Browns QB shopping after Campbell’s concussion


The Browns can’t keep quarterbacks on the field, and are especially distressed about the latest change.

Browns coach Rob Chudzinski just told reporters that starter Jason Campbell suffered a concussion in yesterday’s loss to the Steelers, and that they’d likely sign a quarterback prior to Sunday’s game against the Jaguars.

Chudzinski also indicated he wasn’t pleased that no flag was thrown on Steelers cornerback William Gay, and that they’d be sending the play to the league for review. At the least, Gay can probably expect a FedEx from the league later this week.

Brandon Weeden came in to replace Campbell, and was the only quarterback left on the roster. The Browns don’t have one on the practice squad, so for practical purposes, they’d need another arm to get through a week of practice even if Campbell is cleared later this week.

    Come on, Chud…it’s the Steelers. The rules aren’t applied as stringently to them. If they were, they couldn’t uphold the “mystique” of the Steel Curtain, and instead would just be a bunch of heavily penalized punks. You should know they’re allowed to bang around the heads of QBs and not get called for it.

    I’m actually shocked William Gay didn’t flop like he had been shot by a sniper after cracking Campbell in the dome as he does whenever else he is touched by a blocker.

    I think Scott Tolzien will be available later today.

    Has Green Bay cut Matt Flynn yet?

    Where are all the mouthbreathing Cleveland Browns homers praying for Akili Quinn?!?

    I apologize to small percentage of the Cleveland Browns supporters who are well adjusted and know the difference between a good quarterback and a hometown guy who could never achieve against good college teams.

    Touch and go if the weather will be too bad for Troy Smith to crawl there before the weekend.

    Cleveland receivers are 4th in the NFL in dropped passes.

    Cleveland’s receivers would love to use Tebow for an excuse.

  10. firerogergoodellnow says: Nov 25, 2013 12:39 PM

    Don’t forget about us!!!

    Vince Young & JaMarcus Russell

  11. NoobTubeTV says: Nov 25, 2013 12:43 PM

    Just leave Weeden in as starter and play the the #1 pick.

  12. harrisonhits2 says: Nov 25, 2013 12:50 PM

    Fatmarcus Russell looked up from his box of donuts and case of twinkies when he heard this and thinks the Browns should be giving him a call.

    Jeff Garcia

    CAREER 87.5 QB Rating
    CAREER 64% completion percentage

    Skip over Tebow and go directly to Colt Brennan?

  15. wisconsinhillfolk says: Nov 25, 2013 12:56 PM

    Factory of 😦

  16. stunzeed5 says: Nov 25, 2013 1:04 PM

    Colt Brennan? lololololol x 100. Can’t believe the intellect of some of the mouth breathers in here. Dude is in the Lingerie Football League (I think).

  17. coltzfan166 says: Nov 25, 2013 1:05 PM

    Garcia wants the job

    I believe Jeff George is always in better shape than 75% of league’s current starters and ready to go?

  20. conormacleod says: Nov 25, 2013 1:18 PM

    Anybody want to comment about how the league coddles QB’s, while all of them are being carted off the field? What would the league look like without all the protection QB’s are given?

  21. brenenostler says: Nov 25, 2013 1:30 PM

    Granted this one was a cheap shot, but in reality, Campbell can’t play in the NFL. Not because of skill, but because he’s so injury prone that he doesn’t make a reliable starter or back up.

  22. doctorrustbelt says: Nov 25, 2013 1:34 PM

    Jason Campbell is the quarterback version of Darren McFadden.

    Definitely… a cheap shot.

  23. surfinbird1 says: Nov 25, 2013 1:55 PM

    Should have traded for Ryan “vapor trail” Mallet with all the pics they have.

  24. pfatl says: Nov 25, 2013 3:07 PM

    Trade for MV7.

  25. audient says: Nov 25, 2013 3:08 PM

    My point wasn’t that the Browns ought to sign Colt Brennan. My point was that I think so little of Tebow, I’d just as soon sign Colt Brennan. And I only picked on Colt because the LA arena team that tried to claim Tebow went and got Colt after Tebow snubbed them. No offense intended to Colt, all offense intended to Tim!

  26. thatstinks says: Nov 25, 2013 3:22 PM

    What kind of qb shopping can a team do now ? The trade deadline is well past and the season it 75% done. Whoever is available no team ever wanted in the most dire of circumstances .

  27. fat4jc says: Nov 25, 2013 3:29 PM

    I’m not so sure the concussion didn’t come from Campbell’s head bouncing off the turf. Just saying…

  28. sillec28 says: Nov 25, 2013 4:06 PM

    Josh Freeman might be available after his miserable performance in his one start for the Vikings. Then again, would the Browns (or any team other than the Vikings) want him?

  29. pmars64 says: Nov 25, 2013 4:17 PM

    When’s the draft?

  30. markburst says: Nov 25, 2013 7:50 PM

    Brees, Manning, Brady… they get the flag. Pryor and Campbell not so much.

  31. evansvc says: Nov 25, 2013 10:32 PM

    Cleveland…..Make an opening on your 53 man roster now and “Bring in VINCE YOUNG”… Vince is mobile– with talent and playoff experience…. He is hungry, motivated and determined to show he can play this game at a high level…. Vince Young know how to WIN….
    He is a LOW risk-HIGH reward type of guy… and a wise choice for any GM/Head Coach looking to upgrade their quarterback pool….

  32. evansvc says: Nov 25, 2013 10:35 PM

    Vince Young would be a good choice…

  33. crownofthehelmet says: Nov 26, 2013 1:39 AM

    I’ve gotta think Oz is ready to talk by now.

  34. pabrownsfan says: Nov 26, 2013 9:20 AM

    I am really looking forward to the draft now. At least it was a fun couple of weeks.

  35. ronarch13 says: Nov 26, 2013 1:10 PM

    Maybe this time in the draft we won’t have to worry about a Walrus watching an ESPN sideshow of some QB that hits clay targets with a football, from his over sized La-Z-boy while sipping martinis and reading a book from half-priced-books. Here is to you Mike, who drafted the OLDEST PLAYER EVER as a suitable QB. Thanks for nothing.
