Thaddeus Lewis Improving, Could Take Spot Of Colt McCoy Or Seneca Wallace

Cleveland Browns coach Pat Shurmur likes what he sees from fourth-string quarterback Thaddeus Lewis. Shurmur told 92.3 The Fan's Daryl Ruiter on Monday he's been impressed with how Lewis has handled his limited snaps this preseason.

"I think there’s value to that," Shurmur said. "There’s something to Thad that I think is worth developing."

Lewis has completed 5 of 8 passes for 90 yards in limited preseason snaps. Should he keep impressing Shurmur to the point that they keep him on the 53-man roster, it could mean the end for backup quarterbacks Colt McCoy and Seneca Wallace. Rookie Brandon Weeden has already been named the starter.

McCoy has already been the subject of trade rumors after losing his starting gig, but has said he wants to stay in Cleveland. A trade would open up a spot for Lewis, but if McCoy sticks around Wallace could be the odd man out.

The Browns host the Philadelphia Eagles Friday in their third preseason game.
