Cleveland Browns name DeShone Kizer starting QB

Cleveland Browns name DeShone Kizer starting QB

"I thought he managed the team well, accomplished some things and we'll keep coaching him up".

Overall, Kizer made Jackson look rather wise in deeming him "the guy" for at least this week. "We're not going to blink about it and move forward". He will be the first Browns rookie to start the season under center since Brandon Weeden in 2012.

"He's earned the right to play through his preparation", Jackson told reporters.

There's good reason to be excited about his potential, but no reason to be unrealistic about his half in Tampa.

Following a neutral-zone infraction on Browns rookie defensive end Myles Garrett, Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston came out firing to start the drive, completing a 17-yard pass to tight end Cameron Brate on the right side of the field.

The announcement ends speculation over which quarterback would win the starting position: in addition to Kizer, Brock Osweiler, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan had been in the running. I'm very proud of what I was able to show my teammates and the coaching staff throughout OTAs going back to day one when we were just given the playbook and how I mastered that. He also has rushed eight times for 47 yards and one score.

He had the Browns ready to score touchdowns twice, but Kenny Britt dropped a third-down pass and Duke Johnson fumbled. "I definitely ate healthy, did a good job of making sure I knew what I was putting in my body all the time".

"He's doing everything I'm asking him to do", said Jackson. The first two ended in turnovers, including Kizer's late throw over the middle that was picked off, and the third was a three-and-out. But if he struggles enough, it would not be surprising to see him pulled.

Kizer connected three times with Corey Coleman, including once for a 32-yard sideline route on which he rolled to his left and put it where only the single-covered Coleman could get it. For now, it looks like the Kizer Era is ready to begin for the Browns.

"He doesn't have the National Football League experience, but the only way you get that experience is by playing".

The Browns haven't decided if Kizer will play in their final preseason game, or if he will rest and wait to suit up for the regular season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 10. He's extremely bright. That's the quarterback of our defense, so he has a lot of input and say from snap to snap what our defense does, so he kind of kind of controls that, and that's a flawless fit for him.

Coaches like to say players make their biggest jump from their first to their second season.
