Carl Nassib has been offering financial advice to his teammates. On Sunday Kyle Williams Jersey , he got caught in the Browns' numbers crunch.

Nassib and fellow veteran defensive lineman Jamie Meder were the two most notable players waived by Cleveland, which has overhauled its roster under general manager John Dorsey following a historic 0-16 season.

A 2016 third-round pick, Nassib had a memorable appearance on HBO's "Hard Knocks" this summer when he gave investment tips during a meeting to teammates while using some colorful language. He started 12 games and recorded three sacks for Cleveland last season, but the Browns are rebuilding and Nassib isn't part of the transformation.

Meder, too, is looking for a new team. A Cleveland-area native, Meder had been with the Browns since being signed to the practice squad. He started 16 of 43 games and made his biggest impact by blocking a field goal in the waning moment of a Christmas Eve game in 2016 against San Diego that secured the Browns' only win in the past two seasons under coach Hue Jackson.

The team also waived offensive lineman Austin Reiter, linebacker Jermaine Grace and defensive back Jeremiah McKinnon.

As expected, Dorsey was active on the waiver wire, claiming five players: defensive linemen Carl Davis (Baltimore) and Ifeadi Odenigbo (Minnesota), offensive lineman Aaron Neary (Los Angeles Rams) , defensive back Tavierre Thomas (Arizona) and linebacker Tanner Vallejo (Buffalo).

The bottom of Cleveland's roster could be in flux all season under Dorsey Authentic T.Y. Hilton Jersey , who since being hired in December has been among the league's busiest executive in free agency, draft preparation and other signings.

"We have actually turned the roster over 59 percent from last year's roster. That does not happen unless you have a plan," Dorsey said. "That plan was developed in mid-January with the input of the coaches and the personnel staff putting this thing together. Once we identified what we needed, we used whatever resources that were available.

"Of course, when you are sitting in the No. 1 waiver claim position, you always go attack the final two or three claims and see what is out there. We thought that it would be best if we picked up five players who we think could help this team. At the end of the day, I think that we are a better football team on both sides of the line of scrimmage."

The Browns will announce their practice squad on Monday.

ARIZONA CARDINALS (8-8)

OPEN CAMP: July 27, Glendale, Arizona

LAST YEAR: Cardinals dealt with myriad injuries but managed to pull out win in Seattle in finale to finish 8-8 in coach Bruce Arians’ final game. He announced retirement next day. Arians finished with franchise-record 50 wins, but his teams failed to make playoffs in last two years. QB Carson Palmer, after another season shortened by injury, also announced retirement. 8-8 record came despite loss of standout running back David Johnson when he dislocated wrist in opener. It was another standout year for Larry Fitzgerald: In 14th NFL season Vontae Davis Jersey , he finished second in league in receptions with 102. Outside linebacker Chandler Jones led NFL with 16 sacks.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: Coach Steve Wilks, QB Sam Bradford, QB Josh Rosen, QB Mike Glennon, RT Andre Smith, RG Justin Pugh, WR Brice Butler, WR Christian Kirk, CB Jamar Taylor, RB Chase Edmonds.

IMPORTANT LOSSES: Arians, Palmer, S Tyrann Mathieu Matt Calvert Jersey , WR John Brown, WR Jaron Brown, QB Drew Stanton, OT Jared Veldheer, CB Justin Bethel, OG Alex Boone, DT Frostee Rucker, ILB Karlos Dansby, DT Josh Mauro, TE Troy Niklas, OT Earl Watford.

CAMP NEEDS: With new coach and new systems on offense, defense and special teams Sonny Milano Jersey , plenty for Cardinals to work on once they don pads. While most practices will be held in air conditioned comfort of University of Phoenix Stadium, Wilks says he wants some workouts outside in sweltering Arizona summer heat. There will be several important position battles, including for No. 2 receiver spot behind Fitzgerald. There’s also intrigue at quarterback, where Rosen has drawn praise as Cardinals bring along Bradford slowly after last year’s knee injury. Rosen will try to unseat Glennon as backup. Wilks and new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy want much of offense built around dynamic Johnson, who led NFL in yards from scrimmage two seasons ago. But Johnson skipped mandatory minicamp in contract dispute. Wilks also has cut camp shorter, ending it on Aug. 13 – just after second preseason game – and moving back to practice facilities.

EXPECTATIONS: Outside of Cardinals organization, expectations aren’t high. Many early forecasts have them finishing last in the NFC West. But Wilks has impressed players with his system and he says team has cornerstones of great players – Fitzgerald, Patrick Peterson, Johnson and maybe Bradford – to build winning team. Preseason games will be particularly interesting as Rosen is likely to get extensive playing time.
