RGIII not the confirmed starting quarterback in Cleveland

The drama at the Cleveland Browns looks set to continue this off-season after already seeing a lot of twists and turns.

The Browns have made several headlines this summer after signing Robert Griffin III in free agency and then recently trading away the second overall pick in this year's draft.

Mind not made up

When the Browns finally cut controversial quarterback Johnny Manziel, everyone expected the next QB they picked up to earn their starting spot.

That QB took the shape of former Offensive Rookie of the Season Robert Griffin III who is looking to spark his NFL career back to life in Cleveland.

Many have already accepted RGIII as the new starter for Cleveland but that may not be the case, at least not according to Browns VP of football operations Sachi Brown.

Brown has recently commented on the quarterback situation in Cleveland and his comments do not make for good reading for the former Washington Redskins star Griffin.

Claiming that Griffin will have to earn his starting spot, Brown has made it clear that as always with the Browns, nothing is for sure.

The only argument against Brown's quotes is that Cleveland is a bit short of 'competant' quarterbacks so it is almost unthinkable to consider anyone else for the starting role.

With former Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Josh McCown and Austin Davis both on the roster, does RGIII have enough competition to see him fail to become the team's starter?

A tough year ahead

The Browns had a bad year in 2015 and earned the number two overall pick in this year's draft which they have now traded to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Browns now have the Eagles eighth pick overall which is just one of a number of picks that they acquired in the trade.

Cleveland have a very tough schedule in 2016 so it could be another bad year for the franchise, but surprises can come from anywhere in the NFL.
