The Cleveland Browns are getting set to start a new chapter… again. This comes just one year after the team started a new chapter with head coach Rob Chudzinski. But after finishing the 2013 season at 4-12, the Browns have once again moved on. Now it’s a question of who the team will bring in at QB.
Brian Hoyer is still on the mend after tearing his ACL last fall and most analysts are expecting Cleveland to look to the draft for help at QB. The Browns sit at the No. 4 spot, which you would think gives them a great shot at selecting a franchise QB. The man the Browns supposedly want to save their franchise? Johnny Manziel.
It depends on what article you’re looking at, but some reports have the Browns being willing to trade up to get John Football. It’s no doubt a move that could pay off big time.
One thing Manziel might like about the Browns, is the fact that they have one of the league’s best receivers on their roster. That would be one of 2013’s breakout stars, Josh Gordon.
Here’s what Gordon told NFL.com about the possibility of Manziel coming to Cleveland:
“For the media market and a city like Cleveland, which is real small, I think it would be huge to have him. Great for the city, and the environment, but I’m not really sure who they want. There’s a lot of great talent out there. There’s a couple guys on that list.”
As you can see, Gordon was pretty vague with his answer. He acknowledged something that we all have — Johnny Football would be great for the struggling franchise that is the Browns and for the city of Cleveland. But as much as he would be good for business, there are still no guarantees that he’s going to be great on Sundays.
However, if he gets a top-tier receiver like Gordon to throw to, I think he’ll do just fine.
