The Cleveland Browns announced this morning a decision on defensive back Jermaine Whitehead following his post-game actions in Denver. He’s been released.
Cleveland announced on Twitter this morning that Whitehead, 26, is being waived.
The Browns announced the decision with a simple statement.
“We’ve waived S Jermaine Whitehead,” they announced.
Whitehead had tweeted several threatening and distasteful messages to reporters and fans following the 24-19 loss in Denver. The defensive back didn’t appear to be happy with some postgame criticism.

Cleveland announced on Sunday night that Whitehead’s actions were unacceptable.
“Jermaine Whitehead’s social media posts following today’s game were totally unacceptable and highly inappropriate,” a Browns spokesperson said on Sunday night. “We immediately spoke with Jermaine upon learning of these comments. The Browns in no way condone that type of language or behavior. This matter will be further addressed internally.”
Whitehead played collegiately at Auburn. He’d been with the Browns since 2018.
