The Cleveland Browns once again face a dilemma at the quarterback position, after Jason Campbell went down on Sunday making Brandon Weeden the only healthy quarterback on the roster.
So now it seems, the Browns will be in the market for a quarterback this week to back up Brandon Weeden, or as most of you are wishing, take over for Brandon Weeden while Jason Campbell is out with a concussion.
Either way, the Browns are gonna have to look at adding a player from another NFL team’s practice squad; or a free agent who is without a team so far this season.
When asked about the situation shortly after Sunday’s game, coach Rob Chudzinski had this to say. ”We’ll talk about that (Monday),” Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said after Sunday’s loss about the possibility of adding a quarterback. “We’ll evaluate and see where Jason is, but that’s a possibility.”
The Browns did try to sign Green Bay Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien off their practice squad four weeks ago, but the Packers matched the offer from the Browns’ and Tolzien decided to stay in Green Bay. Since then, the Browns have stand pat and went forward with what they had on the roster. After Jason Campbell going down today, they have to seek help elsewhere.
