If the Cleveland Browns were to address the quarterback position, Matt Flynn would seem to make the most sense.
He has a tremendous amount of potential and could end up being a franchise guy for this struggling franchise. You are talking about an individual that has that rare combination of arm strength and accuracy. He is extremely strong on the intermediate routes, reads defenses extremely good and limits mistakes in the pocket.
With that said, Flynn is still somewhat of an unproven commodity. He has started a total of just two regular season games in four seasons with the Green Bay Packers, sitting behind Aaron Rodgers.
The benefits of bringing in Flynn would far outweigh the risks. Of course there are financial worries about signing an unproven quarterback to a long-term contract, but that is a risk that some teams just need to take. Flynn wouldn't cost the Browns a draft pick and could be that missing piece that they need on the offensive side of the ball.
Listen, the talent is there for the Browns. They have a great offensive line, solid defensive foundation and the coaching to succeed. They just need to get more talent at the skill positions.
Flynn would immediately be an upgrade over Colt McCoy. At least, in terms of talent and skill.
