The first domino falls

As McCown signs, the inevitable question becomes: What next?

IMPORTANT NOTE: Rumor Central discusses rumors which are prevalent in the mainstream media. It is NOT an endorsement of these rumors or any indication that we believe they have any merit. For a dose of reality, i.e., the real scoop, we suggest that you CLICK HERE. Or CLICK HERE. Or CLICK HERE. Thank you. Now, on with the silliness...

The first domino of the free agency season has fallen, and free agency doesn’t officially start for another week and a half.

The Browns signing of Josh McCown didn’t exactly draw rave reviews from across the NFL. Sports Illustrated gave the deal a “C-”, saying that the Browns have simply “moved from one stopgap solution at quarterback to another”. The Big Lead simply called McCown’s decision between the Bill and the Browns “Gross”, pausing only to avoid pondering what the “loser” in such a decision might get.

The reaction didn’t get better as McCown’s contract numbers were simultaneously leaked to various national reporters Saturday afternoon:

Such analyses are kind compared to the reaction we saw last night on Twitter (although we did get a number defending the move).

Alright, so people aren’t wowed by the move. As if many would be wowed by anything the PR-disaster Browns do at this point until they win on the field… The questions remains: What does it mean for the next step? Theories abound:

THEORY 1: That’s it for Brian Hoyer.

Admittedly, this was found in these pages right after the deal was signed, but we aren’t the only ones. The “Hoyer is gone” theory has a lot of weight behind it. McCown fills the “journeyman veteran mentor” role that Hoyer would have filled, and won’t agitate to start as aggressively should Manziel or another quarterback ascend to the starting slot. Alex Marvez thinks that the Houston Texans now make sense:

THEORY 2: The Browns will make another move at quarterback.

Advanced generally without any evidence, this theory seems more grounded in the notion that (1) McCown must be mentoring someone other than Johnny Manziel, and (2) that the Browns can’t be done, can they? Leading this charge is Terry Pluto, who is relying almost entirely on gut feel to argue that the Browns simply can’t be done.

Truth be told, the Browns will be likely to consider all options to upgrade this position on their roster, and will be looking at costs. Would they like to grab Marcus Mariota? Sure! What’s the cost? Ooo… too pricey. Mike Glennon? Maybe… can he be had for a fifth-rounder? No? Sorry. While, in my opinion, the Browns aren’t going to shut down surveying the field for another quarterback, another move would be dependent on the opportunity.

The Browns don’t completely control their own destiny at quarterback, as they’re dependent on other teams setting prices for draft slots and existing players. The only way they can take control of their own destiny is by doing something borderline crazy, say, grabbing Brett Hundley with pick #19, and that’s surely not an answer for the 2015 season. Which leads us to…

THEORY 3: The McCown signing means the Browns are likely done this year.

This is the favorite for Cleveland newcomer Jeremy Fowler, who seems like a very competent writer, but simply not one who has witnessed professional football carnage close up at this severity and scale before. Fortunately, he has ESPN fellow reporter Pat McManamon to turn to for details about what covering the Browns means for one’s soul.

Fowler writes: "Another move to come? Doubtful: The Browns’ quarterback picture has come into focus. They’ll have McCown, Manziel, Connor Shaw and possibly a draft pick (second round or beyond) for training camp.

It’s early, but after asking around, the prospect of trading up for Marcus Mariota seems unlikely at best. Giving up several top picks is a lot to ask for a self-proclaimed build-through-the-draft team. "

Fowler here is applying what’s known as “logic” to the Browns. Always a dangerous game. But if that means the end of weird Sam Bradford machinations (Hey! Wasn’t he the Browns top option?), then so be it.
