Deshaun Watson Starting Preseason Game Is Surprising

The Cleveland Browns are planning to start suspended QB Deshaun Watson in their preseason game Friday night and Dan just doesn’t see the logic behind the decision. Watson will be suspended at least 6 games, if not the entire season, and they need to get Jacoby Brissett ready to start week 1 against the Panthers. What’s the point of giving first-team reps to a guy who won’t be playing anytime soon?

Dan Patrick: “Jacoby Brissett is the guy I got to get ready for that opening game against Carolina. And I probably got to get him ready for the entire season. So, the fact that Deshaun Watson is going to start Friday night is surprising...I’m just not sure the logic of that, of putting him out there.”
