CLEVELAND (AP) The Browns terminated the contracts of defensive lineman Randy Starks and tight end Jim Dray.

Starks started 15 games last season for Cleveland after signing a two-year, $6.5 million free agent contract in March. A two-time Pro Bowler with Miami, the 32-year-old recorded 29 tackles and one sack and was one of Browns' steadiest linemen in 2015.

Dray spent two seasons with the Browns, who signed him as a free agent in 2014 after he spent four seasons with Arizona. Primarily a blocker, the 29-year-old made 16 starts over two seasons, catching 23 passes for 303 yards and one touchdown. Last season, he had six catches for 61 yards.

Dray had a career-high 17 catches for 242 yards in 2014.
