Alex Smith could provide veteran option for Browns at quarterback

New Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey concedes that the NFL is a quarterback-driven league.

In past years, the Browns have driven the position into a brick wall.

This offseason, the Browns have a rare chance to address the position for both the short and long term. Part of the solution is to not give up on DeShone Kizer and continue to work with him. But other pieces need to be added, with another young quarterback via the draft and with a veteran to ensure the young player(s) are not forced on the field before they are ready.

Adding a veteran is paramount. Bill Walsh once said that if a quarterback plays too soon, the experience can be traumatic and ruin him. That Kizer fought to the end last season is to his credit. But it does not erase the need to add a veteran.

Which means the dots are in place to bring Alex Smith to the Cleveland Browns.

Smith has been with the Chiefs the past five seasons. Hes won 50 games, started 76 and has never been part of a losing season. In five playoff games hes thrown for 1,250 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions with a 96.0 passer rating.
