Jay Cutler’s return to the NFL is the last straw for Colin Kaepernick’s chances to play in 2017.
In hindsight, someone should have seen this coming. Everyone should have known teams’ desire to find any quarterback not named Kaepernick would result in this: Cutler coming out of retirement.
The Redskins own website has a video of Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins boasting “about the weapons” the team has on offense.

“You don’t come back to the locker room and come get a bow-and-arrow and shoot somebody. Like, come on, man, let’s have fun. Let us do something to where we feel excited. We’re not out here shooting someone with a gun. I can understand that. It’s shooting a bow-and-arrow.
“An imaginary bow-and-arrow. Why is that violence? You saying the people that came before us were violent? That’s how I see it.”
So at this stage, Osweiler is getting the initial nod because he’s the clear — but unofficial — No. 3 guy behind second-year quarterback Cody Kessler and second-rounder Kizer. The Browns can afford Osweiler to take any lumps against Nike NFL Jerseys From China New Orleans’ mostly first-string defense because the Online Cheap Jerseys former Texan is in no way vital to their 2017 plans.
