Where are they now?

Following the league-wide cutdown to 53-man rosters and the formation of 10-man practice squads, certain obsessive fans may be interested to see which former Browns are still employed and where. I found 44 ex-Browns listed on various other teams' rosters.

LB Jason Trusnik -- Dolphins
WR Brian Tyms -- Patriots
CB Leon McFadden -- Jets
WR David Nelson -- Jets
QB Jason Campbell -- Bengals
TE Alex Smith -- Bengals
QB Bruce Gradkowski -- Steelers
WR Lance Moore -- Steelers
K Shaun Suisham -- Steelers
S Mike Adams -- Colts
LB D'Qwell Jackson -- Colts
RB Trent Richardson -- Colts
LB Quentin Groves -- Titans
LB/DE Kamerion Wimbley -- Titans
SS T.J. Ward -- Broncos
WR Jordan Norwood -- Broncos IR
LB James-Michael Johnson -- Chiefs
LB Kaluka Maiava -- Raiders
FS Usama Young -- Raiders
DB Larry Asante -- Raiders IR
QB Brandon Weeden -- Cowboys
RB Peyton Hillis -- Giants
LB Emmanuel Acho -- Eagles PS
DE Clifton Geathers -- Washington
G Shawn Lauvao -- Washington
QB Colt McCoy -- Washington
S Don Carey -- Lions
FB Jed Collins -- Lions
DT C.J. Mosley -- Lions
C Garth Gerhart -- Packers PS
TE MarQueis Gray -- Vikings
QB Derek Anderson -- Panthers
RB Fozzy Whittaker -- Panthers
QB Luke McCown -- Saints
TE Benjamin Watson -- Saints
CB Trevin Wade -- Saints PS
OL Oniel Cousins -- Buccaneers
OL Garrett Gilkey -- Buccaneers
RB Bobby Rainey -- Buccaneers
LB Brandon Magee -- Buccaneers PS
DE Frostee Rucker -- Cardinals
P Dave Zastudil -- Cardinals
K Phil Dawson -- 49ers
DB Josh Aubrey -- Seahawks PS.

These folks and those still with Cleveland give us some data about the staying power (or lack thereof) from the Browns' recent drafts:

2014 (Farmer) -- 6 of 6 still in the NFL
2013 (Banner/Lombardi) -- 4 of 5 (80%)
2012 (Holmgren/Heckert) -- 9 of 11 (82%)
2011 (Holmgren/Heckert) -- 4 of 8 (50%)
2010 (Holmgren/Heckert/Mangini) -- 6 of 8 (75%)
2009 (Mangini/Kokinis) -- 3 of 8 (38%)
2008 (Savage) -- 1 of 5 (20%)
2007 (Savage) -- 1 of 7 (14%)
2006 (Savage) -- 2 of 10 (20%).
