Browns release Fraley

FraleyFraleyThe Cleveland Browns released veteran offensive lineman Hank Fraley Wednesday, the team announced.

Fraley, who will become an unrestricted free agent, spent four seasons playing center and guard with the Browns and started 52 games. He had four starts in 2009 and appeared in 15 games.

Cleveland drafted center Alex Mack in the first round last year. That prompted the Browns to make the move, as they continue to remake their roster under new president Mike Holmgren and general manager Tom Heckert.
