21. Kevin Hogan
Kevin Hogan was a fifth-round pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2016 draft, but was later cut, then claimed by the Browns. He played in relief on multiple occasions for both Cody Kessler and Deshone Kizer in 2016 and 2017, but only started one game for the Browns.
That start came against the Houston Texans in week six of the 2017 season. He threw three interceptions, all in the first half, adding no touchdowns and was sacked four times. Hogan’s numbers in relief of starters spares him a few notches on this list. He finished his time as a Brown with four touchdowns and five picks while completing 61 percent of his passes.
After the addition of Tyrod Taylor after the 2017 season, Hogan requested a trade and was granted his request as he was shipped off to Washington. He was later cut and now finds himself as the backup to Case Keenum in Denver.
20. Tyrod Taylor
This past offseason, new GM John Dorsey traded a third-round pick to the Buffalo Bills for Tyrod Taylor in hopes that they would be able to bridge for a year and spare their incoming rookie quarterback from playing right away; that plan did not work out quite as planned.
Taylor, who was named a team captain and was given all of the first-team reps during training camp, found himself on the bench by week four. In his three games as starting quarterback, Taylor finished with a record or 1-1-1, but in all reality, Baker Mayfield saved his start in week three as Tyrod exited with a 14-point deficit. Tyrod will not be brought back in the 2019 season and will end his time with the Browns completing 49 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
19. Jake Delhomme
The 35-year-old quarterback came to the Browns in 2010 after a long tenure with the Carolina Panthers that included one Super Bowl appearance. During his time as Cleveland’s bridge quarterback, he started four games and finished 2-2 as the starting signal caller. During that time he threw two touchdowns and seven interceptions while completing 62 percent of his passes. This left him with a quarterback rating of 63.4.
The 2010 season was Jake Delhomme’s only campaign with the team, and turned out to be the last season of his career as he went to Houston the year after, but failed to make the team.
18. Thad Lewis
Lewis was brought in to close out the 2012 season after both Colt McCoy and Brandon Weeden were injured. He finished week 17 against Pittsburgh completing 70 percent of his passes with one touchdown and one interception, with a quarterback rating of 83.3 in a 24-10 loss. If those are your only numbers as a Brown, they aren’t bad enough to put you at the bottom of the list, but they aren’t good enough to move you towards the top.
Lewis went on to start five contests for the Buffalo Bills the following season before finding himself unemployed and out of the league.
