Predicting the Browns Roster Cuts After Preseason Week One (Offense)

Quarterback  View image | 1. Josh McCown I’m going to follow the mold of what Cleveland did last year, which was hand it to the veteran before giving Johnny Manziel a chance should the veteran falter.  I don’t think they think Manziel is ready yet, which was the reason for bringing McCown in in the first place. 2.

Why Connor Shaw should be the Cleveland Browns starting quarterback

While it is looking more and more like Josh McCown will be the starting quarterback for the Browns in week one, I think the Browns could be making serious mistake. I think that they should give the job to one of the young guys and see what he can do. Not the second year quarterback that they picked in the first round last season, but the one that went undrafted yet still looked more...
