  • Adrian Clayborn: Cut loose by Browns

    The Browns released Clayborn on Tuesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    This move provides the Browns roughly $3 million in salary-cap space when the new league year begins March 17. Clayborn played 14 games for the Browns in 2020, averaging 27 defensive snaps per contest and producing 12 tackles, 3.5 sacks and a pass breakup. The 32-year-old defensive end will seek his fourth team in four years.

  • Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Steps into starting role

    Clayborn will start at defensive end Sunday against the Steelers with Olivier Vernon (Achilles) sidelined, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    Vernon will be out indefinitely after rupturing his Achilles during the final game of the regular season, opening up the starting spot. Clayborn filled a rotational role for most of the season and had 12 tackles (six solo), 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble in 15 games. Porter Gustin should also see more playing time for Cleveland.

  • Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Out for Week 4

    Clayborn (hip) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

    Clayborn's next chance to suit up will come Week 5 against the Colts, if he's able to shake his hip injury. With Olivier Vernon (abdomen) considered questionable for Sunday's game, the Browns defensive end corps could be depleted against Dallas.

  • Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Draws start Sunday

    Clayborn (hip) is active Sunday against the Washington Football Team.

  • Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Back at practice Friday

    Clayborn (hip) practiced Friday and is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus Washington, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Clayborn missed the first two days of practice, but he has a chance to play Sunday because he participated in Friday's session. If he's able to suit up, a potential starting opportunity awaits since Olivier Vernon (abdomen) has been ruled out. Clayborn has a sack in each of the first two games this season.

  • Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Starts week with missed practice

    Clayborn (hip) didn't practice Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Clayborn hurt his hip in last week's win over Cincinnati, which he started due to Olivier Vernon's (abdomen) absence. Vernon was also a no-go at Wednesday's practice, and if neither guy is able to heal up in time for Sunday's game against Washington, the Browns would be shorthanded on the defensive line.
