Reports: Connor Shaw cut by Browns

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, SC (TheBigSpur.com) - The Cleveland Browns cut former South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw.

Shaw told TheBigSpur.com that he will be on the Cleveland Browns practice squad unless another team claims him.

This is a big first step and today's cut is definitely not the end of the line for the all-time winningest quarterback in South Carolina history.

With the way the game is played- mobility, grit and Shaw's skill set is something that is needed in the NFL. That's why Johnny Manziel was a first-round draft pick, along with RGIII, etc.

He performed quite well during the preseason and guys like him don't let the first set-back keep them down.

Shaw was a Gamecock standout who lead the team as a starter, earning a perfect 17-0 record at home.

He completed 63.4 percent of his passes (180-for-284) in 2013 for 2,447 yards with 24 touchdowns and just one interception during his senior season.

He was a finalist for the Unitas Award and a semifinalist for the Davey O'Brien Award.
