The Cleveland Browns Need Jimmy Garoppolo

With the impending appeal of Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson’s 6-game suspension, Dan thinks the Browns should immediately begin trying to acquire Jimmy Garoppolo from the San Francisco 49ers. It seems likely Watson’s suspension will be increased to double-digit games, if not the entire season, and their current backup, Jacoby Brissett, is just that, a backup. Cleveland is a team built to win now, and Jimmy G. is the obvious solution. It’s a win-win-win. The Niners can unload Garoppolo, the Browns get a starting quarterback to fill Watson’s shoes, and Jimmy G. gets a chance to prove himself.

Dan Patrick: “If I’m the Browns and Deshaun (Watson) gets suspended, and it’s double-digit games, then I’d go get Jimmy Garoppolo... Jacoby Brissett is a backup quarterback, but this is a win-now team in Cleveland and I think that’s where you have to upgrade and go after Jimmy Garoppolo.
