Players Who Will Not Be Returning to Cleveland in 2024


With a few days passing, the Browns will obviously not be having the exact same team from 2023 to 2024. It is common for players to come and go. Some players are staying, but there are also some that have touched our hearts and are now unfortunately moving on. The first thing I will say is the NFL is a business first, so it really is nothing personal when these players leave even though it can be sad.

One of the most heart-breaking losses for fans this offseason is not resigning QB Joe Flacco. It was clear the Browns decided to go in another direction by signing former Saints QB Jameis Winston as the next backup quarterback. Flacco agreed with the Indianapolis Colts to a one-year deal.

After five seasons with the Browns, LB Sione Takitaki has signed a contract to join the New England Patriots. This one is very bittersweet as the Browns drafted Takitaki in the 2019 NFL draft and has been with us all the way until now. As I said earlier, this league is a business, and players want to get the best deal to make the most money they can. We wish Takitaki the best of luck in New England!

Some other players the Cleveland Browns have lost in this offseason is LB Anthony Walker Jr., DT Jordan Elliott, TE Harrison Bryant, OL Nick Harris, and CB Mike Ford.

Walker Jr. has signed with the Miami Dolphins after spending three seasons in Cleveland. Elliott has signed with the San Francisco 49ers after four seasons in Cleveland. Bryant has signed with the Las Vegas Raiders after four seasons in Cleveland. Harris has joined the Seattle Seahawks after four seasons in Cleveland. Last, but not least, Ford has joined the Houston Texans after just a single season in Cleveland.

We at Cleveland Sports Talk wish all of these players the best of luck! Once a Cleveland Brown always a Cleveland Brown!
