Brock Osweiler went from the Cleveland Browns’ starting quarterback to a potential trade target in the span of just a few days.

There were a handful of Cleveland Browns fans who had been pulling for Brock Osweiler to start since he arrived in March, and he was given a fair chance.

Unfortunately for the veteran, he didn’t do so well.

Osweiler played like the player fans saw last year in Houston, which is what we should have expected all along. And now that DeShone Kizer has surpassed him on the depth chart, Osweiler may be on the move once again.

Injuries and poor play cause teams to get desperate when it comes to quarterbacks, meaning a team like the Indianapolis Colts could be looking to acquire Osweiler in a trade while Andrew Luck remains off the field.

The key in any trade would be the Browns taking on a large portion of Osweiler’s salary, but just because a trade makes sense doesn’t mean one will happen. Hue Jackson may push to keep the veteran here to help the younger quarterbacks, while also having him as insurance in case of any injuries.

The NFL season begins in less than two weeks and a lot of players are going to be cut and in search of new teams, so perhaps Osweiler joins that bunch.

We take a look at that and more in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
