Browns officially name Kevin Hogan starter over DeShone Kizer

Browns officially name Kevin Hogan starter over DeShone Kizer

The Browns are changing QBs.

That's typically a sign of a looming quarterback change, and Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer has reported Hogan will make his first National Football League start Sunday against the Houston Texans. "We've liked what Kevin has been able to do within our offense when he's been in there and he will start on Sunday because that's what we feel is best for our team at this point in time".

The more things change, the more Cleveland stays the same.

"I've made the decision to start Kevin this week", the statement reads. With Kizer at quarterback in the game, Cleveland had 175 total yards and two red-zone turnovers as he completed 8 of 17 for 87 yards with an interception. The second-round pick from Notre Dame has showed promise, but he's been indecisive and inaccurate, and Jackson thinks the next step is for him to watch from the sideline and learn.

But if winning is all that matters, is Hogan - who spent much of the team's training camp as its fourth-string quarterback - really the best answer? Deshaun Watson's meteoric rise continues for the Texans, but the Browns have pulled the plug on DeShone Kizer.

The catch: parents will be notified of each purchase via text or email, and will, by default, have to approve or deny each one. Amazon says the service is for 13 to 17-year-olds, but Carr told the WSJ they're open to kids of all ages using the service.

Although Hogan wasn't viewed as a legitimate threat to start, Jackson maintains the former fifth-round pick from Stanford was always in the mix. "I watched him play previous year for this football team". "Kevin has always been right there".

Kizer clearly appeared overwhelmed in Cleveland's loss to the New York Jets and at this point, it would probably be better for him to sit and learn.

Hogan finished 16 of 19 for 194 yards.

Kizer has proved inconsistent in his first five games in the pro ranks, throwing three touchdown passes and nine interceptions with a completion percentage only just over 50.
