After selecting four receivers in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns cut ties with a veteran.

The Browns released wideout Brian Hartline on Monday, the team announced.

The move shouldn't be a surprise. The 29-year-old receiver struggled to gain separation the past several seasons and was a below-replacement-level wideout on one of the shallowest pass-catching groups in the NFL. Hartline compiled 523 yards on 46 receptions, with two touchdowns in 12 games last season, his only year in Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact:

The Browns are making room for the four receivers they selected in the draft. They are in full rebuilding mode, so holding on to a 29-year-old receiver was not in their plans.
