The rookie quarterback from Notre Dame and Britt did not get the chance to duplicate the play on July 30 because Britt had a scheduled day off.
"He's understanding the offense".
- Browns coach Hue Jackson says he's in no rush to name a starter at quarterback, but Friday's Orange and Brown Scrimmage should help offer some more clarity. "From OTAs, I could tell he was a different person". Those things are good.
"I have seen some good things from our guys". Again, it's just one day.
"If he keeps going, focuses on the track that he's on, to tell you the truth, he could be one of the great ones", said Britt, who played in six games with Jared Goff in Los Angeles last season. "We have a lot of work to do". While Kessler and Osweiler may look more polished as passers, neither has made a significantly compelling case that he is that much further ahead of the Browns' rookie that Kizer's upside shouldn't be factored into Jackson's decision. "It appeared Kizer had some receivers open, and he may have given up on the play too early". Kessler has also been helping Kizer learn the playbook along the way, so he may be paving the way for Kizer to win the starting job. The ultimate goal, and one that has been for years, is for the Browns to find a trusted signal caller that can lead the team out of the basement in the AFC North.
Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson admitted on Monday that DeShone Kizer still probably isn't ready to play in an National Football League game just yet. He might just slip into that starting role sooner than everyone anticipated by the tone of this report.
