When Davone Bess seemingly went off the rails, it was an obvious next thought that he might get released by the Cleveland Browns. As the images and words got more and more troubling and after his arrest in a Florida airport, the business of the NFL faded away as concern for the man himself took precedence. Even as the Browns have maintained a compassionate public stance with regard to their seemingly troubled player, it appears the time for business has arrived for the Cleveland Browns.
BREAKING: #Browns have released WRs Davone Bess and Brian Tyms, and LB Paul Hazel.

I don’t know exactly how all the departments work in the Cleveland Browns, but I’m a little bit surprised that they tweeted “BREAKING” for news that, you know, they’re responsible for creating. “Breaking” stories is usually reserved for news that isn’t being self-reported.
The Browns also announced they’ve released receiver Brian Tyms and linebacker Paul Hazel.
