Having already sent DeShone Kizer to Green Bay for defensive back Damarious Randall and Cody Kessler to Jacksonville for a conditional seventh-rounder, the Browns have now cleared the decks from previous year, which seems reasonable.
Hogan, a four-year starter at Stanford, was drafted in the fifth round in 2016 by the Kansas City Chiefs and later signed with the Browns practice squad after being released.
The NFL Network reported earlier in the week that Hogan had requested a trade. He never played for the Chiefs and after being released he signed with the Cleveland Browns on September 5, 2016.
The Browns also are expected to draft a quarterback first overall, with USC's Sam Darnold, Wyoming's Josh Allen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield the leading candidates. Additionally, he's carried the ball 18 times for 176 yards and one rushing touchdown.
This past season, Hogan won the backup job behind rookie DeShone Kizer out of training camp and after some strong performances off the bench was tabbed by head coach Hue Jackson to start Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Hogan's exit means that Dorsey has cleaned out the entire Browns quarterback room from 2017. He threw for 517 yards, four touchdowns, and five interceptions in four appearances.
