The injury to Andrew Luck opened up the possibility of a team in need of an experienced quarterback, but even the Indianapolis Colts weren’t desperate enough to pay several million dollars for a few weeks of Osweiler.
Browns fans may be frustrated that the team is paying him $16 million while also deeming Joe Haden to be too expensive, but both cuts still make sense from a talent perspective.
And when dealing with professional sports franchises, the money amounts are always going to be absurd, so it is just something to get used to.
