The Cleveland Browns need to fill their hole at quarterback, but do they need to be reckless in doing so?
The Cleveland Browns need a quarterback, a basic fact that everyone knows.
But that doesn’t mean they need to be ridiculous about how they go about filling that particular hole on the roster.

Case in point: trading a No. 1 draft pick to the New England Patriots for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
While it seems ludicrous to trade a high pick for a player who has thrown all of 94 passes in his NFL career, that is what the Browns are rumored to be considering, according to Mary Kay Cabot at cleveland.com, who cited unnamed sources about Cleveland’s interest.
Better yet, the Browns may be ready to engage in a “bidding war” with the San Francisco 49ers for the latest Tom Brady backup destined to fail once he has to actually play in a game.
The silly season is upon us Browns fans, time to buckle up.
As the Cleveland Browns move past an atrocious 1-15 season, there are fans in one city who were not lucky enough to escape the ownership of an 0-16 season. Detroit Lions fans must live with the reality of an 0-16 finish in 2008, still being the only team to hold that mark after the Browns were able to pick up a single win in 2016. And before you want to fight me for bringing this up, rest easy, as I was recently asked my opinion on who would win a matchup between the 2016 Browns and the 2008 Lions by Mike Payton of Pride of Detroit.
He was bold, brash, confident and fearless. But in the end, he was shafted in the very place that he had once embraced. A little more than a month after the Bills fired Rex Ryan two years into a blockbuster five-year contract, the iconoclastic coach reflected on his brief run in Buffalo, his impending television debut and his never-ending chase to win the Super Bowl.
The Oakland Raiders’ bid to relocate to Las Vegas has hit another financial roadblock that could put the team’s planned move to the desert in jeopardy, a source told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne. With billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson angrily withdrawing from the Raiders’ stadium deal on Monday, investment bank Goldman Sachs is also re-evaluating its relationship with the planned deal, a source close to the negotiations told Shelburne.
The Buffalo Bills didn’t make a formal announcement about the futures of most of Rex Ryan’s assistants when they hired Sean McDermott as their head coach earlier this month, but that changed on Tuesday. The team announced that 14 coaches from last year’s staff will not be back in 2017. Among the coaches let go is Kathryn Smith, who became the first female assistant coach in the NFL when Ryan appointed her as the special teams quality control coach.
