It is clear that the Cleveland Browns have decided that Colt McCoy has not established himself as the QB of the future let alone a franchise QB. And any trade up by the Browns to get Robert Griffin III will be very costly in terms of draft picks. So the next question to be answered is what are the alternatives to a trade?
Clearly Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill is one QB the Browns will be considering to challenge Colt McCoy for the starting spot. While Griffin has played QB all of his life, Tannehill was a WR for his first two-and-a-half years at Texas A&M. He has only 20 starts at QB. He has climbed his way to the third QB on most draft charts behind Andrew Luck and Griffin.
