The Cleveland Browns are cutting one of their picks from the 2019 NFL Draft, according to a new report.

Cleveland has released safety Sheldrick Redwine, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Browns selected Redwine in the fourth round out of Miami (Fla.) two years ago.

Redwine would play in 27 games over two years in Cleveland, making eight starts. Overall, he recorded 69 total tackles, three passes defensed, one interception and one-half sack.

Redwine also started in the Browns' AFC Wild Card Game victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers last season, making three tackles and intercepting Ben Roethlisberger.

NFL insider Josina Anderson said this afternoon that Redwine could be a practice squad option for the Browns if he passes through waivers. Teams must cut down to 53 players by 4 p.m. ET tomorrow, and can begin signing players to their practice squads after waiver claims are processed on Wednesday afternoon.

In addition to releasing Redwine, the Browns have also parted ways with quarterback Kyle Lauletta, defensive end Curtis Weaver, linebacker Tegray Scales and wide receiver JoJo Natson.
