P.J. Walker, who most recently worked out for the Chicago Bears this offseason, joined the Cleveland Browns' practice squad on Wednesday, August 30.
Walker has replaced former Browns quarterback Kellen Mond, who was cut by the team on Tuesday, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
"The #Browns signed QB P.J. Walker to their practice squad," Pelissero tweeted.
"QB Kellen Mond, who was initially believed to be returning to Cleveland, is now a free agent."

Walker joined the Bears' roster shortly after free agency opened in March, signing him to a two-year contract worth $4.15 million overall,
The timing and financial terms of the transaction suggested that Chicago had already determined Walker would be their backup
pitcher for third-year starting Justin Fields. Walker, on the other hand, struggled tremendously during the preseason and was outperformed by undrafted rookie Tyson Bagent.
