Among the notable players on this year's roster were Matt Stover (kicker) and Vinny Testaverde (QB).

ScheduleEdit

The Browns' record was 4–5 on November 6, the day that owner Art Modell announced the team would be moving to Baltimore for the 1996 season. Cleveland ended the season losing six of their final seven games.

They did, however, win their final home game on December 17th, against long-time rival Cincinnati.

The 1995 season is, as of 2011, the last season in which the Browns didn't sell out some of their home games, thus being blacked out.

Relocation to BaltimoreEdit

Modell announced on November 6, 1995, that he had signed a deal to relocate the Browns to Baltimore in 1996—a move which would return the NFL to Baltimore for the first time since the Colts relocated to Indianapolis after the 1983 season. The very next day, on November 7, 1995, Cleveland voters overwhelmingly approved an issue that had been placed on the ballot at Modell's request, before he made his decision to move the franchise, which provided $175 million in tax dollars to refurbish the outmoded and declining Cleveland Municipal Stadium. Modell's plan was later scrapped and taxpayers ultimately paid close to $300 million to demolish the old stadium and construct a new stadium for the Browns on the site of Municipal Stadium.
