Browns’ front-office shake-up poses QB questions

Who is CLE’s QB?: After a major front-office overhaul on Tuesday, the Cleveland Browns are once again facing tough questions about the direction of the franchise. Among those questions is who will be the team’s quarterback of the future. The rumor mill has swirled around the idea that Johnny Manziel is player the Browns would love to anoint. But that was under the old regime. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, new general manager Ray Farmer was partial during his scouting process to Oregon QB Marcus Mariota. But with Mariota opting to remain in Eugene for one more season, it’s uncertain that Cleveland is willing to wait. One thing seems certain … it won’t be Brandon Weeden under center. The Browns’ 2012 first-round pick reportedly wants out.

Rodgers’ collarbone healing well: Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says the collarbone he broke during the season “feels good” and he expects to be ready to go once the season starts. That’s not a surprise considering Rodgers returned to lead Green Bay to a playoff-clinching win over the Chicago Bears in the regular-season finale. Just as interesting will be learning how Rodgers works with new quarterbacks coach (and former teammate) Alex Van Pelt, although there’s little to suggest the Packers signal-caller won’t once again be one of fantasy’s top offensive options.

Robinson looking for breakout: High expectations followed Adrien Robinson to New York when he was drafted by the Giants in 2012. To say he hasn’t lived up to them would be a criminal understatement. Robinson has played in just three games in his first two seasons and doesn’t even have so much as a target. That is why Robinson understands that 2014 is a make-or-break season for him. The Giants loved his athleticism coming out of the University of Cincinnati and he should get the chance to show it this preseason on a roster short on tight ends. Remember his name as one to watch.
