Browns decline to name a starting quarterback - [Full Article]

Hue Jackson hasn't seen enough of Robert Griffin III over the past month to declare him the Browns' No. 1 quarterback, but expects to name his man long before the season opener Sept. 11 in Philadelphia.

"It's too soon,'' Jackson said after rookie minicamp practice during Fan Fest at FirstEnergy Stadium. "We haven't gotten into OTAs yet. We just have had off-season and voluntary veteran minicamp and now we've got the rookies in and I think that's way too soon. I would never do that. Again, every position is earned. There's always competition and there's a reason behind it."

"I don't have a timeline," he said. "Obviously, we're going to do it way before we play. If we can do it after OTAs, great. If it has to be at another time, great. We'll do it then, too. Whatever's best for us, that's what we'll do."

Fantasy Impact: 

We're expecting Griffin to begin the season as the starter, but that's no sure thing. Without Josh Gordon, the Browns are lacking in playmakers in the passing game, but Duke Johnson is a threat, Corey Coleman has potential and Gary Barnidge is a solid receiving tight end.
