Browns vs. Saints, NFL Preseason Week 1: Position Battles to Watch

The Cleveland Browns take on the New Orleans Saints on Thursday for their first game of the preseason; at this time last year, we were getting ready to evaluate QB Robert Griffin III .

On defense, the following players are not expected to play:DT Caleb Brantley (finger)CB Marcus Burley (face laceration)S Ed Reynolds (knee)

At this point, the way things have gone for QB Cody Kessler — being demoted, still not having the necessary arm strength, and two pick sixes in recent practices — indicate that the starting quarterback job comes down to Brock Osweiler and DeShone Kizer .

I’m referring to the likes of Jamie Meder , Trevon Coley , Xavier Cooper , Larry Ogunjobi , Carl Nassib , Cam Johnson , Tyrone Holmes , and Nate Orchard .

It’s all fun-and-good to think, “Oh, Derrick Kindred and Ibraheim Campbell will be fine at the starting safety spots.” But I can’t forget how awful that tandem was during the first half of last season, and it was largely because of their pass coverage.
