(8/30/14) The Browns have cut veteran wide receiver Nate Burleson, sourses have told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Jason LaCanfora: Several notable veterans could be released

(8/29/14) The release of Bengals former featured back BenJarvus Green-Ellis is not the only significant move that will be made by NFL teams involving veterans, per CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.
La Canfora is speculating that the Browns could part with Nate Burleson and that the Jets might let go of fellow wide receiver Stephen Hill. The former has been limited by injury in the preseason while the latter has proven disappointing throughout his young career.
Also on the bubble, according to La Canfora, is Patriots backup quarterback Ryan Mallett, though he is likely to stay because of the team's possible decision to keep three players at that position.
Browns unveil lengthy inactives for third preseason game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/14) The Browns have a lengthy list of players sidelined for Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, as a result of a slew of injuries in recent weeks.
The Browns inked Nate Burleson this spring after the Lions released him to save some cap space. The veteran will play alongside Josh Gordon after playing across from Calvin Johnson and Randy Moss in previous stops. Too bad he never got Fantasy points like those guys did. On a roster with several younger, faster receivers in Cleveland, Burleson is unlikely to post numbers like what he had when he first arrived to Detroit and didn't break limbs. You can safely pass on Burleson in drafts this summer.
