Clausen and Tebow not on Browns' radar?

Written by Juan Cena on Monday, March 22 2010 and posted in SWRT

Don't expect Jimmy Clausen or Tim Tebow to be wearing a Browns jersey next season. Mike Holmgren isn't quite sold on them. Interviewed by the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Browns President said the team would draft a quarterback. However, he wasn't too keen on Clausen or Tebow.
In regards to Clausen, Holmgren said:

"I wish I liked him more," he said. "You know how you have a type of player that you like? It's not scientific. People like him a lot. He'll go high. But it would be hard for me [to take him]."


Translation: We've had enough of Notre Dame QB's thank you.
As for Tebow, while he was invited to pay a private visit with the Browns, Holmgren doesn't seem willing to use a projected second round draft pick on him.

..."There are areas of the football team that we really have to help -- the secondary, offensive line -- to get the team better. This year it would be pretty hard to use the second [round] pick to get a quarterback. It would be pretty hard for me.

"Next year might be easier. We've got [three picks in the third round and four in the fifth round] going for us. But I'd have to have another second-round pick [to take a quarterback in the second round]."


If if makes Browns' fans feel happier, there was no mention of Colt McCoy. So he might still be on the radar in Cleveland.
