As it turns out, the Browns didn’t make a decision on which extra veteran quarterback to keep, they kept both of them.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns have signed Tyler Thigpen to a one-year deal, while Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports they’re going to sign Vince Young too.
Both quarterbacks were in minicamp with the Browns this week on a tryout basis, and both apparently made a good impression on Cleveland coaches.
Many thought Young was done after last year’s preseason cup of coffee with the Packers. He hasn’t been on a regular season roster since 2011, and had a job waiting on him with the University of Texas.
The former BCS Championship Game-winner gives the Browns some name recognition at the position, where they also have incumbent starter Brian Hoyer and trick-shot artist Alex Tanney.
Of course, the Browns might add even more next week, as they’re still expected to draft a quarterback of the future, again.
