Former BYU wideout Jordan Leslie was elevated to the Cleveland Browns 53-man roster Friday afternoon.

Despite a stellar preseason, Leslie was cut from the Browns’ roster before the season started. With injuries at wideout, the Browns added Leslie to the practice roster earlier this week. Now, Leslie will get his first opportunity on a NFL active roster.

Leslie tweeted out this heartfelt message describing the hard work he has put in to get to this point.

After playing for three years at UTEP, Leslie came to BYU in 2014 as a graduate transfer. Despite dealing with a QB change and a nagging ankle injury, Leslie finished the season with 55 receptions for 779 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Leslie has been complimentary when speaking of his time of BYU, and has put in countless hours to get this spot. It is awesome to see hard work get rewarded, especially when it is a former Cougar.

Good luck to Jordan as he continues his NFL career!
