How now, Browns?
Posted Mar. 11 at 06:01 AM
The Browns have lost out on Robert Griffin III, either unwilling or unable to outbid Washington, depending on who you ask. So now what will they do to upgrade their quarterback situation?
Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer lays out Plan B in this article. For the most part the options seem relatively unappealing, which pretty much describes life as a Browns fan for the last couple of decades or more.
Most likely, Cleveland will go hard after Matt Flynn, who at least represents the hope of having a franchise quarterback to develop. If and when that fails, they could pursue Kevin Kolb, who would be kicked free from Arizona if the Cardinals sign Manning, or attempt to draft Ryan Tannehill, the consensus 3rd-best quarterback in the draft. They'll be competing with the Dolphins for those players (if Arizona signs Manning), and probably another team (Seattle?) or two.
Why does it seem likely that Arizona signs Manning, Miami and Seattle get Flynn and Tannehill, and Cleveland ends up settling for a quarterback another team parts ways with, like Kolb? Because that's how things have gone for the Browns lately.
Washington paid a steep price for Robert Griffin III, but given the options one that card is removed from the deck, it looks like a better day to be a fan of Washington than Cleveland.
