Browns bench DeShone Kizer for Kevin Hogan

What a mess.

Well, it’s safe to say that if the Cleveland Browns hold a pick higher than the San Francisco 49ers in the 2018 NFL Draft, they will probably be selecting a quarterback in the first round. The Browns have officially scuttled the DeShone Kizer experiment after only four games. The team replaced him last week with Kevin Hogan, and has named Hogan the starter moving forward.

Kizer won the job out of training camp, and at the time, Hue Jackson said they would stick with him through the lumps that come with a rookie quarterback. He said, "This is not just for the moment. We're going to get with DeShone, ride with him through it all.''

Apparently that only meant four weeks. The Browns are struggling, but four games seems like an awfully small sample size when it comes to figuring out what you’ve got in a rookie quarterback.

It’s not surprise our friends at Dawgs By Nature are not at all pleased with the decision.

The Browns have gone through a ridiculous run of quarterbacks over the years, and it’s safe to say they’ll be adding another starter to that long list for 2018. I hope Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold, or whomever is ready to join the rollercoaster that is the Cleveland Browns.
