Browns trade Kevin Hogan to Washington

AP

The team in a perpetual search for a quarterback keeps trading quarterbacks.

The Browns announced they have traded Kevin Hogan to Washington, in a deal involving a swap of sixth-round picks. The Browns moved from 205th to 188th in the sixth round in the deal.

Having already sent DeShone Kizer to Green Bay for defensive back Damarious Randall and Cody Kessler to Jacksonville for a conditional seventh-rounder, the Browns have now cleared the decks from last year, which seems reasonable.

They’ve already acquired Tyrod Taylor in another deal and signed backup Drew Stanton, to go with whatever fortunate soul gets picked first overall.

In Washington, Hogan joins Colt McCoy and Stephen Morris behind starter Alex Smith.

    Yet some other guy who a team would rather have than Kaep

  2. Why would anybody trade for Tim Tebow 2!!! Oh, the Redskins…

    The Chiefs lost one of the best back up QBs in the NFL to free agency, so that spot is open for business. Similar to Chase Daniel coming out, Hogan led a big program to a ton of wins and he can lead a locker room from day 1. Hogan is limited as a passer, but he’s comfortable managing and making plays in a pro-style system. –Mark Dulgerian

    When did a locker room leader every win a football game!

  3. I feel like getting anything in trade for Kevin Hogan is a win for the Browns & Dorsey. I will admit – this is the first time since they reentered the league that I’ve felt the Browns actually resembling a pro football team. Now they have to do the most Un-Browns thing of all time and actually hit on these draft picks.

    I’m rooting for them. Their fans deserve to see some good football.

    As bad as my bears have been I could not imagine seeing 1 win in two season total.

  4. I think the Browns and Giants want Darnold. As a Giants fan I personally want Mayfield. I think the poor team that takes Allen is going to be screwed.

  5. More proof the Redskins are a worthless and disgusting team – with a defense so putrid, it is now wasting draft picks on a guy who is more likely a french fry stuffer than a real asset to a professional football team!

    I can’t wait to turn on my team and to lambast them for their disaster that they are building.

  6. They seem to be moving in the right direction. They have a good line, aN average QB, a top QB prospect on the way, athletic tight end, decent RB, a very good WR with Landry and high upside guys with Gordon and Coleman (more so Gordon). The defense was underrated (hard to say that about an 0-16 team) but they were always put in terrible spots because Kizer always turned the ball over and they always played at a disadvantaged with a shortfield. I think this team is trending in the right direction, are they a playoff team NOW? No, but they are improving. Hard to be worse than 0-16 and the 1-15 they were the past two years. I am not so sure about retaining Jackson though. I know he had bad personnel but 1 win in 2 years is pathetic. I guess they just wanted continuity with some of the younger guys or the players like him or something but he definitely is going to be on a short leash. This team should win 5-8 games and if they dont its really bad on him and Haslam for making Dorsey keep him an extra year instead of instilling a new coach that Dorsey wanted year 1 (and in turn delaying the team ONCE AGAIN).

    The aforementioned Tebow won a bunch of them……

  8. The name of the team is the Redskins. Like the Red Mesa High Redskins, located on a Navajo reservation.

    The backup QB can be a critical player on the team – even if he doesn’t set foot on the field. A good backup QB is there to help the starter in innumerable ways. So that does translate sometimes into being a locker room leader. As Joe Gibbs said, the most important player on the team is the starting QB. The second most important player on the team is the backup QB.

  10. I wonder if the next Cleveland Browns drafted QB will study game film, study the playbook, put in extra time, and, you know, not be lazy and blame the team for not doing its homework on him.

  11. Will scam artist Haslam listen to the football people he has, such as they are, or have them draft on the advice of the homeless guy again?

  12. Trade details are out, Cleveland got a dozen Ben’s Chili Dogs from Ben’s Chili Bowl, a pepperoni and jalepeno pizza from Ledo’s and a case of DC Brau, not bad, not bad at all…

  13. What a Deal. 6.8 points on the draft trade chart which is equivalent to a couple of footballs.

  14. Kevin Hogan will become the Redskins starting QB in less than one year. Gruden will love the toughness, and I think Hogan finally got rid of that long release. Alex better stay healthy. He knows the drill.

  15. 1. I thought he was the Pats WR (that’s Chris Hogan).
    2. Agree on Josh Allen, stay away.
    3. It’s good to see the Browns and the Jaguars acting like real NFL tams. I hope they meet in an AFCG sometime soon.
    4. How can we miss Tim Tebow if he won’t go away?

  16. what on Earth do the Redskins want Kevin Hogan for? I guess at least they traded down & didn’t give away the 6th round pick entirely, but still what’s the sense?

  17. Cleveland here. I was at the San Fran game he won. Maybe the last of his career. The entire team was toxic. They had a “not are we going to get beaten, it’s going to be how bad will we be beaten”. The head coach had no idea what he was doing and the whole thing was just a grease fire. He was young and did he make mistakes? Like Nat King Cole sand “Blame It On My Youth”. I think he deserves another chance.We didn’t hate him here in Cleveland (at least I didn’t). He was young and in a very bad situation and didn’t know how to handle it. Maybe he has GROWN UP. He’s worth a chance.

    He might be able to help Alex Smith learn the offense a little faster. Hogan and Smith played together on KC in 2016. Now Washington has two guys from the KC offense who can help each other learn the new offense. So … basically they traded for a study buddy. I know it’s not much, but if they think Hogan can help Smith transition, then that’s the value.

    And, heck, if that’s working or he looks good in camp, they might even keep him as a third QB with a chance to graduate to second string when Colt McCoy’s contract expires after the season.

    Colt McCoy is still in the league?

    yes, colt has talent while kevin hogan does not.

  20. Kevin Hogan has been nothing but successful as a QB. Hogan ended his college career with a 65.9% completion percentage, 9,385 passing yards, 75 passing touchdowns and a school-record 15 rushing touchdowns. His 1,249 rushing yards is the most by a Stanford quarterback, and includes four of the top seven seasons in that category. His combined total offense of 10,634 yards is also a school record, and his career passing efficiency of 154.6 is second only to Andrew Luck, and he holds three of Stanford’s top 10 seasons in both categories. He has the most wins for a quarterback. Three Pac-12 championship games. Three Rose Bowls. He also holds the Browns record for longest rushing TD. The Redskins got a steal. I’m surprised that Dorsey let him go so cheap since he was the one who drafted him into the NFL!
