BEREA– Brock Osweiler comes to Cleveland this season after a struggling 2016 season with the Houston Texans– after all, he threw only 15 touchdown passes while throwing 16 interceptions.
While the regular season isn’t yet underway, should the Browns consider an offer for Osweiler if the right one comes along?
Yesterday, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill suffered a knee injury in a non-contact drill, and may now need surgery. As Jason McIntyre from thebigleague.com pointed out, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase praised Osweiler last season, despite his struggles in Houston:
“His biggest thing he was trying to work on was his mechanics and how to be a quarterback. He knew that he had time to do that behind Peyton [Manning]. That was one of the reasons we wanted to draft him, we knew his work ethic was off the charts. We knew he was smart. We knew he understood his role that was going to happen in the organization.”
If the Browns did decide to drop Osweiler, that would leave Cody Kessler and DeShone Kizer to battle it out for the starting QB job. With news of Tannehill’s injury, Osweiler got plenty of questions about the possibility of going to Miami today. He told cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot, that he is not worried about a possible move, however.
“I’m really not,” Osweiler told Cabot. “Those decisions are for Sashi Brown and Hue Jackson to make. Right now, all I can worry about, all I can focus on is going inside, watching the tape of the walk-through, getting focused to come out here and have a great practice.”
