Browns release linebacker Jamie Collins

Browns release linebacker Jamie Collins

The team announced they were releasing the former New England Patriots linebacker Wednesday afternoon. "These types of decisions are never easy".

Collins joined the Browns via trade during the 2016 season.

Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reported on Monday that general manager John Dorsey and Cook's agent met over the weekend. It was a surprising move given Hunt's involvement in a physical altercation with a woman last February at a Cleveland hotel. But there were long stretches in which Collins seemed to disappear, and in the end the Browns decided his contract - a four-year, $50 million deal signed in 2017 - didn't match his value.

With Hunt now officially on board in Cleveland, it appears as though fellow Browns running back Duke Johnson Jr. has become a trade chip for the up-and-coming franchise.

While they since have calmed down, Beckham-to-the-Patriots rumors ran wild at the start of the offseason, especially after it was revealed that New England reportedly "aggressively" pursued the star wide receiver ahead of the 2018 season. Considering that the Browns will owe Zeitler $39.2M over the next three years, per Over The Cap, the possibility of trading him away is there for the right price.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Steelers could trade Brown by Friday.

At just 28-years-old, Zeitler is already one of the top guards in the National Football League, and most importantly, is a hard man to get past while in pass protection. But if Collins is interested in a one-year "prove it" deal to try and rebuild his stock, a reunion could be possible.
