Could a Former Fourth-Round Draft Pick Help Save the Cleveland Browns?

Hey, Cleveland!

I know that it’s still January, but since the Browns’ record-breaking season is in the rearview mirror, now seems like a great time to think about the 2018 season. The team has so much need and only so many draft picks. Here’s a thought, just for fun, maybe. The powers that be do NOT spend a draft pick on a quarterback. Now, I’m not diminishing our need for talent behind center. I just don’t think another talented kid, with zero NFL experience is what Cleveland needs to help get the Browns on track. Instead, why not go after an established quarterback who can lead the team and help our young QBs develop their NFL skills?

One of the veteran quarterbacks that could potentially lead the orange and brown is Washington Redskins quarterback, Kirk Cousins. Even though his team struggled with injuries and a weak offensive line, Cousins put up numbers that were impressive. In the 2017 season, Cousins passed for 4,093 yards; this included 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He finished the season with a quarterback rating of 93.9. I know some observers claim he is a poor runner, his career rushing average is 379 yards. I believe that although his running game is not elite, Cousins brings arm strength, accuracy and leadership experience to any team he joins.

Here in Cleveland, there is a void as far as quarterback leadership is concerned. DeShone Kizer may or may not be the future of the Browns, but right now we need to devote some attention to the present. A veteran behind center would help tremendously.
