Browns Release Former First-Round Quarterback

The Cleveland Browns have been one of the most unsuccessful organization in the NFL when it comes to the Quarterback position since 2000, and while the decision to bring in Deshaun Watson ahead of a big suspension may be questionable, they've certainly made a decent move today. The team has been very competitive with Jacoby Brissett under centre, and with both Kellen Mond and Joshua Dobbs behind him, the team has today officially released former No. 10 overall pick Josh Rosen from the practice squad.

Cleveland were Rosen's sixth team in just five years at the NFL level, and while Quarterback's like Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen from the 2018 draft class have absolutely lit the league on fire, Rosen has struggled to catch on anywhere. Given his reputation around the league, this may have been Rosen's last chance at the NFL level, but with plenty of other leagues forming around the United States, there's a chance he can work hard and get back to the NFL.

Either way, right now, Josh Rosen's time in the NFL appears to be over, and given the hype around his entry into the league, it's quite surprising that he was the worst of all the first round QB's. Not everyone from that draft has had success, as Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold have both moved teams and had mixed results in the league, but none more disappointing than Rosen, who showed so much promise.
