Wright reached an injury settlement with the Browns on Sunday and was subsequently cut by the team, Dan Labbe of Cleveland.com report.
The 25-year-old has four seasons of pro experience on his resume, which could bode well for his chances of catching on with a new team. However, for the time being, Wright naturally doesn't hold fantasy value.
Wright suffered a bruised lung during Thursday's practice and subsequently missed Friday's scrimmage, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Wright was claimed off waivers by the Browns in March, and with the lack of depth the team has at the wide receiver position, the former Bengal has a legitimate opportunity to make the roster. He will, however, miss at least a few days, as he waits for his bruised lung to heal.
Wright was waived by the Bengals on Monday but did not fall past his old coach Hue Jackson and the Bengals. Wright compiled 106 yards on 13 receptions for the Bengals in 2016 across 13 games. He also tallied 11 tackles in his special teams' role. Wright will join a group of young receivers in Cleveland and will have an opportunity to prove himself in training camp. The team let Terrelle Pryor walk in free agency, so outside of Corey Coleman, there is room on the depth chart to earn some playing time.
Wright was waived by the Bengals on Monday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Wright caught 18 passes in 24 games played for the Bengals since entering the league as a seventh-round pick in 2014. Also capable of contributing on special teams, Wright will now look to land elsewhere this offseason.
Wright (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Wright's availability was foreshadowed by the fact the he practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. With A.J. Green still out, Wright figures to remain involved Sunday, after having logged seven catches for 65 yards over his last three games. Wright still remains behind Brandon LaFell, Tyler Boyd and TE Tyler Eifert in the Bengals' pass-catching pecking order, however.
