Brown added that Browns are not planning on trading for a quarterback at this point in time.

Could we in theory?” Brown said, via NFL.com. “Yes, but are we planning on it or is that the plan? No.”

Falcons

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Michigan S Jabrill Peppers is a “rare” player and that he sees him as a safety in their system.

One of the rare guys that you have to put on all three sides of tape to watch him carry the ball, but we see him as a safety for our team and how we play,” said Quinn, via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Consitution.

Quinn went on to say that they have no pinned Peppers to just one position and that he has the abilities to play both safety spots.

He’s got the size to be a strong, but I think the speed to play free,” Quinn said. “We didn’t nail him into one spot.
