Cleveland Browns have far more reasons to keep Josh McCown than to trade him.

Newsday's Bob Glauber likes Geno Smith as a backup. Newsday's Bob Glauber has come out with a ranking of the primary backup quarterbacks for each of the NFL's 32 teams. Geno Smith ranks 3rd on the list, behind only Cleveland's Josh McCown (finally something the Browns are the best in) and San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick. This seems like the proper place for the usual caveats. 1. Ranking backup quarterbacks seems like a bit of an exercise in futility. Backup quarterbacks are like armpits. Everyone has them, and they more or less all stink. 2. This isn't the only backup quarterback...

BEREA: It would be easy for a player in Josh McCown’s situation to sulk.He was the Browns’ starting quarterback for eight games last season until a broken collarbone sidelined him for the year in late November. Despite a 1-7 record, he played well, completing 63.7 percent of his passes with 12 touchdowns and four interceptions and posting a rating of 93.3.Yet he received just a few series with the first-team offense this offseason before free-agent acquisition Robert Griffin III was named the starting quarterback Monday.McCown, though, continued to show why he’s the ultimate teammate...

Robert Griffin III will be the Cleveland Browns' starting quarterback in 2016.
Niners Nation Aug 8, 2016
The Cleveland Browns named their starting quarterback, and the name is not a surprise. Now we wait for the 49ers to name theirs. The Cleveland Browns made what was expected official on Monday. Hue Jackson has named Robert Griffin III his starting quarterback. RG3 will get the start this Friday against the Green Bay Packers after beating out Josh McCown, Austin Davis, and rookie Cody Kessler. Head coach Hue Jackson’s comments about the competition do not specify what this means for the length of the season. The press release specifically mentions this Friday, and nothing else. Of course,...

Dallas has been forced into taking things slowly, which may pay big dividends down the road. After initially giving the impression that they were going to have a veteran quarterback added to the roster within a day or so, the Dallas Cowboys have apparently taken a deep breath and dialed things back. When Kellen Moore suffered a broken leg, it threw the plan at backup quarterback into chaos. Plan A was to sign free agent Nick Foles. That went out the window when he elected to go to the Kansas City Chiefs. A trade with the Cleveland Browns for Josh McCown is Plan B, but the indications are...

Here is the full report from this afternoon's practice out in Oxnard. Though Nick Foles has signed with the Chiefs and has been crossed off the Cowboys' list as a potential QB2 behind Tony Romo, the Cowboys seemed to have slowed their pursuit of a veteran arm for now. Josh McCown is certainly numero uno on their list but apparently, he's well-liked in Cleveland.

After Thursday’s practice, Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson was asked about the trade rumors surrounding backup quarterback Josh McCown and was somewhat dismissive of the thought: Hue Jackson says "nothing to it" re: Josh McCown trade rumors pic.twitter.com/uD7glGXc9E— Daryl Ruiter (@RuiterWrongFAN) August 4, 2016 That doesn’t mean something isn’t cooking behind-the-scenes or at least being flirted with.
