Re: QB Status for the Browns
At this point in the season, who ever they'd pick, the salary would be pro-rated so they wouldn't be on the hook for an entire season's pay. You have veteran's minimums but aside from that, what free agent is really going to play hard ball right now. It's sign for the minimum on a contender or do what you've been doing. Going back to the off-season, they could've offered the minimum and groomed a young kid as the 3rd. You also have to determine as a franchise how much stock do you put into your back-up with your starter's history of injuries.
