The Cleveland Browns had been busy making roster cuts to get down to the limit of 53 players by the 9 a.m. ET deadline on Friday, and the latest to go are safety David Sims, cornerback James Dockery and tight end Dan Gronkowski. Some of the moves came as a surprise, considering that Browns blog Dawgs By Nature expected Sims to make the team over injured safety Usama Young. Here are some tweets about the latest departures:
