The Cleveland Browns are on a quarterback cutting spree Wednesday, as not too long after the team announced the release of former first-round draft pick Brandon Weeden, the team announced that they’ve delivered the same fate to veteran backup, Jason Campbell.

Again, this marks the second quarterback the Browns have cut on Wednesday within a one-hour time span, proving that the new regime is committed to revamping the entire organization in 2014, or at least beginning the process.
Campbell was scheduled to make a roster bonus on Thursday in the are of $250,000 and was due to make $3 million this upcoming season, so the move isn’t that much of a surprise.
This move now opens up the possibility even more that the team will take one of the big three quarterbacks in the upcoming NFL Draft this May, or they could take the dark horse Derek Carr as has been rumored.
But for now, Brian Hoyer is the only option following the cuts.
