GM Ray Farmer: Browns could make trade for QB during the draft
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With the Browns destined to find a starting quarterback, general manager Ray Farmer told reporters on Thursday that he's done a cost-benefit analysis on trading up for a quarterback, reports the Plain Dealer. The Browns have the No. 12 overall pick in this year's draft.

"Coach (Mike) Pettine has articulated that he wants a starter, so we have to find him a starter," Farmer said.

Farmer was noncommittal when asked whether he believed Johnny Manziel could be the No. 1 come next season. Farmer has spoken to Manziel twice by phone since Manziel checked into rehab.

Farmer wouldn't reveal if he has met with Brian Hoyer's representatives, as well. Hoyer beat out Manziel as the starter last season, but lost his job late in the year. He is expected to become free agent in March.

"Just because a player didn't succeed in one place doesn't mean he won't succeed in another," Farmer said, when asked of the free agency pool.

Brian Hoyer will consider 'all options' in free agency
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

With Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer headed for free agency, Hoyer told reporters he would like to return to Cleveland, but left open the possibility of leaving, reports ESPN.com.

Hoyer wants a chance to compete for a starting job and said if it's not in Cleveland, he would be open to signing with another team.

"For me all options are on the table, and obviously Cleveland has a big place in my heart," he said.

Hoyer competed with Johnny Manziel for the starting job in 2014. Hoyer started the first 13 games of the season and went 7-6, before Manziel briefly took over. Manziel recently entered rehab, which Hoyer praised.

"It takes a big person to take those steps," Hoyer said. "I'm hoping for the best for him."

Report: Browns considering trading up for Marcus Mariota
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Browns will give "very strong consideration" to trading up in an effort to draft Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, reports Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, citing sources within the organization. Cleveland owns the Nos. 12 and 19 picks in the 2015 draft.

In CBSSports.com's latest mock drafts, experts Rob Rang and Dane Brugler have Mariota going sixth to the Jets. An earlier report from The Star-Ledger indicated the Eagles also could try to trade up for Mariota, who played two years at Oregon under coach Chip Kelly.

Cleveland's quarterback situation is a mess. Brian Hoyer is headed for free agency, and Johnny Manziel just checked himself into rehab.

Brian Hoyer wants to compete for starting QB role in Cleveland
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Quarterback Brian Hoyer is open to returning to the Browns in 2015, if he is given a chance to compete for the starting role, Hoyer's agent Joe Linta told NBC Sports.

Hoyer started the first 13 games of the season and went 7-6. However, he was replaced by Johnny Manziel.

"I think the only thing that would make him not [want to] come back is if they said Manziel or whoever we take in the draft or whoever we sign in free agency is going to be the starter and you will only be the backup," Linta said.

Hoyer is set to become a free agent in the offseason and Linta added he expects to meet with the Browns soon to discuss their options.

Report: Browns have expressed interest in resigning Brian Hoyer
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Browns have expressed interest in resigning quarterback Brian Hoyer, his agent told ESPN.com Thursday.

"We've left the door open both ways," agent Joe Linta said.

Hoyer is expected to meet with general manager Ray Farmer and new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo in the coming weeks, according to the report. The quarterback had contract extension talks with the team fall through last summer, and negotiations were not picked up during the 2014 season. If Hoyer, who went 7-6 as the Browns starter, were to return in 2015, he would likely compete with second-year quarterback Johnny Manziel for the starting role.
