The Cleveland Browns do not appear to be all that enamored with the quarterbacks expected to be available in free agency beginning this weekend.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns have been in trade talks to acquire a quarterback or quarterbacks. No word on what teams they might be speaking with, but naturally the typical names are being mentioned like Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb along with Seattle’s Matt Hasselback with Mike Holmgren now running the show in Cleveland and former Philly executive Tom Heckert the GM. It’s interesting that Cleveland has committed to this approach to improve their quarterback situation, but it’s not a surprise.
With a thin draft class at the quarterback position and not a lot of coveted talent expected to be there in free agency, the trade route makes sense. Of course one needs an interested trade partner.
Depending on how you look at it and what you’d like to see the Bills draft at ninth overall in April, if the Browns acquire a QB via trade it would make it one less team in the top 10 that needs a QB. Cleveland drafts seventh overall, two ahead of Buffalo.
