Browns cut Orchard, 'Hard Knocks' star Cajuste, 17 others

CLEVELAND (AP) — Tight end Devon Cajuste, who became an overnight favorite with Browns fans after appearing on HBO's "Hard Knocks," was one of 19 players cut by the team.

With his long hair and devotion to crystals, Cajuste earned a following but that didn't help him secure a spot on the 53-man roster Saturday.

Other notable cuts for Cleveland included: defensive end Nate Orchard, fullback Danny Vitale, offensive lineman Spencer Drango, running back Matthew Dayes and cornerback Mike Jordan — all of whom either started or played significant roles over the past few seasons.

Cleveland also acquired defensive lineman Devaroe Lawrence from New Orleans for a seventh-round draft pick in 2019.
