If the Browns want to run a trick play on which the quarterback drops back to pass, throws the ball deep into the end zone, bounces it off the goal post and into the receiver’s hands for a touchdown, they’ve got their man.
OK, technically that wouldn’t work (a pass that hits the goal post is incomplete), but they’ve still got the guy who can do it: Alex Tanney revealed on Twitter that he is heading to Cleveland.
Tanney is the quarterback best known for posting a trick-shot video of himself to YouTube, showing his ability to make absurd throws into moving cars, bouncing passes off goal posts from all angles, and making full-court basketball shots with footballs. The trick-shot video got him noticed as an undrafted rookie out of Monmouth College, and he has spent time with the Chiefs and Cowboys.
Now he’ll play for the Browns. And you can already hear the calls from Cleveland fans for Tanney to replace Brandon Weeden.
