Browns cut David Nelson

The Cleveland Browns have released former Buffalo Bills wide receiver David Nelson.

Nelson tore his anterior cruciate ligament last year and had a bone bruise that hampered him in training camp.

Nelson was sidelined all of last season after catching 61 passes for 658 yards and five touchdowns in 2011.

His Browns contract included only $25,000 in guaranteed money.

The Browns have Josh Gordon and Greg Little as the starters and Davone Bess as the third wide receiver.
