CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have signed former Ohio State Buckeye Braxton Miller, according to the team.
The wide receiver is in his third NFL season out of OSU.
In college, Miller was the team’s starting quarterback from 2011 to 2013 before he was switched to wide receiver in 2015 after missing a season due to injury and with the emergence of J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones.
Miller threw for 5,295 yards and 52 touchdowns in his three years at quarterback and recorded 341 yards for three touchdowns in his single season at wide receiver.
Miller, a native of Springfield, Ohio, was drafted by the Houston Texans in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He was waived by the team Sept. 1, 2018.
The Philadelphia Eagles signed Miller to their practice squad just over a week later, and then signed him to a reserve/future contract in January.
Miller was waived by the Eagles on Aug. 17.
With the wide receiver quarterback positions pushing capacity, it's likely the Browns will find a new role for Miller, potentially one on special teams.
