Cleveland Browns Sign WR Tori Gurley


The Cleveland Browns opened up a roster spot on Wednesday when they released back up quarterback Thaddeus Lewis. With the available spot, Cleveland has gone out and added journeyman wide receiver Tori Gurley, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

It is hard to call a guy that entered the league in 2011 a journeyman, but when you look at where Gurley has been during his time in the league there is no better term.

Gurley entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of the University of South Carolina when he signed with the Green Bay Packers.

After spending the season on Green Bay’s practice squad, Gurley began his tour of the league. Last season, he was on the practice squad of the Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Diego Chargers. He signed with the Baltimore Ravens this offseason, but was released earlier this month. Now, he lands in Cleveland.

Seven teams in two years is pretty impressive, but it does go to show that his 6-4, 230-pound frame and skill set is intriguing to teams around the league.

Gurley is working hard to stick, so hopefully he can get a chance in Cleveland.
