Browns sign another quarterback to keep pace with Watson, Mayfield and Brissett

The Browns reportedly took another step forward Friday afternoon, this time hiring another mobile quarterback ahead of their week-and-a-half offseason schedule:

In an interesting move late Friday afternoon, the Cleveland Browns added another quarterback to their roster. With Deshaun Watson acquired in the trade, Baker Mayfield still on the roster, and Jacoby Brissett signed in free agency, it's thought the team will wait until they move to Mayfield to bring in another four-pointer guard.

The Mayfield market may not be what the team expected, which could result in a trade being delayed. The team's offseason plans begin in a week and a half, and the addition of another quarterback will help Watson get back on the court. Even if Mayfield shows up, his recovery from shoulder surgery should limit him.

Here comes Joshua Dobbs, according to his agent:

The 6-foot-3 Dobbs was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He only played six games, in which he attempted just 17 passes.

The Steelers traded Dobbs to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a fifth-round pick in 2019 and took him back a year later.

With Watson out of the game after a year and Mayfield likely to be unavailable, if Brissett and Dobbs attend, he could get most of his pitching opportunities on April 19.

Dobbs, a versatile player at the University of Tennessee, pitched 438 times for over 2,100 yards and 32 touchdowns in his four years at Knoxville.

In Watson, Brissett and now Dobbs, the Browns have three mobile quarterbacks who will be the stars of the 2022 show once Mayfield's future is determined.
