Browns release veteran DT Richardson in salary-cap move

CLEVELAND (AP) This off-season remodeling of the Browns' defense includes a surprising removal.

Veteran tackle Sheldon Richardson's contract was terminated on Friday, a head-scratching move that creates more salary-cap space but also a hole in the middle of Cleveland's defensive line.

Days after adding free agent end Jadeveon Clowney, the Browns parted with Richardson, who started 16 games last season and played well for the team since signing a three-year, $37 million contract with Cleveland in 2019.
