Cleveland Browns terminate contracts of T.J. Carrie, three others

The Cleveland Browns made four roster moves Monday when they terminated contracts of four players.

CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns made some changes to their roster Monday with one surprising name on the cut list.

The Browns sent out a release announcing the termination of the contracts for cornerback T.J. Carrie, tight end Demetrius Harris, guard Eric Kush and linebacker Adarius Taylor, all of whom were signed by Cleveland during the tenure of former general manager John Dorsey.

Carrie’s departure was surprising because he made 14 starts in 32 games with the Browns over the 2018 and 2019 seasons, and his presence proved to be a calming influence when cornerbacks Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams each missed a month due to hamstring injuries suffering in the final practice before a Sunday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3 last year.

During his two years with the Browns, Carrie registered 126 total tackles, including 98 solo stops and 28 assists, with 12 passes defended, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, two interceptions and two sacks.

In 2019, Carrie registered 52 total tackles, including 40 solo stops, 12 assists and one sack with four passes defended and one interception while switching between safety and cornerback to cover for injured teammates.

Harris, Kush and Taylor were unrestricted free agent signings of the Browns in 2019.

Harris made six starts in 15 games with 15 catches for 149 yards and three touchdowns. Kush started seven games and played in all 16 for the Browns in 2019, while Taylor saw action in 15 contests with eight special teams tackles to his credit.
