursday night, the Browns fell to the Chicago Bears, 21-7. They also lost the previous preseason games against the Packers, Falcons and Buccaneers.
Jackson said the personnel staff was busy holding meetings and evaluating players Friday as they prepare to make their final cuts. He even said the team could be active when the waiver wire opens.
“We’ve got to tell a lot of young men, that while they’ve done their best, they won’t get a chance to be a part of the team,” Jackson said. Cleveland has to whittle down the wide receiving corps, which includes veterans Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel, and several rookies.
“I think we all know we can’t keep them all.”
Jackson added he’s not worried about rookie wideout and first-round draft pick Corey Coleman. The former Baylor Bear isn’t the first young player to line up in the wrong spot and those mistakes will happened, the head coach said.
The regular season starts for the Browns when they play the Eagles in Philadelphia on Sept. 11.
