The Cleveland Browns have been one of the teams heavily rumored to be in the market for a quarterback in this May’s 2014 NFL Draft. With them considering Brandon Weeden all but a bust, and Brian Hoyer not exactly being fully proven as “the guy,” it would make sense for new head coach Mike Pettine and officials to look for someone new under center.
Which is why it’s a tad bit odd that of the 60 interviews that the team was allotted at the recent NFL Scouting Combine, they not only didn’t interview Johnny Manziel as was reported, but they didn’t sit down with any of the quarterbacks in the group, Vic Carucci reported on the team’s radio show, via NFL.com.
Clevelandbrowns.com senior editor Vic Carucci reported on the team’s radio show, Cleveland Browns Daily, that the club not only passed on making Manziel one of its 60 allotted formal interviews, but didn’t do so with anyone at the quarterback position.
While this isn’t a guarantee that the team isn’t looking for someone to be their franchise quarterback, it doesn’t give the impression that they’re all that interested.
Eyes on Sammy Watkins, maybe?
