I don't know if Osweiler was cut yet. There are reports that could happen but I haven't seen that he was cut. Do you know something I don't--Fake news

Absolutely. Many things. But, possibly not in this instance.

I had heard a story that he was cut already, but perhaps it has not happened yet. I think there is a date by which it has to happen and that may not yet be here, but everything I read was that the plan was to cut him.

Whoever holds Osweiller's contract has a cap space hit of 16M for 2017, whether or not they cut him before then. When the Browns took on Osweiller's contract, the cap space hit shifted from the Texans to the Browns. That's obviously why the Texans threw in the draft picks.

My guess is the Browns try to trade him (for peanuts, if necessary). And if they can't, they cut him. They're in re-building mode. They not winning the SB in 2017. And they have cap space to burn. They basically traded 2017 cap space they weren't going to use for draft picks.

The alternative is that they actually LIKE Osweiller and think the contract is fine. That is too scary to contemplate.
