No. 18 – Bruce Gradkowski
Bruce Gradkowski is another one-game wonder for the Browns, but unfortunately with a similar outcome as the rest. While Gradkowski’s one start with the Browns was brutal, his nine-year career and the long list of awful Browns quarterbacks keeps him out of the basement.
Gradkowski played for five teams and had a final record of 6-14. In his one start with the Browns, he had a 33 percent completion rate with zero touchdowns and three interceptions.
No. 17– Seneca Wallace
Seneca Wallace was a mobile quarterback who made a lot of big plays in his career despite his 6-16 overall record. After five years with the Seattle Seahawks, Wallace was traded to Cleveland for a seventh-round pick and earned the right to start after playing well a few series when a starter was injured.
Wallace was only 1-7 as a starter in Cleveland but his ability to run always kept things interesting. In two seasons with the Browns Wallace had a completion percentage of 60 with six touchdowns and four interceptions.
No. 16 – Jason Campbell
We now start getting to quarterbacks who had some limited success in the NFL. Jason Campbell started 16 games in back-to-back seasons for the Washington Redskins, but after limited success eventually ended up in Cleveland to end his career.
In Campbell’s first six years in the league, he was 31-39 and led the Redskins to an 8-8 record in 2008. Overall success may have some believing Campbell should be higher on this list, but his 1-7 record in one season with the Browns was beyond disappointing in 2013. Campbell was another quarterback that would never see the field again after playing with the Browns.
No. 15 – Robert Griffin III
After a breakout rookie year, Robert Griffin III struggled to replicate that success. After the Washington Redskins gave up and cut Griffin, the Browns signed him to a two-year contract. Browns’ fans knew they were getting an injury-prone, running quarterback, but were still excited to have a big name in the locker room.
The RGIII experiment went south quickly and he only started in five games, winning just one of those games. Griffin averaged under 200 yards per game passing and threw just two touchdowns and three interceptions. Griffin has since found a role as the backup for the Baltimore Ravens.
