Brandon McDonald has been cut by the Browns, the cornerback announced on his Twitter account.
McDonald started 27 of 48 games the past three seasons. He lost his job on a few occasions, due to breakdowns in coverage and the running game, but kept regaining it. He co-led the Browns in 2008 with five interceptions.
McDonald got into hot water this summer when he made offensive remarks in a Tweet regarding the Bengals' acquisition of receiver Terrell Owens.
McDonald was a fifth-round pick in 2007.
The Browns say they won't announce their cutdown to 53 players until 6 p.m.
