The Cleveland Browns are forced to go back to former first-round pick Brandon Weeden as the starting quarterback after Jason Campbell suffered a concussion during the team’s Week 12 loss to the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers, which means the team is currently thin at quarterback.
In order to add some depth to the position, the Browns plan on working out a free agent quarterback to see if he can be the man to bolster their depth chart.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns plan to work out quarterback Caleb Hanie on Tuesday.
There is no word on whether or not they plan on signing him.
Hanie gained some starting experience when he was with the Chicago Bears, before leaving for the Denver Broncos last season. His most recent stop also came in the AFC North, where he spent the offseason and preseason working with the Baltimore Ravens.
Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski had previously said the Browns plan to sign a quarterback before Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, so we will have to see whether or not Hanie is that guy.
