The Browns may bring in a quarterback in the wake of the injury to Brian Hoyer, but early word of a meeting between the team and Tyler Thigpen was incorrect.
Earlier on Friday, we cited a tweet from Tom Pelissero of USA Today as a report about an expected meeting between the Browns and Thigpen. Pelissero has recently reached out to PFT to clarify that he meant the Browns would be meeting late to discuss their quarterback situation and that he mentioned Thigpen in the same tweet as a name that could wind up in the mix. He’s posted a similar clarification on Twitter as well.
No meeting is scheduled between Thigpen and the Browns, who still have Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell on the roster. Brian Hoyer tore his ACL on Thursday night and Weeden steered them to 37-24 victory in Cleveland.
