Browns Waive QB Connor Shaw

Browns QB Connor Shaw announced that he’s been placed on waivers Thursday, via his Twitter account.

The Browns have several quarterbacks on their roster including Robert Griffin III, Josh McCown, rookie Cody Kessler and Austin Davis, so it was unlikely they would carry five quarterbacks into training camp.

Shaw, 24, wound up signing on with the Browns as an undrafted out of South Carolina last year. He is in the final year of his three-year, $1.53 million rookie contract, which includes a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season.

Unfortunately, Shaw’s 2015 season came to an end with him being placed on season-ending injured reserve after he broke the thumb on his throwing hand during the preseason.

In 2014, Shaw wound up appearing in one game and completing 14 of 28 attempts for 177 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.
