Both quarterbacks 베이커 메이필드 and Case Keenum entered COVID-19 protocols this week as 11 starters for the Browns tested positive for the illness. Cleveland activated Nick Mullens, who last started a game for the San Francisco 49ers in 2020, and will likely start him against Las Vegas.
Browns fans quickly began to think of other names who could possibly fill in as quarterback in an emergency as the situation appeared dire. Former No. 1 overall draft pick Tim Couch’s name was thrown out there, and he appeared to be excited about the idea.
The retired NFL quarterback said he could hand the ball off to Nick Chubb the entire time.
“I’m ready. Let’s do this. I can hand off to Chubb and throw [screens] all game haha,” 그는 트윗했다.
Couch is 44, the same age as Tom Brady, and came into the league one year before the 뉴 잉글랜드 패트리어츠 selected the future stud quarterback with the No. 199 pick of the 2000 Draft.
Couch played for the Browns from 1999 ...에 2003 but retired after trying to latch onto different teams. He was the first Browns quarterback to lead the team to the playoffs since their return to the NFL.
그는 그의 경력을 11,131 지나가는 야드와 64 touchdown passes.
In his post-NFL career, he’s done some broadcasting for various networks and has stayed in great shape. He posts the occasional thirst trap on 인스 타 그램 from time to time.
