QB competition in Cleveland to begin Saturday Browns to name starting QB by 3rd preseason game By: Mike Krueger | Jul 22 2014, 7:00 am
Q: So the target date for naming a starter is still up in the air?
A: ďYeah, itís definitely still up in the air. It could be sooner, and thatís something weíre going to discuss in that meeting. Itíll be before the third preseason game. I just donít have a date. I donít know if Iíll set a date and kind of paint ourselves into a date, but it will be sooner than the third preseason game.Ē

FFToday's Take:Browns coach Mike Pettine wants to have his starting QB named before the most important preseason game. Brian Hoyer appears to be the frontrunner at the moment but Johnny Manziel has more than a fighting chance to win the job during camp. Without Josh Gordon in the mix, its hard to envision either one of these QBs as more than a backup for your fantasy team.
