Browns 2016 free agency roundup: Day 1

The Browns were quiet Wednesday as the new league year kicked off at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Two of the team's unrestricted free agents -- wide receiver Travis Benjamin and center Alex Mack -- officially agreed to terms on deals with new teams.

Benjamin, who agreed to terms with the San Diego Chargers, played four seasons with the Browns. The 2012 fourth-round pick set a number of career bests in 2015, finishing with 68 receptions for 966 yards and five touchdowns to go along with 324 punt return yards and a touchdown.

Mack, who agreed to terms with the Atlanta Falcons, made three Pro Bowls and started 101 games during his seven seasons with the Browns. A first-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, Mack was the team's Ed Block Courage Award recipient after bouncing back from a serious leg injury that kept him off the field for most of the 2014 season.

The Browns entered the new league year with six unrestricted free agents: Mack, Benjamin, right tackle Mitchell Schwartz, safety Tashaun Gipson, linebacker Craig Robertson and defensive back Johnson Bademosi. Linebacker Tank Carder re-signed with the Browns on Monday.
