CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Browns have waived wide receiver Terrelle Pryor on Thursday.

Officials with the Browns confirm the former Ohio State quarterback was waived.

The standout Buckeye was claimed off waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals on June 22, and immediately the Browns announced the 6-4, 223-pound athlete would compete for a roster spot at wide receiver, not quarterback.

Pryor made the initial 53-man roster announced after the preseason.

Breaking into the league as a quarterback, Pryor has played in 15 career NFL games throwing for 1,953 yards, 9 TDs and 12 INTs while rushing for 627 yards and 3 TDs.

He didn’t take a snap last season as he served as the backup to Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson.
