Summary

Cleveland's acquisition of Osweiler via trade was peculiar. Houston was so ready to get his $16M 2017 salary off the books that they also sent Cleveland multiple picks in the deal. At the time, many speculated that Cleveland would trade Osweiler elsewhere or release him before he ever plays a down, but after the draft, he's still on the roster with reports indicating that he'll be given a chance to be the team's starter. The team is going nowhere regardless of whether or not Osweiler wins the job, and he hasn't shown the ability or promise to be an NFL starter anywhere. Even if he stays on the team and wins the job out of camp, he's likely to give way to another quarterback sooner rather than later. (May 13)

Browns | Cleveland QB battle a two-man race? (Tue Jul 11, 02:46 PM) - Cleveland Browns QBs Cody Kessler and DeShone Kizer are in an apparent two-man race for the starting quarterback position, according to Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer. Kessler and Kizer split first-team repetitions throughout minicamp, with QB Brock Osweiler working with the second team. Furthermore, Cabot expects head coach Hue Jackson to name a starter shortly after the preseason begins.

Our View: No surprise here. Kessler could handle the starting job for the Browns, but he's not an exciting option or a playmaker at the position. Instead, he's more of a game manager who can work the field on short/underneath routes. Kizer could be the quarterback of the future if he develops further as a passer. The rookie from Notre Dame is big, strong and athletic. However, he does 'bird dog' his throws and stares down his targets. Plus, he struggles to make quick decisions when forced off his first read. We'll see if he's improved during training camp and the preseason.
