2016 Cleveland Browns roster analysis: Quarterbacks
The Cleveland Browns had a rough time winning in 2016, which was partially due to the play of those who lined up at quarterback.
The quarterback position has been a major thorn in the side of the Cleveland Browns since 1999, as the franchise hasn’t been able to get “the guy” at quarterback to lead the team for the sustainable future.
In the 2017 offseason, the front office needs to explore every option to find the guy that can become the franchise quarterback whether that is through trade, free agency or the draft. The organization is desperate for a turnaround following their worst season ever.
On the roster, the Browns have an injury prone Robert Griffin III who is trying to reinvent himself as a quarterback, veteran mentor Josh McCown, and youngsters Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan.
The Browns entered the season with Robert Griffin III as their starter and intended to have him start the entire season. However, all were affected by injury as three of the four started games this season. This derailed the offense and the team could not gain any long-term consistency at the position.
Excluding the legendary Charlie Whitehurst, here is a look at how each quarterback fared in 2016. Check back for the rest of the offensive positional breakdowns in the coming days.
