Also, during that time, he went into rehab, was at the center of some domestic incidents with an ex-girlfriend and is currently under a grand jury investigation in Dallas for misdemeanor assault.

The NFL is also investigating him. 

As part of the waiver, another NFL team can pick up the 23-year-old and his salary until 4 o'clock on Saturday afternoon.  If he's not claimed, he becomes a free agent.
As for the Browns the search is on for a new quarterback.
The NFL Draft happens at the end of April.
