Joel Bitonio: Cleveland Browns’ QB battle will be ‘hot’

The Browns jerseys used an outrageous six different quarterbacks last season.

Cleveland cheap

Starting guard believes a dash of consistency under center is the missing ingredient for Cleveland.

“When you have continuity at quarterback, everything runs smoother,” Bitonio told The Reynolds Report. “The competition is going to be hot in training camp.”

Cleveland’s signal-caller tussle will pit second-year arm against second-rounder and veteran jersey.

It’s possible none of them are the answer, but all three have an advantage over last year’s gaggle of passers: A rebuilt offensive line that has the potential to be one of the AFC’s best. It brings the team closer to coach ’s vision of a club that can slash teams on the ground and — someday, if they find their guy — through the air.

After the Browns started more rookies than any franchise in the league last season, Bitonio sees a more experienced, confident roster — one ready to data-wipe 2016’s inglorious 1-15 car crash.

“I don’t think we’re going to go out there spewing about how we’re going to prove all this stuff. I think it is a quiet confidence because we know the work we’re going to put in,” Bitonio said.

“To get the opportunity to go there and kind of be the guy would be special, but like I said, they’re going to do what’s best for the franchise.”

Allen impressed scouts with his weigh-in earlier Tuesday, measuring just under 6-foot-5 (6-4 7/8) and 237 pounds, with a hand size of 10 1/8 inches. His hands measured tied for the biggest of the Senior Bowl quarterbacks.

However, his lackluster performance in three games against Power Five competition has scouts apprehensive. In NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah’s first of many mock drafts, Allen is the third quarterback selected, dropping past USC’s Sam Darnold (first, CLE) and UCLA’s Josh Rosen (sixth, NYJ) to the Miami Dolphins with the 11th pick. (It was serendiptious that Allen divulged that he likes to play with Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill on Madden.)

Allen told reporters he wasn’t bothered by the hype around Darnold and Rosen leaving him in the background, adding that he has a good relationship with Darnold and is bunking with him in Mobile.


“I don’t think there’s any real rush at this point,” he said. “Obviously, they want to know before the draft and free agency, so that if they have to make different plans if I’m not going to be there, they want to know about it. I told them I’ll make a decision when I’m ready and let them know and give them as much time as I possibly browns jerseys 2018 can.”

Cleveland has already attempted to lure him back with a pay raise, but Thomas’ tone suggests he might be leaning toward walking away.

The tackle recently launched a podcast with former teammate , who retired in 2017, titled the Thomahawk Show, via Uninterrupted. During one of its earliest episodes, the two discussed Cleveland’s release of cornerback Joe Haden.

“This year, the Browns made a lot of moves, trading guys, releasing guys,” Thomas said on the podcast, “but in the 2017 season, I think that move, when they cut Joe Haden jersey, was probably the most deflating move for the coaching staff and for the players in that locker room, especially all those young guys that we had, they all looked up to Joe, they loved Joe, everyone loved him. And we’re thinking ‘we cut this guy and we had $70 million in cap space? What is that trying to say about the Browns jerseys season?'”

The season ended without a win and without Thomas.  very well could begin 2018 in the same fashion.
