Browns HC Hue Jackson tells Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com that he’s not even thinking about the possibility of No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield opening the season as their starting quarterback over Tyrod Taylor.
“That’s not in my mind,” Jackson said. “What’s in my mind is Tyrod’s our starter. We have two very capable players, one in Drew Stanton, who also has a ton of experience, and we have a young, emerging quarterback that’s got a lot of work to do, and has to learn a lot. I don’t want to put a ceiling on any player, but I already know where our pecking order is. And again, I’ve said this before, I’m not going to stop him from being the best version of him, I’m not going to stop him from working extremely hard. I just want to do everything I can so when he goes out to play for the Cleveland Browns, whenever that is, he’ll know and he’ll be ready to play.”
“Andrew Luck is going to be back and better than ever, ” Pagano said. “I know it. It absolutely killed him not to be out there on the field because he’s a top competitor, great teammate, and a great player.
“Braxton came in with a good attitude this spring,” Perry said, via John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. “I think he realizes and understands what we’re asking him to do. I think it was a very difficult transition doing what he did, coming from college and trying to jump into the NFL and get into the wide receiver position.
“I think he’s taken a great approach this offseason. He’s been able to be competitive on a daily basis, and you can see his skill set really improving day to day, and I’m hoping that just continues because if it does, then he’s on the right path.”
