Jets coach Todd Bowles said there will be an open competition at quarterback.
Bowles said Josh McCown, Bryce Petty, and Christian Hackenberg will all get their chance to win the starting job. The coach also did not rule out the possibility of a rookie being added to the mix. McCown is the favorite to win any competition, but he has not been able to stay healthy the last several years. It is likely multiple quarterbacks start for the Jets in 2017. Mar 28 - 10:21 AM

Cody Kessler (concussion) has been cleared to return for Week 9.

Coach Hue Jackson hedged on whether Kessler would immediately reclaim the starting job, saying he had to see how the rookie looks in practice. Josh McCown stuffed the stat sheet in Kessler's absence Sunday, but saw his play gradually go off the cliff. Kessler should be considered the favorite to start against Dallas.

Speaking Monday, Browns coach Hue Jackson called Cody Kessler "our starter."

In other words, Josh McCown (collarbone) won't be reclaiming the starting job even once he's back to full health. McCown has resumed practicing, but seems a week or two away from holding the clipboard. The Browns haven't won a game on his watch, but Kessler has been surprisingly competent. Jackson clearly has an interest in developing a quarterback the Browns surprisingly took in the third round.

Speaking on PFT Live, ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi said the Browns' quarterback battle is "not an open competition."

Grossi said Robert Griffin III will get four out of five reps with the first-team offense. Coach Hue Jackson has refused to name Griffin the starter heading into camp, but it appears the job is all but sewn up. If third-rounder Cody Kessler shows well enough to earn the backup job, the Browns could trade Josh McCown in camp.
