06:29 PM ET 05.19 | The Cleveland Browns turned a few heads this week when they signed free agent quarterback Brian Hoyer, most recently cut by the Arizona Cardinals. The reason for the surprise is the fact that Cleveland already has two quarterbacks on roster expected to fight for the starting spot and Hoyer's existence on the roster complicates that. While Brandon Weeden is widely recognized as the strongest candidate to win the starting job, Hoyer is expected to make a significant run at the backup role and you shouldn't sleep on the idea of him beating our Jason Campbell in training camp. Hoyer has already made Brandon Weeden uncomfortable but he's more likely to take Campbell's job as backup and could even cost him a roster spot, as Grossi implied in his observation of the situation. No matter what the Browns do, it's a make-or-break year for whoever starts, as Rob Chudzinski and Norv Turner will want the best man for the job and he may not even be on the roster at the moment.

Not all of your customers would belong in bikinis, though.

Bikinis show a lot. Brian Hoyer never did when he was in New England.

When you're a QB for the Browns, you don't stay a backup for long.

Back-up who?

My guess is he could be the starter.......afterall this is Cleveland where talking about.

Damn, if I am going to win something it should be better than being a starter for the Browns
