With training camp in Berea revving up to top gear, we finish off our Browns position previews with the most important position, the quarterback position. Over the last many weeks, I have looked at all of the positions of the 2015 Cleveland Browns, except for the signal caller. This group is always the most talked
The real question about Johnny Manziel is whether he’s even the best backup quarterback the Cleveland Browns have. It’s a conundrum for the Browns as they look for their best and most strategically advantageous 53-man roster. The only thing worse than a first-round quarterback who isn’t ready to start is a first round quarterback who isn’t even
The Browns have been quiet for much of the free agency period, but today they announced that they are bringing back quarterback Thaddeus Lewis. According to Yahoo Sports’ Rand Getlin, Lewis signed a one year contract with the Browns. His addition continues the overhaul in the quarterback room for the Browns. Earlier this offseason, the Browns
A Pro Football Talk report surfaced a few hours ago that the Browns will release Thaddeus Lewis. That report was confirmed by several members of the local media. Lewis started one game for the Browns last year, starting against the Steelers in the final week of the season. He wasn’t awful, completing 22 of 32
Adam Schefter is reporting (by way of PFT for us) that former Browns QB Seneca Wallace is going to work out for the Oakland Raiders. It just goes to show that there are at least nine lives available for anyone who can stand under center in the NFL. It also goes to show that the
The Cleveland Browns have been committal about being non-committal about their quarterback situation. From Rob Chudzinski to Michael Lombardi and yesterday Norv Turner the Browns have been steadfast in putting barely a single word on the record that leads anyone to believe that Weeden is first on the depth chart right this very second. Even
The Browns and Steelers is usually a much-anticipated matchup, but this time it seemed as if the end of the game was the most intriguing part. With the end of the game comes the end of the charade that Pat Shurmur and GM Tom Heckert will keep their jobs. Gone is the last bit of
In case you missed it and want to follow along as the NFL offices levy fines against the notorious James Harrison, here is his all-too-typical hit on Browns quarterback Thaddeus Lewis. [Related: Cabot: Shurmur, Heckert “Expected To Be Fired” Following Pittsburgh Game]
Thaddeus Lewis makes start number one. No Weeden, no McCoy, no Richardson, no Brown, etc. Phil’s a Pro Bowler! Shurmur and Heckert’s last dance. There’s no shortage of questions, and the Browns head into Heinz Field looking to give Pittsburgh a losing season and finish 6-10. Get your commenting and Steeler hatred on below!

So who is the backup for the backup? As Scott told us today, Thad Lewis, recently called up from the practice squad, got the first team reps today in Berea. That’s right. Not Brandon Weeden with a bum shoulder. Not Colt McCoy, also with a bum shoulder. Thaddeus Lewis. Just a reminder, Lewis is a
Taddeus Lewis could go from playing with the practice squad to starting in an NFL game in just a week’s time. With shoulder injuries being sustained by both Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy, it was the recently added Lewis who is taking first-team snaps during practice heading into the Browns’ Week 17 tilt against the Pittsburgh
Add Mohamed Massaquoi to the list of Cleveland Browns players that might have seen his last action as a member of the team. Mohamed Massaquoi is on injured reserve and the Browns signed Thaddeus Lewis from the practice squad Monday night. According to the Browns’ news release, Massaquoi started five of nine games in which he
As I’ve been doing for years, The Boots are my way to assign Boot Up or Boot Downs to various items in the sports world. As a reminder, I got the nickname “Boot” from my older brothers when I was young, and thus, I continue to use this segment as my personal sports writing payback.
Whudda thunk it? Fourth-string QB Thaddeus Lewis led the Browns on two late scoring drives to give the good guys a preseason-opening 19-17 victory over the Detroit Lions in the Great Lakes Classic. As Craig wrote already this evening, the starters were underwhelming early but the offense roared back in the second half with 16
