Now that the Cleveland Browns are officially out of the No. 2 overall pick and seemingly the Robert Griffin III sweepstakes with the Washington Redskins ultimately trading away their next few drafts to the St. Louis Rams, the Browns are now left to look elsewhere for their quarterback of the future.

Some may look at Cleveland's roster and believe that they don't need a quarterback of the future since they already have one in Colt McCoy. And, not to mention, many may feel McCoy is better than the quarterbacks Cleveland would have a legitimate shot at signing.

However, wouldn't Matt Flynn be a nice fit for the Browns?

Many believe so, and I happen to fall into that boat.

Aside from Peyton Manning, Flynn will be one of the most sought-after free-agent quarterbacks in recent memory. He's a diamond in the rough and could pan out to be a top-tier quarterback. 

Many may be a bit worrisome that Flynn could be a complete disaster much like how Kevin Kolb was this past season with the Arizona Cardinals, but that's a completely different story. 

Flynn would be joining an offense in Cleveland that is relatively similar to the Green Bay Packers' offense—the same offense in which Flynn has been backing up Aaron Rodgers

As of right now, I have to agree that Flynn's best destination for success is with the Browns. Cleveland currently has a ton of cap room and could certainly bring in some much-needed weapons for Flynn to succeed. I fully expect this situation to continue developing over the upcoming weeks.
