The Cleveland Browns have waived quarterback Connor Shaw, who signed as an undrafted free agent after a stellar career at South Carolina. Now Browns’ quarterback room is down to four.
Connor Shaw made one start over the past two seasons and has little chance to stay the team this season. “Thankful for the two years spent in CLE. Learned & grew a lot! Ready to see where God guides my family next!” Shaw announced on Twitter.
It isn’t a surprise because of the crowded nature of the quarterback position in Cleveland. With Shaw gone, the Browns have four quarterbacks on their roster: Robert Griffin III, Josh McCown, Austin Davis and rookie Cody Kessler.
Shaw, 24, spent all of the last season on injured reserve with a broken thumb. However, due to the injuries to Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel, Shaw was forced to start the Browns’ last game in 2014 against Baltimore. The third-stringer showed poise while playing with a bruised kidney in a 20-10 loss to the playoff-bound Ravens. It’ll be interesting to see if he’ll be capable of landing a roster spot in what is a crowded quarterback room in Chicago.
