There have been 30 starting quarterbacks in the last 21 years of the Cleveland Browns and it’s time to rank them all to find out who stands where.
The Cleveland Browns are known for two things, replacing head coaches and replacing quarterbacks. They shockingly go hand in hand. In 21 years, the team has had 30 starting quarterbacks, and surprise, surprise, the team has had varying levels of success at the position.
There are nine categories that the players fall into. First is the Walk of Shame category, a list of all the quarterbacks who only started a single game in their Browns during their tenure. Then there’s the Busted Backups category. Home to players who only had a one-year stint on the team as a backup or spot starter and weren’t brought in to win the position in training camp.
Next is the Failed Free Agents category, littered with one-and-done free agent acquisitions that weren’t supposed to be done so quickly. Guys that the team brought in to be starters for the team and didn’t even finish the year as such. After that, the Draft Dumpster. Home to all the failed draft picks that just couldn’t get it done.
They aren’t all terrible categories, however. We have the Badass Pickups, a grouping of guys who were really good in spots but weren’t full-time starters. Then there’s the They Tried category. A group of guys who could’ve found success if the team was better managed.
Lastly, the last three categories are represented by only one player each. What are they? Keep reading to find out.
