Browns head coach Hue Jackson said the goal is to find the long-term answer at the quarterback position this offseason. The team already let Josh McCown walk in free agency opening up some cap room, but the team is hurting at the position. They have Robert Griffin III and Cody Kessler on their roster, but Jackson is looking to find his long term answer soon.
“We hope to,” Jackson told Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com. “We go into it looking to solve that. We all know until we have our quarterback, the guy that we want on our team [long-term], it’s hard to move forward. Now, that said, we’re not sure that guy is not on our team yet, I’m not trying to discount the guys that are on the team. You’re just always looking to improve everywhere that you can. We’re going to search high and low.”
Could that long term answer be Tyrod Taylor of the Buffalo Bills? Think about this the Browns give the Bills a second round pick to acquire Tyrod and then the Browns can restructure his deal before the contract deadline on March 11th. I think the Browns would be smart to make the move. That way they can focus on the 1st and 12th pick in the draft to get the two best players on their board. Imagine if the Browns walk away with Myles Garrett, Jabrill Peppers/Mike Williams and Tyrod Taylor?
