Cleveland Browns: The quarterback situation entering 2018
Quarterback is the most invaluable position in all of sports. The Cleveland Browns have attempted to rehabilitate their problems at this position, but now it’s time to perform surgery to resolve the issue.
The Cleveland Browns have started 28 quarterbacks since their return in 1999. It’s been a long road for Browns fans and starting the 2017 NFL season with an 0-10 record is less than ideal.
Hue Jackson has struggled building successful gameplans for his quarterbacks in his first two seasons in Cleveland. Despite not having the best talent in the quarterback room, 1-25 is unacceptable for any head coach.
Rookie DeShone Kizer has certainly had his fair share of poor play though he has shown some bright spots. A lack of weapons surrounding him makes it difficult to evaluate the 21-year-old quarterback, but he was a project since draft day. And the Browns knew this. Are Kizer, Cody Kessler or Kevin Hogan the future heading into 2018?
Absolutely not and the Browns cannot bank on the idea that one of them will miraculously turn into an All-Pro. Year three of their rebuild is the season to begin winning games and fans will receive a better product and idea of the future of the franchise.
But it starts at the quarterback position and with a number of high draft picks and cap space, Cleveland can go several routes to get their franchise quarterback.
