Jeff Walcoff, Staff Writer


Browns fullback Terrelle Smith has been released, the team announced Wednesday.

Smith, slated to enter his seventh NFL season this fall, appeared in all 48 games during three seasons as a Brown with 32 starts. While primarily a blocking back during that time, he rushed 18 times for 32 yards and caught 27 passes for 111 yards with 1 touchdown.

Smith blocked for 1,000-yard rushers during each of his four seasons as a New Orleans Saint prior to coming to Cleveland and blocked for one as a member of the Browns (Reuben Droughns, 2005). He joined the Saints as a fourth-round draft pick in 2000. In his career, he has appeared in 107 games with 68 starts.

The lone remaining fullback on the Browns' roster is Lawrence Vickers, a sixth-round pick out of Colorado in 2006.
