When the Cleveland Browns traded for Brock Osweiler, it was widely assumed they made the move to acquire draft picks from the Houston Texans and because they had ample cap space.

The Browns were expected to either trade Osweiler or release him, and they would either draft a QB or trade for a veteran like Jimmy Garoppolo.

While those still might be options for the Browns, they are now expected to keep Osweiler.

Browns executive vice president Sashi Brown said he expects Osweiler to compete for the starting job entering next season.

Osweiler is behind Cody Kessler now, and the team will more than likely add another QB to the mix either in the draft or via trade.

The Browns have two first-round picks, including the No. 1 overall pick and the No. 12 pick.

Most mock drafts have the Browns selecting Myles Garrett at No. 1, but the jury is out with what they’ll do at No. 12.

Osweiler struggled during his one season with the Texans. He threw for 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions while only completing 59 percent of his passes.
