The Cleveland Browns may have traded a massive haul for Deshaun Watson but their quarterback situation is still uncertain. The former Houston Texans QB is expected to miss a significant time.

As first reported by Jeremy Fowler of ESPN and later confirmed by Mary Kay Cabot of, the Browns are bringing in A.J. McCarron and Josh Rosen for more depth as they brace for a lengthy Watson suspension.

With Jacoby Brissett set to be Watson's backup and QB1 for at least this season, the Browns could use some more reliable options behind him. Although that may be tough to do in free agency, Cleveland is exhausting all its options. A trade for Jimmy Garoppolo could be in play but for right now, the Browns are seeing what they have available in the open market.

Rosen has bounced from team to team ever since being drafted 10th overall by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2018 NFL Draft. The 25-year-old has also played for the Miami Dolphins in the 2019 season and the Atlanta Falcons last season.

McCarron was Watson's backup on the Texans in 2019 and 2020. The 31-year-old spent the first three seasons of his career with the Cincinnati Bengals, one with the then-Oakland Raiders and spent last season with the Falcons as well, though he appeared in no games.

As the possibility remains of Watson getting suspended for at least one full season or possibly only half of it, the Browns will have to find a way to provide decent enough quarterback play this season.
