The NFL Network’s Adam Caplan was the first to report that the Cleveland Browns are parting ways with FS Eric Haag, a seventh round draft pick in 2011-
Browns to waive FS Eric Hagg today, per source.

Last season Haag started four games for the Browns. Haag (6’1″) was the tallest defensive back on the roster. Converted cornerbacks Tashaun Gipson and Johnson Bademosi have reportedly been getting reps at FS alongside T.J. Ward. The Browns are astonishingly thin at safety at the moment. Recently drafted Jamoris Slaughter, UDFA Kent Richardson and Ward are the only ‘natural’ safeties on the roster.
The Browns are expected to announce the signing of RB Brandon Jackson to take the roster spot of Eric Haag.
