Jerry Rice Jr. tries out with Cleveland Browns

Whether it’s Jerry Rice Jr. or Terrelle Pryor, the Cleveland Browns are willing to explore all options at wide receiver.

Pro Football Talk reports that the Browns gave Rice a tryout. Rice is the son of Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice, who is considered by many to be the greatest football player of all time.

Rice is an undrafted free agent who has never played in an NFL game. He spent time in the rookie camps with the Ravens and 49ers in 2014, and he signed with Washington last year before being let go.

Browns reporter Mary Kay Cabot says that the Browns do not have plans to sign Rice despite working him out. Instead, she says he is likely to sign with the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes.

As a college player, Rice Jr. registered nine catches for 69 yards in two seasons at UCLA from 2011-2012. He then transferred to UNLV, where he recorded 11 catches for 86 yards and a touchdown in 2013.

When Rice was working out with the Ravens last year, John Harbaugh was very complimentary of him, saying that while he did not get his father’s size, he certainly has his dad’s route running and understanding of the West Coast offense.
