He could start Kizer against the Giants but reserve the right to go back to Brock Osweiler for the start of the regular season. "It's the raising of a quarterback, and I think that takes time". Cody Kessler followed with the backups.
Part of what Jackson is examining is how to handle this practice time, which could provide an excellent opportunity for Kizer to get more reps with the first team against the first team.
"I think there's a process to all of this", Jackson said on a conference call on Friday, the day after the Browns had beaten the New Orleans Saints in the preseason opener. I don't think you do things out of a knee-jerk reaction. "I mean, I don't feel very comfortable", Jackson said. "You just get to throw whatever you want to because he has got such great arm talent".More news: Trump to declare opioid crisis a national emergency
Playing time in the preseason isn't important for quarterbacks on almost any other National Football League team, but it is for the Browns quarterbacks who are in the midst of an open competition.
Kizer will be tested again a week from Monday night on August 21 on national TV against the New York Giants, and the expectation is that Kizer will take another step forward. So we're not there yet.
Kizer created a buzz with his second half, when he completed two passes of at least 45 yards, one for the game-winning touchdown with 1:52 left.
"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.More news: Rauner urges lawmakers to let his school-funding veto stand
The constant focus was on the quarterback position, so Hue Jackson chose to bring some stability by naming Cody Kessler as the top quarterback heading into training camp.
"If that is the decision that we make, then I wouldn't have any hesitation", he said. I'm sure he's the first to tell there's so many things to clean up.
Kizer was sacked three times and hung onto the ball too long on a couple of other plays. For those Kessler supporters, he was also the third option a year ago, and we saw how quickly he got to start a game. He threw the fade ball to Kenny Britt. That was obvious on the victor to Payton, when Kizer picked the go route - Jackson gave him two options - and lofted a flawless strike. "And he knows it", Lee said of the rookie from Notre Dame.
A gray cinder block, the kind that can be found on the foundation of any home, has become an important teaching tool for the Browns as they prepare rookie DeShone Kizer to someday be their starting quarterback.More news: Mother of Suspect Who Allegedly Plowed Into Charlottesville Protesters Speaks Out
The Browns invested in the offensive line and defense in the offseason. "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".
