CLEVELAND (AP) -The Cleveland Browns have released quarterback Derek Anderson.

Anderson made the Pro Bowl in 2007 when he threw 29 touchdown passes and led the club to a 10-6 record. But his career has been in a tailspin ever since. He lost his starting job to Brady Quinn last season, got it back when Quinn was injured but played poorly.

Anderson's release comes one day after the Browns acquired backup Seneca Wallace in a trade from Seattle.
