The former Browns quarterback is now the No. 1 in San Francisco
When rookie second-round pick DeShone Kizer takes the field for the Browns on Sunday against the Steelers, he will be the team’s 27th different starting quarterback since 1999, when the team returned to the NFL. And out of those previous 26 starters, only one has a winning record as the Browns’ quarterback: Brian Hoyer went 10-6 during his two years in Cleveland. Naturally, the team chose not to re-sign him after the 2014 season and instead anointed Johnny Manziel as the franchise’s future.
The Browns released Manziel after the 2015 season and he’s been out of football ever since.
