Browns reportedly "moving forward" with Robert Griffin III

Cleveland looks to find stability at quarterback in the former phenom.

The quarterback-less Cleveland Browns have been associated with a plethora of signal callers this offseason. We've seen names come and go, but it seems as if one quarterback has stuck around.

Addressing Browns' media members assembled at the annual NFL meeting today, Browns Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown made it clear that Robert Griffin III was the team's man at quarterback. Brown stated that the Browns were moving forward on potentially signing Griffin, and that the team is taking the process slowly but surely. In addition, Brown also shot down the rumors of Colin Kaepernick coming to Cleveland. Brown said that Cleveland's interest in the San Francisco quarterback was overblown and that the Browns "don't anticipate being engaged with San Francisco."

So assuming the Browns sign Robert Griffin, which seems like the most likely outcome at this point, does that mean that they will pass up a quarterback in the draft? With Carson Wentz and Jared Goff both on the board, the Browns have their best chance to grab a franchise quarterback in years, and it seems logical for them to take one of the two with no long-term solution at quarterback. For the Ravens, this is certainly the best situation to unfold, since that means one more non-quarterback will be available for Baltimore to take.

But then again. This is the Browns we are talking about. With a rookie GM leading the team's draft, just about anything could happen.
