Former Monmouth College standout quarterback Alex Tanney will be looking for his next NFL opportunity. The Lexington High School all-stater was released by the Cleveland Browns on Monday, a move announced on the Browns' website.

"It's a part of the profession," Tanney said on his Twitter account. "Really enjoyed my time in Cleveland. The journey will continue."

Tanney, who has held passing camps in the Quad-Cities with his father, also spent a part of the 2013 season as a backup with the Dallas Cowboys.
