Brock Osweiler hopes to be named the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns heading into this season.

"I want to be the starter of this team," Osweiler said.

Osweiler was a disappointment in his first season with the Houston Texans after signing a huge contract as a free agent.

It was initially believed that he would simply be released following a trade that sent him -- and Houston's second-round pick in 2018 -- to the Browns in what amounted to a complex and unusual salary dump.
