Scout.com's Adam Caplan has informed the OBR that the Browns have released OG Joe Andruzzi, a veteran who has held down the Browns left guard spot for the past two seasons.
Andruzzi, who as signed along with RG Cosey Coleman prior to the 2005 season, is an eleven-year NFL veteran who came into the NFL as an undrafted rookie with the Packers from Southern Connecticut State. After three years with the Packers, Andruzzi moved on to New England, where he was a key member of the offensive line with several Patriots Super Bowl teams.
Andruzzi struggled much of 2006 with recurring knee problems, but managed to play much of the season. It was clear that his effectiveness was reduced by knee problems, leading the Browns to sign free agent Eric Steinbach to be their new starting left guard in 2007.
