Cleveland Browns to waive Safety Eric Haag

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-

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.

    This makes me feel morose. No wait… not morose, that’s the wrong word. What’s the right word? Oh right… apathetic.

    I’m leaning towards perfunctory, myself.

    My feeling has been that Gipson will probably win that job. He’s only 5′ 11″ but a fairly stout 205lbs. I think he’ll be ok physically. It’s also still possible they go after somebody when the cap cuts commence.

    Apathy means not feeling anything so you can’t really feel apathetic can you?

  • Vindictive_Pat

    Apathy means feeling no emotion, true. I guess I should have taken out the word “feel” there.

    I want Kerry Rhodes to win that job.
