Broncos signed QB Brock Osweiler, formerly of the Browns.
He's expected to sign for the veteran's minimum, which would provide some relief to the Browns, who had been on the hook for his entire $16 million salary. Osweiler, of course, began his career in Denver and at one point looked like the heir apparent to Peyton Manning. He's a low-risk flyer for the Broncos, who needed a backup quarterback with Paxton Lynch (shoulder) on the shelf. Osweiler is no threat to starter Trevor Siemian. Sep 2 - 4:56 PM

9News' Mike Klis reports the Broncos are expected to have interest in free agent Brock Osweiler.

The Broncos are the first team linked to Osweiler since his Cleveland release. Osweiler had the best season of his career filling in for Peyton Manning in 2015, but has struggled outside of Denver. The Broncos need a backup quarterback with Paxton Lynch (shoulder) expected to miss 2-4 games. Osweiler's contract contains offset language, so he figures to sign for the veteran minimum.

Browns released Brock Osweiler.

Cleveland made a good show of pretending to consider Osweiler for the starting job, likely in an effort to drum up trade interest. The offers never came, however, and now they are paying him $16 million to stay at home, although the second-round pick they got back from the Texans will soften the blow. DeShone Kizer will open the season as the starter.
Sep 1 - 4:55 PM

ESPN's Pat McManamon reports the Browns have renewed efforts to trade Brock Osweiler.

DeShone Kizer is on track to start Week 1 barring an implosion in the third week of the preseason, while Osweiler is not going to play this week. Osweiler's inactivity suggests the Browns are trying to keep him healthy in order to deal him. Osweiler essentially took a shot at Browns team hierarchy, replying "I think that's a great question for our general manager" when asked what would need to happen for him to win the starting job, suggesting it would be the GM's call and not coach Hue Jackson's. "I don't know where that came from," Jackson answered when asked about Osweiler's comment.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Brock Osweiler is not expected to play in the Browns' third preseason game.

ESPN's Field Yates wonders if the Browns are sitting Osweiler in hopes to trade him. It makes sense. Coach Hue Jackson named rookie DeShone Kizer the starter, and Cleveland has Cody Kessler as a capable No. 2. Osweiler has been brutal this preseason, completing 12-of-22 passes (54.5 percent) for 67 yards (3.05 YPA) and a 0:1 TD:INT ratio with massive accuracy issues. It'll be tough to find someone to take on his $16 million salary. The Browns may be comfortable outright cutting Osweiler.

Browns coach Hue Jackson hopes to name a starting quarterback by Wednesday.

Jackson said he has an "idea" of who will be the starter, but he wants to "watch the tape" of Monday night's game before making a final decision. Brock Osweiler got the start again on Monday night, but he once again struggled with ball placement and had a ball tipped and intercepted at the line. DeShone Kizer led two scoring drives, but he held the ball too long and had a couple very questionable throws. With solid talent on offense, the Browns could surprise if the quarterback situation cooperates.
Aug 22 - 8:34 AM

Brock Osweiler completed 6-of-8 passes for 25 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Browns' second preseason game against the Giants.

Osweiler got the start and played the first two series before giving way to rookie DeShone Kizer, who the Browns wanted to see get some work with the starters. Osweiler's first series ended with him throwing a red-zone interception off a tipped pass at the line. Despite being a towering 6-foot-7, tipped passes have long been a problem for Osweiler due to a long, looping delivery. Osweiler's completion percentage looks great, but his receivers had to adjust to a number of poorly thrown balls. Accuracy remains a massive problem. Cleveland doesn't stand much of a chance with Osweiler.

Brock Osweiler will start the Browns' second preseason game.

It's an expected decision despite Osweiler's poor showing in his preseason debut. DeShone Kizer will be the second quarterback through the rotation and remains in the mix for Cleveland's Week 1 job. Whoever starts the third preseason game will open the year as the starter.
Aug 16 - 4:46 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 6-of-14 passes for 42 yards in Thursday’s preseason opener.

Osweiler began the game with three consecutive three-and-outs against a Saints defense missing several starters before leading the Browns on a 74-yard drive that ended in a turnover on downs. Whether the Browns were starting Osweiler in the hopes of creating a trade market for him or just attempting to motivate either of their young quarterbacks behind him on the depth chart remains to be seen, but Osweiler isn't a serious long-term answer for the Browns.
Aug 10 - 9:46 PM

ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon believes the Browns' starting quarterback job is Brock Osweiler's "to lose."

Per McManamon, Osweiler has had his best two practices of camp the last two days after it was announced he would start the preseason opener. Osweiler has taken all of the first-team reps, with DeShone Kizer with the twos and Cody Kessler demoted to the third team. Osweiler would apparently have to lay an egg -- which he's very capable of doing -- to lose the job, while Kizer would have to light it up.

Speaking on the Dan Patrick Show, ESPN's Adam Schefter said the Browns were "not interested" in trading Brock Osweiler to the Dolphins.

It does not sound like the Dolphins ever officially made an offer -- Schefter said Miami was focused on Jay Cutler the entire time -- but Cleveland's lack of interest in moving Osweiler is notable, especially after they named him the starter for the first preseason game. It remains possible the Browns are just trying to drive up the price on a future trade, but Osweiler opening the season as Cleveland's starter is a possibility which has to be taken seriously.
Aug 7 - 9:55 AM

Browns coach Hue Jackson announced Brock Osweiler will start the first preseason game.

"Brock hasn’t really gotten any first team reps and this will give him that chance," Jackson said. "We look forward to seeing what he can do with this opportunity throughout the week and against the Saints." As Jackson points out, Osweiler has been working exclusively with the second-team offense, but Cody Kessler's struggles mean Cleveland has to give Osweiler a real look. The best-case scenario for the Browns would be DeShone Kizer winning the job outright, but he reportedly "looked like a rookie" during Friday's scrimmage. This could all simply be a ploy to prop up Osweiler's trade stock, but his starting chances have to be taken seriously at this point.

ESPN Cleveland reports "signs are pointing" to Brock Osweiler starting the Browns' first preseason game.

Osweiler hasn't seen many reps with the first-team offense, but outplayed DeShone Kizer and Cody Kessler in Friday's team scrimmage. Coach Hue Jackson said he could "shake things up" next week, suggesting Osweiler will be the new starter at practice. It's an unexpected turn in the Browns' quarterback battle. With Kessler struggling, the Week 1 job may be down to Osweiler and Kizer.
Aug 5 - 5:39 PM

Brock Osweiler said he is working hard on his "fundamentals" this offseason.

"I think that’s something that slid last season. I’m not going to go into great detail on that, but they did," Osweiler said in an obvious shot at the Texans. "If you go back to 2015, I feel like my fundamentals were pretty tight." The last assertion is debatable, but Osweiler has reportedly "impressed" during the offseason program and clearly said he wants "to be the starter of this team." That still seems unlikely, but it looks like he will get his shot in camp.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Brock Osweiler has "impressed" at Browns OTAs.

One player told Schefter that he "wouldn't be surprised if Brock is QB1 heading into camp in July." Cody Kessler opened OTAs as the starter, but Osweiler, by all accounts, has been the most impressive quarterback in Browns practices. Some of the local media isn't buying into the hype, however, as ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi believes rookie DeShone Kizer is "gaining on" Osweiler and Kessler. This competition will carry over into preseason action.
