Cleveland Browns May Keep Only Two QBs on 53-Man Roster

The Cleveland Browns will be beginning training camp in just a matter of days on July 19 in Berea, Ohio and there will be plenty of intriguing positional battles going on throughout camp. While the focus may be the starting safety positions, the back up quarterback battle could be one to watch as well.

ESPN Cleveland passed along the belief on Monday morning that the team could go in to the season with only two quarterbacks on the 53-man roster.

We know that Brandon Weeden will be the starter, but that leaves free agent acquisitions Jason Campbell and Brian Hoyer fighting for the No. 2 job and a roster spot.

Campbell was less than stellar last season with the Chicago Bears and Hoyer has been bouncing around the league without ever earning a real shot, so the two signal-callers will need to put on their big boy pants and get ready for a great fight.

While Campbell has a bigger body of work, Hoyer has been the one to get praise from the media despite his lack of on-field production.

It will be interesting to see what quarterback ends up coming out on top after training camp and the preseason, since both men have the ability to step in and be a spot starter if Weeden is less than impressive or injured.

This will be a big decision for the promising young Browns squad heading in to the season, so we have a feeling you will be hearing a lot more about it in the coming weeks.
