NFL Rumors: Matt Schaub to the Cleveland Browns is a 'serious possibility'

The Cleveland Browns may have found their next quarterback, and it might not be by way of the 2014 NFL Draft like some expect, rather they might be going after the signal caller of the team with the current top pick in this May’s draft, Matt Schaub.

According to a report from, the Browns going out and signing Schaub is not only a possibility, but it’s a pretty serious one at that.

It’s a “serious possibility” that the Browns will sign Texans veteran quarterback Matt Schaub to compete with Brian Hoyer, a league source told

What’s notable about this potential move is the fact that the Browns’ new offensive coordinator is Kyle Shanahan, whom Schaub not only played under in Houston, but played some of his best football when they were together.

It’s been reported for a while that the Texans are set to release Schaub as new head coach Bill O’Brien may just look to take his own QB in the draft with that top pick to develop as he begins to rebuild the Houston franchise.

So now, will Schaub be the quick-fix answer for the Browns?
