The Cleveland Browns are heading into training camp this summer looking at a quarterback debate. But can their be a real winner from the candidates?
Things seemed so much simpler for the Cleveland Browns just a few months ago.
The team was going to roll into the 2017 regular season with Cody Kessler as the temporary starting quarterback.
But then Brock Osweiler happened.
A throw-in as part of a trade to acquire a second-round draft pick from the Houston Texans, Osweiler is now positioning himself to make training camp very interesting as the Browns are looking at a real competition for the starter’s role.
The Kessler bandwagon is extremely crowded right now as fans are working hard to talk themselves into Kessler being more than just Cold McCoy 2.0.
The Osweiler train is picking up steam, however, as head coach Hue Jackson keeps dropping hints that he is finding Osweiler intriguing during Organized Team Activities.
And that doesn’t take into account rookie DeShone Kizer, who should not start this fall – at least not on opening day – but will have plenty of support from people who want him named QB1 immediately.
It should be fun.

"Welcome to Tank Town, USA and the Sweet Sixteen. Jets Nation, this is going to be ugly. The 2017 Jets have a realistic chance of being worse than the 1-15 Rich Kotite atrocity of 1996, a team that actually had a lot of talent, unfortunately none of it in the head coach’s office."
"The Patriots and receiver Julian Edelman agreed to a two-year contract extension worth $11 million on Thursday, keeping the nine-year veteran — and one of Tom Brady’s all-time favorites — in town for the foreseeable future. The deal was confirmed by a league source."
"Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota will be ready for the start of training camp. The Titans have been cautious with Mariota, easing him into action with limited work during OTAs.
