After the Browns released Linebacker Karlos Dansby, the next move was to cut veteran Wide Receiver Dwyane Bowe.

It might be the best news for Browns fans of the entire off-season up to this point.
After losing four quality starters to free-agency and then upsetting the fan base by releasing Dansby, this is perhaps one move that can bring the front office back in the good graces of the Dawg Pound.
The Browns are rather thin at wide receiver, but Bowe was unlikely to help that situation if he remained in Cleveland anyway. The future of Josh Gordon is still up in the air (Browns fans are hoping it doesn’t go up in smoke,) but with Travis Benjamin gone it will be interesting to see if the front office addresses the position through free-agency, a trade, the draft, or maybe all of the above.
