The Browns haven’t named their starting quarterback for the 2016 season, but it doesn’t sound like coach Hue Jackson plans to extend the competition too deep into August.
During a press conference on Thursday, Jackson said that “whoever earns the job is going to earn it on the field” and suggested that they’ll do it pretty soon.
“It’s going to show itself really quickly and it would definitely be before we play our first preseason game,” Jackson said.
Every indication is it will be Robert Griffin III who starts, and those on the Browns beat feel the same. We had a recent news story that Griffin will take 4-of-5 snaps with the first team in practice. The addition of Josh Gordon will help RGIII, but Gordon will miss a few weeks with an injury as well as the first four games of the season.
