The Browns were awarded wide receiver Rodney Smith off waivers from the Minnesota Vikings, the team announced Friday.

The Browns also waived wide receiver LaRon Byrd.

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Smith appeared in the 2014 season opener. He was inactive the past three games.

Last year, Smith signed with the Vikings as an undrafted rookie from Florida State. He spent the first five weeks on the Vikings’ practice squad before being elevated to the active roster. He appeared in four games and was in active for seven.

Smith has appeared in five NFL regular-season games. He has yet to tally a catch.

A Miami native, Smith started 34 of 48 career games at Florida State and compiled 106 receptions for 1,540 yards and 10 touchdowns.
