Nate Burleson knew that he was close to losing his job leading into the final preseason game. The veteran wide receiver had one catch for 27-yards on Thursday night to close out his short-lived tenure with the Cleveland Browns.
Burleson, who elected to sign with the Browns over the Miami Dolphins this off-season, was officially released by the team this morning. Final cuts to the NFL mandated 53-man roster has to be done by 4 pm EST today.
He agreed to sign a one-year deal with the Browns several months ago.
One has to think that this could be the end of the road for Burleson’s career. He may not get another shot to play in the league again.
If this is the end of the road for him in the league, he’ll end his career with 457 receptions for 5,630 yards and 39 touchdowns in 135 games.
