Browns executive VP Sashi Brown said during an appearance on WKNR 850 AM that he does not see them signing another quarterback.
“That would surprise me,” Brown said. “I’ll never say never, and we’re always out there looking for what’s available to us. But very few transactions happen around the league, maybe one or two a year that would affect the quarterback position, particularly a starting-caliber quarterback. So I would anticipate and feel really comfortable about the four guys we have going into the season.”
Brown mentioned during a separate interview that there will be an open competition this summer.
“I think it’s going to be an open competition,” Brown said Thursday on ESPN’s “Mike and Mike” show. “Hue (Jackson) and (quarterbacks coach David Lee) will decide ultimately who our starter will be, but we’re excited about all three of those guys, and DeShone coming into that room to give us a fourth opportunity for a guy who may become our starter. But I think the spring and certainly training camp will help us iron that out.”
- Josh Weinfuss writes that sixth-round CB Rudy Ford will get an opportunity to compete with Justin Bethel and Brandon Williams for a starting cornerback job.
- Weinfuss points out that Ford had long-term experience as a defensive back, which is something that Bethel and Williams can’t say.
- Even so, Weinfuss still considers the Cardinals’ cornerback position to be a “significant concern” for them.
- The Kansas City Chiefs announced that they’ve signed fourth-round WR Jehu Chesson, fifth-round LB Ukeme Eligwe, and sixth-round DB Leon McQuay to four-year deals on Saturday.
