Drew Stanton signs with Browns
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting free agent QB Drew Stanton has agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Cleveland Browns.
Stanton will join a Browns team that is in search of their future quarterback. However, although Stanton appeared in five games last season, starting in a handful of them, he will likely be competing with the likes of Kevin Hogan and Cody Kessler for a reserve spot on the QB depth chart. Tyrod Taylor, Cleveland's other free agent signing at the quarterback position, is fully expected to open the year as the QB1, barring another significant personnel addition at the position during the upcoming NFL Draft. A seven-year veteran in the league, I believe Stanton is poised to make the Browns' final roster over Cody Kesler, who is a product of the Sashi Brown regime.
