They probably plan on signing him to the practice squad so they can develop him as a similar QB in case JF goes down.

Why would anyone trade for an UFA that they could pick up when cut day comes around?

If he is up against Grossman for the final spot, then to me it is a no brainer. Pick Shaw... Grossman might have experience, but he was not anything to write home about. His upper limit has been maxed and met already. With Shaw there is at least the opportunity to improve.
Hope Shaw gets the slot

From the pictures I saw of Rex on the sidelines he wouldn't be able to make it a whole drive without a donut break.

I know grossman knows shanahan's system but he doesn't know this system. There was no pistol, no QB runs, no read option while he was in washington. I am sure the passing trees and language might be close to the same but to say he knows the system is not entirely true.

Yep, but he's insurance....Rex has led his team to the Super Bowl one time...while Connor can be activated at anytime from the practice squad if needed. Just saying...

No, you said he would be cut "later today". That was what I took exception to.

Despite Clowns fans message boards and threads on Cockytalk, they have planned to have him on their practice squad and it looks like that is panning out.

I wish they would cut him so he could latch on somewhere else where he might get treated more fairly.

This is what he signed up for as a FA in the NFL. He has a tough road but he's got a shot.

Hell I'd play on the practice squad for a minimum of $312K a year. He'll be fine.

not much
http://http://www.cleveland.com/buds...t_on_time.html

The quarterback "competition" was so alarmingly unsatisfying that a small percentage of a fan base that loved Hoyer a year ago and celebrated Johnny Manziel on draft night has grown curious about ... no, not you, Rex ... undrafted Connor Shaw.

Unfortunately, it is not $312k. It is $6,300 minimum per week through the season which is a bit over $100k. That doesn't include what he is being paid now as UFA in camp. But the practice squad pay only lasts the season. The highest paid practice squad player makes about $300k but that is someone with a lot of experience. It is unusual for a team to pay much over the minimum unless the player is experienced and highly sought after by others.

I found this to be interesting. Sounds like good news for Shaw.

Quote:
The starters are tentatively scheduled to play less than a quarter in Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Bears in FirstEnergy Stadium, coach Mike Pettine said. Rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel will finish the first half, with fellow backups Connor Shaw and, possibly, Rex Grossman, working the second half.
