Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2017 Cleveland Browns starting quarterback... Brock
The Browns took on Osweiler in
Why fans or media would be upset with the Browns spending of 16 million dollars on the previous cap space of over 100
Think of Osweiler as a lottery ticket. Here are is career numbers: 59.9 % Passing, 26 TD, 22 INT and a 77.4 QB Rating. With the Browns now stellar offensive line, he is in a much better position to succeed than in Houston last year, where it was a shotgun marriage between him and the coaching staff.
While there is still a chance the Browns flip Osweiler, the closer to the draft, the less likely this happens. The Browns could also hold onto Osweiler for the upcoming 2017 season, then attempt to trade him as his contract becomes more team friendly.
While the 2017 NFL Draft is loaded with defensive players, the quarterbacks at the top each have major question marks. The Browns will return 2016 3rd round pick Cody Kessler as well as former Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan in their quarterback room. The three former Pac-12 stars could bridge the gap behind a solid running game (4.9 yards/attempt - 2nd in NFL) and an improved defense presumably led by #1 draft pick Myles Garrett as well as resigned LB Jamie Collins under the new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.
If John Elway thought enough of Osweiler to offer him three years and nearly fifty million dollars, the Browns should be taking a long, hard look at him as well. What do they have to lose?
What do you think the end result with Osweiler and the Browns?
