DeShone Kizer earns Browns starting quarterback post

UNDATED (AP) — Rookie DeShone Kizer is Cleveland’s new starting quarterback.

Coach Hue Jackson has elected to go with Kizer, a second-round pick from Notre Dame, over veterans Brock Osweiler and Cody Kessler. Kizer has been the most consistent of the three during training camp and led the Browns to three touchdowns during his two exhibition appearances.

Jackson said Kizer will start Saturday’s exhibition in Tampa Bay and “is certainly positioning himself well to earn the starting job heading into the regular season.”

Unless he stumbles against the Buccaneers, Kizer will be the 27th different quarterback to start for the Browns since 1999. The big-armed 21-year-old has shown no signs of being intimidated by the jump to the pros after making 23 starts in two seasons for the Fighting Irish.

DeShone Kizer was the only bright spot on the ND team that lost 8 games last year. Lets hope for his sake that history does not repeat itself in Cleveland. Way to go DeShone!
