  • Browns' Joshua Dobbs: Locked into No. 2 role

    Browns coach Kevin Stefanski affirmed Thursday that Dobbs is the team's primary backup quarterback behind current starter Jacoby Brissett, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Dobbs' solid preseason showing allowed him to beat out fellow backup signal-caller Josh Rosen, who was signed to the Browns' practice squad Thursday, for this role behind Brissett. However, it's uncertain where the current No. 2 quarterback will slot into Cleveland's depth chart once eventual starter Deshaun Watson returns from his 11-game suspension to start the regular season.

  • Browns' Joshua Dobbs: Draws Sunday start

    Dobbs will start Sunday's preseason game against the Eagles.

    With Deshaun Watson and Jacoby Brissett not in line to play Sunday, Dobbs will draw the start versus Philadelphia, with Josh Rosen next in line to see QB snaps. Given that Watson will be suspended to begin the 2022 season, as things stand either Dobbs or Rosen are in line to serve as Brissett's top backup Week 1.

  • Browns' Joshua Dobbs: Scores in Sunday's start

    Dobbs completed 14 of 20 passes for 141 yards and rushed four times for 47 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-20 preseason loss to the Eagles.

    Dobbs started and played the entire first half as well as Cleveland's opening series of the third quarter. He led the Browns to scores on each of his four drives, including a three-yard touchdown rush of his own during the first quarter. After a successful showing, Dobbs handed a 20-14 lead over to Josh Rosen, who subsequently completed just 7 of 20 passes for 88 yards. Based on that contrast, it's fair to say Dobbs outperformed Rosen, as the pair compete to serve as Jacoby Brissett's backup heading into the regular season, when fellow quarterback Deshaun Watson will be suspended for the first 11 games.

  • Browns' Joshua Dobbs: Frontrunner for backup job

    Dobbs is currently the favorite to open the season as the Browns' backup quarterback, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Head coach Kevin Stefanski said Friday that Dobbs remains ahead of Josh Rosen for the backup job behind Jacoby Brissett, but it's still an active competition. Dobbs joined the Browns this offseason after spending the 2021 campaign as a member of the Steelers, failing to enter any games during the season.

  • Browns' Joshua Dobbs: Leads all scoring drives

    Dobbs completed 10 of 13 passes for 108 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 24-13 win over Jacksonville in preseason action.

    Dobbs led the offense's three scoring drives -- the defense produced one touchdown -- and got the bulk of the snaps at quarterback after the coaching decision to rest top backup Jacoby Brissett. There are no changes in the quarterback depth chart, as Brissett will fill in for Deshaun Watson, whose suspension will be at least six games. It is clear that Dobbs is the No. 3 ahead of Josh Rosen, who engineered the final three possessions.

  • Browns' Joshua Dobbs: Vying for backup job

    Coach Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that Dobbs has a leg up on Josh Rosen to be the team's third quarterback behind Jacoby Brissett, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    If Deshaun Watson is suspended prior to Week 1 as expected, that would make Dobbs the Browns' de facto No. 2 option. That might make him worthy of stashing in uber-deep two-quarterback leagues, as Cleveland figures to be playing from behind often as long as Watson is out, and Dobbs does possess the tools to produce as a rusher if nothing else.
