It was a gamble and I agree. But imagine if another team took Shaw. That would have forced the Browns to take another QB that had no idea about the playbook and essentially starting from day one. I'm sure there was some behind the door deals that ensured they would get Shaw because that would have been a big blow I think. And I'm sure they would have kept Grossman longer if they hadn't already had known.
