Default Re: Connor Shaw is a Cleveland Brown!!!

Taking Shaw was a very smart move for CLE. One of the criticisms of JF was that he did not study the game, he did not work very hard, he didn't even call his own coverages at the line while at A&M. Plus, he is an injury risk.

CLE can build an offense around JF and if he fails or gets hurt, they don't have to completely change their offensive scheme. They can plug in Shaw who will work his ass off and be ready when called.

Plus, JF may be in jail and suspended by August.

I agree with everything in your post, both bad news and good. But here is one more bit of "good" to consider: If it comes down to hanging on by snagging a practice squad spot (which would be the best scenario if Cleveland only carries two quarterbacks on the 53 man roster -- Manziel and Hoyer), then Connor would get the practice squad nod over Young or Thigpen.

Practice squad spots are reserved for young, developmental players, not veterans. In fact, if a player has played in more than 9 NFL regular season games, he is ineligible for a practice squad -- this would rule out both Young and Thigpen. Most people don't realize that a practice squad consists of only 8 players, maximum. If a team carries only 2 quarterbacks on the 53 man roster, a young quarterback will typically be one of those 8 players.

With all of this in mind, I do like Connor's chances of becoming Cleveland's #3, either as a member of the 53 man roster or as a player in waiting on the practice squad. Young or Thigpen are only in the mix to be a #3 if Cleveland feels they need another veteran backup on the 53 man roster in addition to Hoyer. Some would consider that to be dead weight. With Cleveland in "building for the future" mode, I think they're more likely to opt for developing a young backup with a playing style somewhat similar to Manziel's (aka Connor)...thus giving them (1) "The new face of the franchise" Manziel (2) Veteran backup Hoyer (3) Backup in training Connor Shaw.

Maybe this is why Connor's agent chose Cleveland. We'll see how it plays out.

Great move by Cleveland to get another QB like JF in case of injury.

Reason I ask, we keep hearing Connor should have picked another team but we don't really know who that team may have been or what situation he would've been placed under.

Vince being let go hopefully means the Browns realize what a talent Connor is and what he can develop into.

Cleveland Browns sign 11 undrafted free agents, including four wide receivers

Browns also announced the release of quarterbacks Vince Young and Alex Tanney.

Competition with this JF kid may help Conner take his game to a new heights.

Connor Shaw is destined for practice squad, with an opportunity to do more. In the NFL, very few get that far. Hats off to you, Mr. Shaw, and good luck.

A practice squad spot seems like a virtual lock (and a nice fallback) IF he doesn't make the 53 man roster. If they keep 3 quarterbacks on the 53 man roster, it's shaping up as a battle between Connor and Tyler Thigpen for #3. (Unless Connor plays like a cyborg hybrid of Montana, Brady, Unitas, and Elway, they will not move him ahead of Manziel or Hoyer by week one.) Even though Thigpen is a 7 year NFL veteran, Connor CAN win the battle for number 3.

With the roster moves they've made at QB, it seems evident they've brought Connor in to develop as an eventual ideal #2 to Manziel (similar style and physical attributes).
