Philadelphia radio host Howard Eskin tweeted Friday afternoon that veteran quarterback A.J. Feeley could be headed to the Browns. Feeley is a former Eagles, Rams, and Dolphins quarterback who worked with Browns head coach Pat Shurmur when the two were in Philadelphia. Feeley would serve as a back-up to starter Brandon Weeden, and could take Colt McCoy's position on the roster.
McCoy appeared safe after news of Seneca Wallace's waiver emerged on Friday. But Feeley's relationship with Shurmur could make him a potential target for the Browns and Tom Heckert. Feeley played in five games with the Rams last season, completing 53 of 97 attempts with one touchdown and two interceptions.
Tony Grossi of WKNR reports that he's been told Feeley doesn't want to play anymore, while The Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports the rumor is untrue. Eskin is the same Philadelphia personality who first tweeted rumors back in early June that the Browns were for sale, and Joe Banner may be involved in the purchasing group.
