CLEVELAND -- The Browns have released wide receiver Earl Bennett about a month after signing him to a free agent contract.

The team announced the move Tuesday on Twitter. No explanation was given for the release.

Cleveland signed Bennett on May 15 to help ease the blow from the potential loss of wide receiver Josh Gordon, who could be facing a potential lengthy suspension for failing a drug test.

The 27-year-old Bennett started 29 games and has 185 career receptions for 2,277 yards and 12 touchdowns during his six seasons with the Chicago Bears. He was released this past off-season in a salary cap move. He had 32 receptions for 243 yards and four touchdowns last season.
