Doubt very seriously they will keep 4 QBs on the roster, ESPECIALLY with the signing of Grossman...someone who know's Shanahan's offense and has NFL experience.
Not how it works. They will cut him when they get down to 53 and put him on the practice squad when/if he clears waivers. This seems to have been the plan all along.

Exactly. they will keep him and probably not play him at all so no one else can get a look at him and noone else can sign him. By the time the final cuts roll around every team wil have a set roster. Oh well, he is probably better off learning the NFL game for a year on the practice squad and maybe someone will give him an actual chance next year.

As long as he's getting paid to play football its all good. This time last year he was making plans to join the Army, so this is a blessing. Nothing about the kid says NFL QB, but yet he continues to defy logic. Whatever happens to him, he's gonna be a winner in life.

If the Browns cut Shaw, he will "stolen" on Waivers. Hearing St Louis or Cincy might take him.

That's a bold statement, literally. Dad was a coach, brother played QB, he played WR and QB, won 11 games in each of his final 3 seasons, only threw one INT his final season, high football intelligence, dedicated, works hard. I don't know what more you could put on your resume if you were applying for an NFL QB job.

What do you mean "not how it works"?

I suggested they will cut Shaw...that is it.

Of course I know he will have to go through waiver process and then can be added to practice squad if he clears waivers...but again, that is after he is cut- which is all I suggested.

Non-print media and the sports talk airwaves. Mostly rumblings from fans and pundits. But as the old saying goes, where there's smoke...

You "think" or you just "wish"? Unless you know that to be true, why would you post something that negative?

I bet I already know the answer.

That can't happen....according to reliable sources, Shaw "probably" gets cut today.

I actually thought they would cut him in the final round. If they are going to play him, who knows?

He is fighting Grossman for the 3rd spot...imagine that! The last pre-season game should be interesting...and by and far will not be the biggest game Connor has played in.

Rex Grossman vs. Connor Shaw
Pettine indicated on Monday the coaching staff needs to assess where Grossman is, and he will likely start the third quarter. Because of Grossmanís familiarity with the offense, it might make sense for Connor Shaw to see all the fourth quarter reps. As iffy as Shaw has looked at times in practice, thereís no denying he led the team down the field against the Redskins, nearly walking away with the victory. Itíll be a tough balance, but it would be an educated guess to say we see all four quarterbacks play against the Bears.

Default Re: Connor Shaw Browns

as far as Connor being paid...

A player is eligible for the practice squad if he has accrued less than 9 games in an NFL season. Practice squad players earn a minimum of $6,000 per week (no maximum). Practice squad salaries DO count against the team's salary cap.


$6000 a week ain't bad, but it isn't what he's worth either. Of course if we had the talent I'd play for $312K a year!

Off of the brownie news site...The other word on the street is they may trade him since his stock is up...Hope he gets some snaps against the bears!

And yet it's a come-from-behind scenario, which is exactly what he's used to, if you stop and think about it.

I remember one of the comments on an ESPN page about the 2 QB system saying that first you need 2 QBs. They have a starting QB in name only.

Pettine has to live with his decisions during the regular season. If Hoyer and Manziel stink up the first half early, do you think Pettine puts Grossman in the first half to stop the bleeding and Connor gets the entire second half to himself? I do.

Do you think they will pipe in video from the Browns game at W-B when Connor puts points on the board Thursday night?

I would hope they would not do that until the Gamecocks have put the game away for good.

There are probably NFL rules against broadcasting part of an NFL game to a stadium full of people. If the NFL can't cash in, they don't want to do it.
