Defensive end Courtney Brown was released Monday by the Cleveland Browns, although the move might be temporary.
Brown, the first overall choice in the 2000 draft, played five injury-plagued seasons with the Browns and never lived up to expectations. He was cut a day before he was due a $2.5 million roster bonus.
The Browns attempted to redo his contract before releasing him and will continue talks with his agent, Marvin Demoff.
"We are hoping this is a temporary situation and Courtney chooses to continue his career with the Browns," Browns general manager Phil Savage said in a statement.
