A Pro Football Talk report surfaced a few hours ago that the Browns will release Thaddeus Lewis. That report was confirmed by several members of the local media.
Lewis started one game for the Browns last year, starting against the Steelers in the final week of the season. He wasn’t awful, completing 22 of 32 passes for 204 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Lewis has been the third string QB for the last two seasons. The Browns have now gotten rid of two-thirds of their quarterback trio from last season.
The recent addition of Brian Hoyer made Lewis expendable in the eyes of the coaching staff. Hoyer, Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell are the quarterbacks currently on the roster.
