Yesterday, Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren and general manager Tom Heckert held a press conference to outline the teams plan for the upcoming offseason. The hot topic seemed to be the quarterback position where Holmgren was unwilling to commit to Colt McCoy as the teams longterm solution at the position.
That’s opened the door for plenty of speculation as to what the Browns may be considering.
Ridenour points out that drafting a player like Robert Griffin III may not be the best idea as he doesn’t fit the teams offensive system as much as Matt Flynn would.
Keep in mind that has shown up big in his only two starts in the NFL and holds the Packers single game record for most passing touchdown in a game which came against a team that was vying for a better playoff spot.
Still Flynn will be considerable more costly than draft RGIII would be and there’s always the risk that he may not perform as well as he did in Green Bay but it’s hard to not see him as an upgrade for the Browns.
We have Flynn listed as the #25 best available free agent in our Top 50 NFL Free Agents list.
