Analysis: Steinbach underwent an operation to fix a back disc in August and sat out his fifth season with Cleveland. He was scheduled to make $6 million in 2012. His release will give the Browns more room under the salary cap. They opened free agency about $17 million under the cap. The Browns signed the 31-year-old to a seven-year, $49.5 million contract in 2007. Steinbach proved to be money well spent, playing in 62 of 64 games before hurting his back during training camp.
