Source: Browns cut Nate Burleson

The Cleveland Browns have cut veteran wide receiver Nate Burleson after he signed a one-year contract with them this offseason, according to a league source.

Burleson also visited the Miami Dolphins during free agency and they could be a logical landing spot.

Burleson is entering his 12th season in the NFL.

His first three years in the NFL were spent in Minnesota before signing an offer sheet with Seattle in 2006. After the 2009 season, Burleson signed a free agent deal with the Lions and spent the previous four seasons in Detroit.

For his career, Burleson has totaled 5,630 yards and 39 touchdowns.

His most productive year came in 2004, when he recorded 1,006 yards and nine touchdowns with the Vikings.
