Reports coming out of the Cleveland Browns front offices, have the team naming quarterback Brian Hoyer as the number one contender as the Browns starting QB in 2014. The Browns don’t like any of the quarterback prospects in the up-coming NFL draft.

The team reported to the NFL network, they plan to bring in a veteran to compete against Hoyer. The Browns aren’t making any plans at the time being to draft any of the quarterbacks this year. Apparently the team has learned a valuable lesson about drafting the wrong quarterback.

The Browns made a poor choice taking Brandon Weeden with the 22nd pick on the 2012 NFL draft, and even though it was the old front office who made this mistake, the new regime  has no plans to just settle for someone.

The Browns saw Hoyer compete well in the two games he won in 2013. He needs to come back strong from the ACL injury he suffered against the Buffalo Bills. The fans would like nothing better than to see their hometown hero succeed this season.

If Hoyer is going to be competitive, the team needs to get him a better offensive line and some more offensive weapons. Hopefully the team has their sights set on Sammy Watkins. If the Browns would draft Watkins, it would give Hoyer two big offensive weapons with Watkins and Gordon.

The Cleveland Browns have to come out and win more than 4 games in 2014. The fans are restless and the last thing they want to see is a repeat of the past 4 years. The team has not improved and they were better when they returned to the NFL than they have been as of late.

Hopefully Hoyer can get the job done.

    Okey, sounds like they have decided on a direction to go in the draft. Bring on the vetern QB.

    I still am in favor of Watkins at #4. Fix the OL too, and get a running back.

    Maybe some of this help comes through free agency aquisitions too.

      I would love to see Sammy Watkins at #4

    I think Hoyer is a better than average QB and deserves the chance to be our leader. But lets face it guys, we NEED a backup QB that is as good as Hoyer too. Look what happens when your #1 goes down, not just Browns, but Steelers, Green Bay ETC, if there is no very qualified 2nd string, no wins, no playoffs.

    I still feel deep down come draft day the Browns will make a bonehead move , it’s just the way it always been, I hope I’m dead wrong plz !!!

    well done “so far” on free agency.but one concern remains.have we left enough cap space to address offensive needs.

    • Brian

      We had around $54 million in cap space. I don’t think we have quite spent all of that on 3 signings.

  5. Fred

    Pick McCarron in the later rounds the mans a winner and ran a pro offence.

    I am all for keeping Hoyer. I think it would be good for us to keep him, draft Sammy Watkins at #4 and grab Ryan Shazier at #26. I guarantee Carlos Hyde will be there at the top of the 2nd round. The Browns have a golden opportunity here. We can beef up the offense and defense in the draft by leaps and bounds.
