Browns sign QBs Vince Young, Tyler Thigpen

Who wants to be the Browns' starting quarterback? By the end of next week's draft, at least 5 men -- and maybe more -- will be given a shot to prove what they can do behind center. Two of those players were signed today by Cleveland: Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen. Neither player played in the league last year.

Fantasy Analysis:

Thigpen is a camp arm at best. His best days came and went in 2008 with the Chiefs. Young is the reason why this is even close to be considered news. He has considerable name value, and we all remember what type of a playmaker he was early in his NFL career, seven to eight years. Young turns 31 later this month and has been off the fantasy radar since 2010. But these guys at least have a chance to gain a job. The Browns' other quarterbacks are Brian Hoyer @bhoyer8, Alex Tanney, and whichever quarterback they take during the draft. This competition will most likely come down to Hoyer versus the rookie.
