4 potential trade destinations for Brock Osweiler

4 potential trade destinations for Brock Osweiler

Coach Doug Marrone made the announcement Wednesday, a day before the exhibition and almost a week after he created a quarterback competition in Jacksonville for the first time since 2013. "We hopefully can solve our quarterback issue". What we try to do here is create the right environment for him to learn a process that's going to help him be the best quarterback that he can be. "The difference in speed and quickness and scheme from college is vast, but when you talk about a quarterback, that's even more hard because of the complexity of the position, but with that being said we have the right man for the job". "He has the talent and makeup we're looking for". The decision to go with Kizer would rest more on the fact Osweiler did not give the coach tangible production and that he would accept some of the immediate growing pains with Kizer.

"He's earned the right to play through his preparation", Jackson told reporters. Against Tampa, he displayed a better internal clock, avoiding any sacks. He'll also be the 15th opening day starter since then, but only the second rookie. Look for Brock Osweiler to be released, and Cody Kessler to operate as the Browns' No. 2 quarterback this season.

There's a long way to go before the Browns feel like Kizer is the quarterback to lead them into the future.

"I thought he did some good things".

For the preseason, Kizer is 25 of 49 for 344 yards, a TD and an INT. There was another potential interception that a Bucs defender dropped.

Kizer won't have his complete starting offensive in front of him until the opener because left guard Joel Bitonio is still out with a knee injury, but left tackle Joe Thomas is playing for the first time this preseason.

Having ideas based on feelings is a good thing. He came well prepared to play. I know the numbers weren't like I would like or he would like, but I thought he moved the team and made some plays. Kizer has outplayed Osweiler in the first two games, with the latter showing he is still incapable of making accurate throws down the field. Jackson said he had a good conversation with Osweiler. But if he struggles enough, it would not be surprising to see him pulled. He did something that I was very proud of. Awesome. Those are the things that I have to find out about him. They don't want him to get hurt because of that as well.

Following a week of debate and controversy after several Browns players chose to kneel during the national anthem, every member of the team was up and standing when the anthem was played prior to Saturday night's preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"He did not fall flat on his face, " said Jackson. "I think he has represented himself well". Corey Coleman and Kenny Britt are two talented receivers for Kizer to throw to. Kizer started one drive from his own 1-yard line, another from his own 3, and a third from his own 9.

"I have no regrets on anything", he said. However, his numbers during the regular season were not good, and he was not one of the better QBs in the National Football League, losing his starting job there despite helping the Texans make it to the postseason.
