Hue Jackson on DeShone Kizer: 'it's the makings of a quarterback'

  • 1-0 Browns

The move comes two days after Kizer put on a strong performance against the New Orleans Saints in a 20-14 exhibition triumph at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland. It was a carryover effect from the game Thursday, and Jackson wasn't having any of it.

"Are you ready to name Kizer the starter for the next preseason game?"

Payton chose to rest starting quarterback Drew Brees and other prominent players, including running backs Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram. This is obviously the lesson to be learned here as Garrett continues to learn how to be a professional. I'm sure he's the first to tell there's so many things to clean up. "I think everybody is asking me that question about our quarterback and where we are". "I think we all know that".

Jackson said he's weighing all the options. "When it is the right time to make the decision that we feel is right to say, 'This is the quarterback of the Cleveland Browns for 2017, ' then we will make that decision". Jackson said after watching film of T Cam Erving, "it wasn't as bad as I think we all thought".

"He threw the ball down the field, made some plays with his arm, made some plays with his legs and stood in the pocket with poise", Jackson said. "Let's see it for what it was: The guy made some plays at the end to give us a chance to win, but there's still things he needs to do better".

Tottenham close in on £35 million move for Davinson Sanchez
Ajax's defensive rock Davinson Sanchez will be looking to build on an excellent first campaign in Amsterdam. The Eredivisie heavyweights have also offered Sanchez a new contract in an attempt to persuade him to stay.


Brock Osweiler started the game against the Saints. "I think there are some where our receivers could have gotten open a little bit better", Jackson said.

It wasn't all good for the No. 52 pick out of Notre Dame. He did not mention it specifically, but the three sacks where he held the ball too long on each were clearly on Jackson's mind.

Jackson emphasized it's simply "too soon" to just say Kizer is the guy.

Kizer said he was never surprised in his first National Football League action, got more comfortable as the game went on and was able to "let it rip". That makes it easier to go with a rookie quarterback if Jackson determines the time is right.

"There are throws he could have made (better)", Jackson said.
