Details: The report comes from Mary Kay Cabot (Cleveland.com), who indicates that Garoppolo will garner consideration if Watson’s suspension is increased past eight games.
- The NFL is seeking a minimum one-year suspension for Watson.
Brissett: Cay Kabot writes that the Browns are not necessarily comfortable with interim starter Jacoby Brissett past the six to eight game mark.
JG vs. JB: For his career, Garoppolo has a 33-14 record and a 68.3% completion rate. While Brissett has a 14-23 record and a 60.2% completion rate.
Cleared: Garoppolo’s shoulder has been medically cleared, so a trade could happen quickly if/when Watson’s punishment becomes more severe.
Fit: Garoppolo, who is an excellent game-manager, could thrive leading the Browns’ run-first offense. He’d also have some talented pass-catchers in Amari Cooper and David Njoku.
