The Browns may need an extra body at quarterback for the start of the 2022 season and are reportedly looking at a few options this week.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports that two of those options are AJ McCarron and Josh Rosen. Jacoby Brissett and Josh Dobbs are the current backups to Deshaun Watson, who could be suspended under the personal conduct policy.
McCarron tore his ACL while playing for the Falcons during the preseason last year. The 2014 Bengals fifth-round pick appeared in 11 games and made three starts during his time in Cincinnati before moving on to stints with the Raiders and Texans. He also started one game in Houston.
Rosen was the 10th overall pick in 2018, nine spots behind former Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. The Cardinals selected him, but traded him to the Dolphins the following year after selecting Kyler Murray, and after an injury last season McCarron wound up as Matt Ryan’s backup in Atlanta.
