Browns waive QB Thaddeus Lewis

On Wednesday the Cleveland Browns waived former Duke quarterback, Thaddeus Lewis, according the ProfootballTalk.

Lewis first joined the league as an undrafted free agent for St. Louis Rams in 2010. He, however, never played a snap for the Rams. He was waived and subsequently claimed by the Browns where he was kept on the practice squad most of his time there.

After injuries to Colt McCoy and Brandon Weeden at the end of the 2012 season, Lewis was activated to the roster and had his first career start versus the Pittsburgh Steelers where he threw for a touchdown and an interception in a 24-10 loss.

What is notable about that performance is that the Steelers were ranked first in defense at the time of the game. Some team out there will get a suitable backup quarterback if they claim Lewis.
