Browns | Josh McCown expects to start

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 10:44:47 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown is expecting to start after signing a three-year, $14 million deal last week that includes $6.25 million in guarantees and $6 million in incentives. McCown went just 1-10 as the starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year. McCown will compete with QBs Johnny Manziel and Connor Shaw this summer.

Fantasy Tip: As of right now, McCown looks like the most likely candidate to start for the Browns, with Manziel in a treatment facility for personal issues. If McCown wins the job in training camp, though he shouldn't be considered anything more than a weak QB2 for fantasy owners.

Browns | Josh McCown to work with Johnny Manziel

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 04:18:25 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown will work with QB Johnny Manziel to help him get used to the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: McCown is obviously not the long-term solution in Cleveland, but he provides a bit of stability. His vow to work with Manziel also means the Browns have some faith in their troubled quarterback. McCown is a backup QB in most fantasy leagues, while Manziel remains an intriguing project with little fantasy value at the moment.

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 14:33:06 -0800

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown has $6.25 million in guarantees in his three-year deal, and he'll make $5.25 million in 2015. The value of his deal is $14 million with the chance to make $20 million, according to a source that has seen the contract.

Fantasy Tip: McCown would be a low-end QB2 if he wins the starting job.

Browns | Three-year deal for Josh McCown

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 16:37:32 -0800

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown signed a three-year deal Friday, Feb. 27, according to a source. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed. McCown completed 184 of 327 passes for 2,206 yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014. McCown has a good relationship with offensive coordinator John DeFilippo from their days with the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: The signing of McCown likely means Brian Hoyer will move on and try to land a job elsewhere. McCown will likely compete for the starting quarterback job with Johnny Manziel in training camp. If McCown wins the job, he offers very little upside, despite having succeeded in the NFL before. He's nothing more than a weak QB2 selection if he's starting.

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 15:29:46 -0800

Free-agent QB Josh McCown (Buccaneers) has signed with the Cleveland Browns, according to his agent. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Browns | Browns in talks with Josh McCown

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 20:32:53 -0800

Free-agent QB Josh McCown (Buccaneers) has had contract talks with the Cleveland Browns in addition to the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: He would likely have a chance to compete for the starting job in Cleveland, but unless the Browns upgrade their weapons in the passing game significantly this offseason, McCown wouldn't have much fantasy value as the starter.

Browns | CLE interested in Mike Glennon?

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 18:19:28 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon is a player the Cleveland Browns are believed to be interested in, according to two league sources. There haven't been any formal offers, but if the Buccaneers are willing to deal Glennon he is a name worth watching.

Fantasy Tip: A move to Cleveland wouldn't do much for Glennon's fantasy appeal, as the team appears likely to lose TE Jordan Cameron to free agency while also dealing with the looming suspension of WR Josh Gordon. The receiver corps might actually be worse in Cleveland than Tampa Bay, and that's saying a lot.

Browns | Josh McCown visiting

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 14:26:43 -0800

Free-agent QB Josh McCown (Buccaneers) is visiting the Cleveland Browns Tuesday, Feb. 24, and Wednesday, Feb. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Even if McCown ends up signing with Cleveland and winning the starting job, he's still not worth starting on fantasy squads, especially when he would be without the services of suspended WR Josh Gordon.

Browns | President denies meddling in football affairs

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 09:17:37 -0800

Scheiner said he sometimes watches film with general manager Ray Farmer "to sit in there and try to learn and listen." "I like my role," Scheiner said. "I've got enough on my plate."

Browns | Brian Hoyer's status up in air

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 18:20:02 -0800

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer's agent met with the Browns in January, but it is uncertain when negotiations will relaunch.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns are meeting with draft prospects at the quarterback position, and of course they still have Johnny Manziel on the roster. It seems unlikely Hoyer will be brought back at this point, but that door certainly isn’t closed. Whomever is the starter in Cleveland is expected to be without Josh Gordon, and it is unclear if Jordan Cameron will be back. That makes the fantasy outlook of any Browns quarterback unappealing.

Browns | CLE meets with DeVante Parker

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 18:19:07 -0800

Louisville WR DeVante Parker had an informal meeting with the Cleveland Browns. He is considered a first-round prospect and good route runner.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns could use a receiver with explosive speed, especially on a roster devoid of much talent following the loss of Josh Gordon.

Browns | Jordan Cameron likely done in CLE

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 18:18:27 -0800

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent TE Jordan Cameron is not expected to be re-signed by the team.

Fantasy Tip: The tight end position is a spot very much in demand, and the draft isn't very deep. Cameron is likely to find a big payday, and he could be a nice rebound candidate for fantasy owners in the right system if he can stay healthy.
