Haslam says Browns have a ‘big list’ of private QB workouts


The Cleveland Browns have been oddly avoiding the quarterbacks in the 2014 rookie class, but don’t fear. According to Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, they have a “big list” of private quarterback workouts.

From Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

And although Haslam acknowledges how crucial an offseason this is, he won’t accompany GM Ray Farmer and coach Mike Pettine on their “big list” of private quarterback workouts, which begins Monday with Fresno State’s Derek Carr. When it comes to talent evaluation, Haslam will leave that to the experts.

He isn’t going on the workouts and also said he’d live the draft decisions up to Farmer and Pettine.

“We will agree strategically that these are the positions we’re going to concentrate on, but Ray and Mike and the football guys will concentrate on those specific decisions,” Haslam said.

“We will have so many conversations between now and the draft about who we’re picking. Are we picking this position or that position? Who are the top three or four guys? We will be well planned out, so that, ‘Hey, here’s plan A. But if plan A doesn’t work, here’s plan B, and here’s plan C. That’s what getting ready is all about. That’s what Ray and his group are focused on, and we’ll all participate. Mike will play a key role in that, too.”
