The Cleveland Browns have terminated the contract of linebacker Kenard Lang. Lang was always known as a defensive end, but was moved to linebacker last season under new head coach Romeo Crennel in order to utilize him in Cleveland's new 3-4 defensive scheme.

"I enjoyed playing for the Cleveland Browns and for the fans throughout Northeast Ohio," Lang said.

Lang had been with the Browns for the past four seasons and was always a consistent force. He had to lose a lot of weight in switching to linebacker, and never really was able to become an effective force at the position.

"We felt in talking with Kenard and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, that this was the best move to make for him as well as the Browns," said Browns general manager Phil Savage.

The Browns also released backup cornerback Michael Lehan. He started four games for the Browns in the past three seasons and had a total of 40 tackles. He also played on special teams occasionally.
