This year, they traded him to Cleveland with a second-round draft pick for 2018.
Oh, let me tell you, Hue. you're gonna LOVE HIM.
Jackson conceded there's a possibility the Browns could wait until next year to find their quarterback of the future if things don't fall in their favor.
Jackson explained Tuesday morning at the AFC coaches breakfast the thinking behind why he's chose to skip them this year. But what I want to do at some point in time is put a quarterback on our football team that we all feel very comfortable with, that we feel can be everything that we want him to be and I'm not saying any of the guys can't be that yet. So, because, there are some other guys we're chasing.
Aside from, you know, the millions and millions of dollars, I'm not sure I would really want to be Brock Osweiler these days, as nobody seems to want the quarterback.
McNair acknowledged that the team may have been a little too quick to sign the quarterback away from Denver, admitting that they didn't do their due diligence on Osweiler.
Strong Storms Expected To Move Across Oklahoma City Metro Tuesday Evening
Storms are expected as far south as the Gulf Coast, but there is no organized severe weather risk for much of south Alabama. In either case you will want to be ready for rapidly changing conditions and keep an eye on what the weather is doing.
Cleveland is still searching for its franchise QB after almost two decades back in the NFL. There's the draft that's coming up. "I think we'll exhaust every opportunity as we move forward".
The Cleveland Browns are one of the few teams that had in the past expressed interest in free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Most NFL observers believe the Browns will use one of their first round picks on one of the top quarterbacks this year in Mitchell Trubisky, DeShaun Watson, Patrick Mahomes, DeShone Kizer or Davis Webb.
Jackson has not scouted Kaepernick the player since he was eligible for the draft in 2011.
The Browns have a long history of instability at the game's most important position. Jackson said it would be discussed internally if Kaepernick became a legitimate option.
How Cleveland plays the Osweiler situation could evolve over time, but Jackson's quotes do not indicate that their plans with him have significantly changed. And by the way, is it wrong that when I see the phrase "treat him like we do all of our other quarterbacks" uttered by a Browns employee, all I can picture is the shackled string of new inmates being escorted into Shawshank prison, except they're wearing Browns jerseys that say KESSLER, HOGAN, and OSWEILER on the back? The 2015 first-round draft pick played center previous year until the coaching staff moved him to right tackle for the season finale.
