The Cleveland Browns have made a decision that has the team’s front office in a little bit of a dilemma.
In recent days, they’ve been talking about the possibility of trading their franchise quarterback, and while Lombardi hasn’t made a major move, he’s certainly had to make some calls.
On Thursday, Lombardi and his front office made a series of calls about their quarterback situation, with the latest one centered around whether they’d consider trading for the next best player in the draft: the Kansas City Chiefs’ Jay Cutler.
And while Lombardin said the Chiefs’ interest in Cutler is legitimate, he didn’t rule it out completely, per a source with knowledge of the situation.
“It’s obviously something that we’ll continue to look at, but we don’t want to make a deal right now,” Lombardi said on NFL Network’s “NFL AM.”
“It’s something that has to be carefully evaluated and it’s something we’ve got to talk about with Jay.
I think that Jay is a really, really good quarterback, but I don’t think he’s the guy that we want to be dealing with right now.”
Lombardi went on to add that it would be “a little bit different” if Cutler were to be traded, but that the Browns aren’t “going to take any chances.”
“I think we’re going to keep looking at it,” Lombardini said.
“If Jay is going to be the best quarterback in the world and the best player we’ve ever had, then that’s the position that we’re gonna be in.
We’re not going to take chances with him, but there’s a lot of things that we have to evaluate.
It’s a little different.”
Langford is a veteran quarterback with an impressive resume, having won five Super Bowls and been named a Pro Bowl three times.
He was one of the first quarterbacks in NFL history to throw for 1,000 yards and run for 2,000 while with the Broncos.
