CLEVELAND (AP) — A person familiar with the decisions says the Cleveland Browns have waived backup quarterback Seneca Wallace and tight end Evan Moore.
Wallace’s release means the Browns may go with former starter Colt McCoy as the No. 2 quarterback behind rookie Brandon Weeden.
Wallace and Moore were informed of the moves earlier Friday said the person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Browns have not yet announced their roster cuts.
The team must get down to the NFL’s mandatory 53-man limit by 9 p.m.
Wallace spent two seasons with the Browns, who acquired him in a 2011 trade from Seattle The 31-year-old started seven games for Cleveland.
Moore caught 62 passes in three seasons for Cleveland.
Wallace’s release was first reported by ESPN.com.
