  • Browns' Cody Kessler: Set for first-team reps
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kessler will rep with the first-team offense during full-squad workouts, Scott Petrak of the Chronicle-Telegram reports. Despite the Browns spending a second-round selection on Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer, Kessler will still get the first crack at locking down the starting job. Kessler showed flashes of potential in his rookie season, most notably a 336-yard showing against the Titans in Week 6. Unless Kizer proves to be a quick study, this should be Kessler's job to lose, while Brock Osweiler and Kevin Hogan also lurk in the background.

  • Kessler, along with the other quarterbacks on the roster, will compete for the starting job, according to Cleveland.com. Even though the Browns took DeShone Kizer in the second round of the draft, head coach Hue Jackson made it clear Kessler is still very much in the conversation to be the team's starting quarterback. In his rookie campaign, Kessler completed 65.6 percent of his passes for 1,380 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions across parts of nine games. He showed flashes of potential at times, but ball security was an issue. On the flip side, his knowledge of the offense should give him a leg up on the job as training camp begins.

  • Kessler worked this offseason with private quarterbacks coach Tom House on his arm strength and deep-ball accuracy, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports. Kessler also worked on getting rid of the ball faster, after taking 21 sacks and suffering two concussions last season despite attempting only 195 passes in nine games. He did complete 65.6 percent of those throws for 7.1 yards per attempt with six touchdowns and two interceptions, but the sacks and lack of big plays contributed to Cleveland's 0-8 record in his starts. It was still a solid showing for a third-round rookie, and with Robert Griffin and Josh McCown released in the offseason, Kessler could get another shot at the starting job. The Browns are expected to part ways with offseason addition Brock Osweiler, who was acquired along with a draft pick in a trade designed to free up cap space for the Texans. Cleveland does figure to add another quarterback during the upcoming draft, potentially providing Kessler with stiff competition for the starting job.

  • The Browns want to give Kessler another shot as the starter, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. The team plans to release Robert Griffin and hopes to trade the recently acquired Brock Osweiler. If both moves go through, Kessler and Kevin Hogan will be the remaining quarterbacks ahead of a draft that's weak at the position. A 2016 third-round selection, Kessler displayed some promise in limited action as a rookie, completing 65.6 percent of his passes for 7.1 yards per attempt, six touchdowns and two interceptions. He was good enough to get another shot, but not quite impressive enough to preclude the addition of competition.

  • Browns' Cody Kessler: Comes in for injured RG3
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kessler came in for an injured Robert Griffin (concussion), and completed two of three passes for 11 yards in Saturday's 20-17 win over the Chargers. Kessler came in with his team up 20-17 with 10:20 to play, and wasn't asked to do much as they continued to milk the clock and watch the Chargers miss field goals. The rookie will likely start the season finale at Pittsburgh if RG3 isn't cleared by then, as the Browns can fully focus on developing their quarterback of the future now that they finally have a win under their belt.
