Unfortunately it wasn’t to be, after Orchard sustained a high ankle sprain that ultimately led to him missing most of 2016.
If that wasn’t bad enough, then imagine watching the Browns take Emmanuel Ogbah with the first pick in the second round last year, then turn around this year and take Myles Garrett number one overall. AND they switched from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3 defense where suddenly Orchard, Ogbah, and Garrett are all playing the same position. I would bet the last year has had his head spinning.
Despite some initial rumors about the Browns looking to trade Osweiler once they acquired him from the Houston Texans, they kept him through training camp and the preseason. He even looked liked he would be the Browns’ Week 1 starter at one point.
But then he only completed 12 of 24 passes for 67 yards, no touchdowns, and an interception in two preseason games.
Osweiler, 26, was the prized acquisition of the 2016 offseason for the Texans, signing a four-year, $72 million deal in free agency. The Texans — evidently impressed by Osweiler’s seven starts with the Denver Broncos — surrounded him with new weapons, but eventually benched the Cheap Jerseys Promo Code quarterback for Tom Savage. He finished with 15 touchdowns and 16 Cheap Jerseys Throwback interceptions.
For the Browns, the acquisition of Osweiler was a strategic way to spend the team’s more than $100 million in cap space. By trading for him, Cleveland added a second-round pick in the 2018 draft, continuing the front office’s quest to acquire as many assets as possible.
