BEREA, Ohio -- Former Pro Bowl wide receiver Roy Green and veteran tackle Ken Reeves were released Tuesday as the Cleveland Browns reduced their roster to 60.
The Browns only needed two moves to get down to the league-mandated roster of 60 because of cuts made earlier in the week.
Green came to Cleveland in a June trade with the Phoenix Cardinals, but became expendable by the emergence of rookie speedster Michael Jackson and the Monday signing of Reggie Langhorne, who ended a 37-day holdout.
Green, a 13-year veteran from Henderson State, is 19th on the NFL's all-time reception list with 522 catches for 8,496 yards and 22 touchdowns. He made the Pro Bowl following the 1983 and 1984 seasons after leading the Cardinals with 78 catches each year.
Green began his career as a defensive back and became the first player to catch a touchdown pass and intercept a pass in the same game since Washington's Eddie Sutton in 1957 during the 1981 season.
Reeves was acquired by the Browns prior to 1990 season in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles. The seven-year veteran from Texas A&M did not start a game last year for Cleveland, but appeared in all 16 games as a member of the point after and field goal units.
The Browns earlier moves included the release of tight end Charles Arbuckle, kicker Ken Edelman, linebacker Dwayne Fontenette, defensive lineman John Hines, offensive tackle Pete Lucas, offensive guard Ben Mitchell and safety Charlie Oliver.
