Jimmy Haslam has made John Dorsey's top priority as general manager of the Cleveland Browns to find their quarterback.

"Let me say it this way: The Cleveland Browns are not going to be successful until we get a quarterback," Haslam said. "And we obviously have DeShone (Kizer) and two other quarterbacks on the roster. We're going to look at free agency and the draft. As it was mentioned earlier, we have a substantial amount of capital. We're going to do whatever it takes to find the quarterback we need to be successful.

"That will be John's No. 1 priority. We're going to do whatever it takes to get a QB."

The Browns have passed on opportunities to draft Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson in successive drafts.

"Let's sit down as a group [at the end of the season]," Dorsey said of Cleveland's QB quagmire. "This is a quarterback-driven league. We all know that and we all know, to succeed and to go a little bit farther and farther and farther, you need one of those guys. So I think it's an evaluation period that's going to take a little bit to put a plan together.

"The draft is four and a half months away. Free agency is three months away. We have ample time to make a plan here."
