On Wednesday afternoon, the Cleveland Browns cut two of their quarterbacks on the roster in Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell, leaving some room open on the roster for an experienced, free agent veteran. According to Ian Rapoport, one of those targets to fill that void could indeed be Matt Schaub.
#Browns have released 2 QBs today — Brandon Weeden & Jason Campbell. Who will join Brian Hoyer? Don’t be surprised if it’s Matt Schaub

As it stands right now after the moves on Wednesday, Brian Hoyer is the man in charge, by default. It’s been rumored for a while that one of the quarterbacks coming out in the draft this May could be taken by the team with their fourth overall pick, but it would be beneficial to have someone experienced on the roster to aid in the development of whomever they select.
Schaub would fit that bill rather perfectly, and as Rapoport says, now seems like the likely candidate to wind up as the new savior in Cleveland.
