Cleveland Browns will certainly be taking a quarterback at the NFL Draft in May.
We all knew that there was an almost certain chance that the Browns would draft a QB, and today's events have meant that possibility has become a certainty.
Today's events refer to Cleveland's decision to release two QB's from their roster as they look for a major shake-up heading into the 2014 NFL season.
Brandon Weeden was the first QB to be shown the door by the Browns today after spending two seasons with the franchise.
The 30-year-old entered the NFL later than most after a brief career as a professional baseball pitcher.
Next to go for the Browns was Jason Campbell as Cleveland try a major overhaul under new coach Mike Pettine.
All of this points to the arrival of a QB in the first round of the draft.
The AFC North team will likely have many options to pick from when the fourth overall pick is on the clock.
Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Manziel and Blake Bortles are the top three candidates for the Browns so far.
In a statement, the Browns general manager Ray Farmer explained the team's decision.
"The circumstances in which he found himself were not easy for him or the team. After discussions with Brandon and his agent, we’d like to give him the ability to pursue other opportunities.
“We appreciate Jason’s contributions to the Browns in 2013. He’s a respected veteran player in this league. We felt like at this time, early in the free-agency period, we would give him a better opportunity to move forward. We wish Jason the best in his future endeavors.”
