2014 Minnesota Vikings: Browns Claim WR Rodney Smith

In order to make room last night for quarterback Chandler Harnish, the Vikings waived Rodney Smith, who was subject to the waiver process and could be claimed by any team. The Browns submitted a waiver claim and were awarded Rodney Smith, meaning that the Vikings will have to look elsewhere to fill their final two practice squad spots (or one, assuming Harnish is signed to the practice squad).

The Browns waived receiver Laron Byrd to make room for Smith.

This means that the Vikings functionally swapped tall receivers with the Browns, because the Vikings recently signed Charles Johnson off of Cleveland’s practice squad.
