They are in a very good position with Connor...the only risk I see is if there's a chance someone grabs him off waivers and Cleve loses him from their practice team. That risk might cause Browns to put him on their active roster...if they think he's got future. But they are also trying to keep some spots open on the 53 to pick up some cuts from other teams they think are worth it.

Tough business...

Today at 4:00p.m. Est. The Cleveland Browns have to announce their final 53-man roster. One guy who is hoping he proved his worth to the team is quarterback Connor Shaw. Shaw was a winning guy who came to the Browns from the South Carolina Game Cocks

If you watched the Browns play the Chicago Bears, in the team’s final preseason game, you would have seen Shaw taking hand offs and running with the football. Shaw rushed for 20 yards on 6 carries, he had a long run of 14 yards in the game.

Was this head coach Mike Pettine’s way of finding out if he can justify keeping Shaw? The Browns are planning on carrying 3 quarterbacks this season. Those guys are assumed to be Brian Hoyer, Johnny Manziel and Rex Grossman.

I don't recognize any of the other names on the roster past the QBs. They had Willis McGahee last year, but he's gone.

They should cut Grossman, deal with a possible losing season and pick up some good draft picks on defense next year.

It's the same twisted fire sale rebuilding logic that the Colts used when Manning went down, but it makes sense the way the NFL works.

Someone on the ESPN site suggested they bring Grossman in as a QB coach. That's not a bad idea, either, if he could handle it.

Shaw will definitely get picked up by somebody. All they have to do is look at his preseason games and see he's a great player. I didn't like him being in Cleveland anyways. Let's hope some southern team picks him up.

Some cuts already per Cleveland Plains Dealer
http://www.cleveland.com/browns/inde...l#incart_river

"Leon McFadden, cornerback ...Other players cut by the Browns today include Dion Lewis, Nate Burleson, Garrett Gilkey and Chris Ogbonnaya."

Note - this would leave Isaiah Crowell (ga. suspended RB; then Alabama State) as their #3 RB based on the 100+ yard rushing in Thursday's preseason game.

If the Browns sign him to the practice squad, that's ok. What I'm really hoping is that another team has had their eyes on him and would be willing to take him.

I'd rather him go to another team that can use him as at least a solid backup. The Browns have always been horrible at handling QBs in the past. That's normally where QBs go to die.

What's a good way to keep track of Shaw's daily progress with the Browns or elsewhere? Through Twitter, Facebook, a website, etc?

Pettine is an idiot and Cleveland will be AWFUL this year. Better for Connor to get out of that mess and have a chance to latch on to a decent team.

Shaw just isn't an NFL quarterback. He's a good competitor though and someone that could be useful on a practice squad, but not a player that's a primary backup, let alone starter.

I don't see how it can be debated that Hoyer, Manziel and Grossman aren't better NFL quarterbacks. They aren't going to carry 4 quarterbacks. Shaw getting cut is probably the biggest non-surprise ever.
