Jets GM Mike Maccagnan wouldn't commit to Josh McCown as the team's starting quarterback.
Maccagnan said that decision will be made by coach Todd Bowles. He added that it's "highly unlikely" the Jets will add another quarterback in free agency but acknowledged that drafting one is a possibility. McCown is still the odds-on favorite to start but it's a near certainty that his body will break down at some point. That would open the door for Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg to make starts later in the year. Mar 24 - 2:37 PM

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.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports Robert Griffin III has been given first-team reps in Browns voluntary practices, but that Josh McCown has received more.

It's not surprising after McCown started eight games for the Browns last season as Griffin remained glued to the bench in Washington. We would expect it to change as the offseason rolls on, however. That, of course, is provided the Browns don't select a quarterback at No. 2 overall.
