With the beat writers touting rookie DeShone Kizer as the Week 1 starter, Cleveland’s quarterback coach, David Lee, had to jump in and slow the momentum. Lee stated that Kizer was currently not ready to play but could become so after a full training camp. Lee said, "He's not ready to play but he's climbing on it, making progress … He's gotten better every day." Most read this quote as negative. I disagree. This looks to be a coach saying that, if the rookie works hard, he could be the starter on opening day. The beat reporters have reported that Kizer and Cody Kessler are working with the first-team offense while Brock Osweiler works with the backups. Last week, beat writer Nate Ulrich tweeted that Kessler is struggling with his minicamp passes getting batted down at the line of scrimmage. Kizer looks to start for the Browns early in the season.
