Browns make final cuts at deadline

The Cleveland Browns announced Sunday that they have reached the 53-man roster limit.

The Browns terminated the contracts of tight end Evan Moore and veteran backup quarterback Seneca Wallace, who played in 14 games (seven starts) over the past two seasons in Cleveland, throwing for 1,261 on 119-of-208 passing and six touchdowns.

Over seven years with Seattle and Cleveland, Wallace has connected on 452- of-764 passes for 4,808 yards and 31 touchdowns in 62 games (21 starts).

The Browns waived the following players: offensive linemen Dominic Alford, Stanley Daniels, Garth Gerhart, Jarrod Shaw and Jeff Shugarts, defensive linemen Ronnie Cameron, William Green, Ernest Owusu, Brian Schaefering and Kiante Tripp, wide receivers Josh Cooper and Rod Windsor, defensive back James Dockery, tight end Dan Gronkowski, linebackers Benjamin Jacobs and Quinton Spears, fullback Brad Smelley and running back Adonis Thomas.

Cleveland also traded safety David Sims to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a conditional 2013 draft choice.

With linebacker Scott Fujita on the suspended list for the first three games of the season for his role in the bounty scandal, the Browns are at the 53-man roster limit.
