by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (6/17/14) The Browns cut receiver Earl Bennett one month after signing him. That leaves the Browns with Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins and Nate Burleson as their top three wideouts, assuming Josh Gordon receives a long suspension as expected.
Bennett was cut by the Bears earlier this offseason after spending six seasons with them. In those six seasons he played in 78 games and totaled 2,277 yards and 12 touchdowns on 185 catches.
If official, Bennett figures to give the Browns some depth at receiver in the wake of a looming suspension for star wideout Josh Gordon.
