Braxton Miller is back in Ohio.

Four days after the Philadelphia Eagles waived him, the Cleveland Browns announced they signed Miller on Wednesday. 

Miller, a former Ohio State quarterback and wide receiver, has only a short time to show he deserves a roster spot in Cleveland. In 10 days, all NFL teams have to cut their rosters to 53 players.

Miller began his NFL career with the Houston Texans as a third-round pick in 2016. Since then, he has recorded 34 receptions for 261 yards and two touchdowns. He has played in 21 NFL games with nine starts.

At Ohio State, Miller became one of the most electrifying quarterbacks in the country before transitioning to wide receiver in his final year due to an injury. He ended his Ohio State career having complete 396-of-667 passes for 5,295 yards. He had 52 passing touchdowns and 17 interceptions. Miller had 3,315 career rushing yards and 33 rushing touchdowns. He also caught 25 passes for 340 yards with three touchdowns as a fifth-year senior.
