3. Jeff Driskel

Speaking of Driskel, his play could keep him from returning next season as well.

The 30-year-old drew the start in Week 18 against a Cincinnati Bengals team that was already eliminated from the playoffs, yet he struggled mightily. Driskel managed just 13 completions on 26 attempts for 166 yards, 2 TDs and 2 INTs.

Driskel was then demoted to QB3 for Cleveland's Wild Card contest and made inactive, a sign that his Bengals performance didn't do much to impress the staff.

With DTR on board, the Browns have a young signal-caller who deserves their full attention as he looks to develop. It's better spending time on him, than wasting a roster spot on retreads with little upside like Driskel and Walker.
