Desperate for a new signal caller, the Cleveland Browns are looking to fill their need with a controversial quarterback.
The Browns had shown interest in finding a new quarterback for some time now. Weeden had not cut it and Hoyer could not do much help as he struggled to recover from injury.
Most people expected Cleveland to use pick number 4 on a franchise QB this season. Now, news out of Cleveland is confirmed that the Browns have signed ex-Falcon Michael Vick to a 5 year 20 million dollar deal.
Browns GM, Ray Farmer, has stated that they still may consider drafting a QB but Vick will help fill an immediate need.
Michael Vick, who has a past with Dog fighting, will now be part of the ‘dog pound’.
There have already been a small group of fans protesting on the streets of the stadium before the police had to kindly ask them to take it somewhere else.
Vick’s agent believes the fans will buy into the new Vick, and this could be a step in the right direction as Vick tries to sell his new dog lover image while Ray Farmer believes these are the types of moves the Browns must take to finally get back on top.
Today, several big names around the NFL have commented on the news.
