Cleveland Browns not interested in trading for Josh Freeman

Yeesh. Talk about a dry market.

Just minutes ago, news broke that the quarterback needy Jacksonville Jaguars weren’t interested in trading for recently benched Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman and now the same can be said for the Cleveland Browns.

While the Browns might not be as desperate as the Jaguars are for a quarterback, it’s a relatively close race, but they too feel they have better internal options than Freeman according to Pro Football Talk:

As Gantt recently has pointed out, the Jaguars aren’t interested in quarterback Josh Freeman.

The Browns aren’t, either.

Per a league source, the franchise that doesn’t seem to want its 2012 first-round quarterback doesn’t want Tampa’s 2009 first-round quarterback, either.

The Browns remain in the hunt for a franchise quarterback.  They’ll presumably target one in the draft.  Unless Brian Hoyer becomes a franchise-type guy on the fly.

Freeman isn’t anything more than a stop-gap type quarterback, which is something both Cleveland and Jacksonville aren’t in need of. There’s really little reason for either team to show much interest.

Now, we’re waiting on you, Oakland…
