Brock On: Osweiler picked to start Browns' exhibition opener

Brock On: Osweiler picked to start Browns' exhibition opener

"A lot goes into our evaluation but it's always going to be about efficiently and effectively running the offense", Browns coach Hue Jackson said, according to the team's website. Rookie DeShone Kizer will be third-string after Cody Kessler comes in at two.

Brock Osweiler has risen from trade throw-in to preseason starter.

It's also possible Osweiler does well enough to at least give the Browns some options. "Sometimes you don't know when they're going to come, sometimes you do know when they're going to come". He started 14 games in Houston, turning the ball over 17 times (16 interceptions) and passing for only 15 touchdowns.

Osweiler was acquired by Cleveland in a trade with the Houston Texans in March.

Jackson emphasized before naming Osweiler that the starter against the Saints won't necessarily be the starter in the season opener against the Steelers on September 10. "I think the key is making the most of that opportunity, and if you do, then the rest will take care of itself".

Osweiler told Cleveland.com last week that he is a better quarterback now than the one who went 5-2 for the Denver Broncos in 2015. He later said it was an unexpected transaction, but the sixth-year quarterback took it all in stride.

Osweiler, the former Kalispell Flathead product who played college football at Arizona State, started training camp behind Cody Kessler on the Browns' depth chart. The starters generally only play a quarter in the first preseason game, and it's likely Kizer will end up playing more snaps than any other quarterback Thursday because he's a rookie and because Jackson needs to see as much of Kizer in game-type environments. He's 13-8 as a starter and won a playoff game with the Texans last season despite having a nightmarish season and getting benched late last season before returning when Tom Savage was injured.

"I know that for a fact, because I've never been coached so hard on my fundamentals until I got here, " Osweiler said.
