CLEVELAND -- The Browns have released fullback Chris Pressley just one month after signing him as a free agent.

Pressley missed all of last season with Cincinnati because of a knee injury, but the 5-foot-10, 249-pounder had been expected to fill a need on Cleveland's roster.

The Browns did not have a traditional fullback in 2013. Pressley also played for Tampa Bay.

The team released wide receivers Josh Cooper and Tori Gurley. Those moves were expected after the club signed veteran free agents Miles Austin and Earl Bennett last week -- protection in the event Pro Bowl Josh Gordon is suspended.

Cooper played in five games last season, finishing with nine receptions for 60 yards. The 5-foot-10 Cooper had a career-high five catches in the season finale against Pittsburgh.
