Cleveland Browns: Brock Osweiler will start at quarterback August 10

"At this stage in the evaluation process of our quarterbacks, we are going to have Brock start the preseason opener against the Saints on Thursday night", Jackson's statement said.

"A lot goes into our evaluation but it's always going to be about efficiently and effectively running the offense", Jackson said.

If you're vying for Brock Osweiler to be the Cleveland Browns' starting quarterback this season, you'll be pleased to see him in action this week. "We look forward to seeing what he can do with this opportunity throughout the week and against the Saints". Kessler started eight games for the Browns last year, and Jackson gave him the first opportunity during this training camp but said in July it would be a competition between Kessler, Osweiler and DeShone Kizer, a rookie quarterback from Notre Dame the Browns selected in the second round of the this year's National Football League draft. Even though Osweiler has received nearly no first-team reps in practice, he's going to start?

Brock Osweiler has risen from trade throw-in to preseason starter. Or, this is just the Browns being the Browns.

"It's very vital", said Kizer, the former Notre Dame starter.

Kizer was probably the most consistently impressive quarterback through the early part of camp, though that's a low bar. Miami coach Adam Gase, who coached Osweiler in Denver, reportedly reached out to Cleveland last week after Ryan Tannehill injured his knee.

And the Browns go through five quarterbacks in a span of eight games. The Browns were willing to take on the $16 million in guaranteed money remaining on Osweiler's contract - it's all in 2017 - to acquire the pick and the player. It's not the worst idea to showcase Osweiler in a potential trade, knowing there will be injuries in August.

The Dolphins made their signing of Cutler, who'd previously retired for a broadcasting job at Fox, official Sunday. "They're all competing and trying to get better, and that's a good thing".
