NFL Draft 2017: Browns reportedly inquired about Jimmy Garoppolo, A.J. McCarron

The Browns may have made it look like they didn't want a quarterback Thursday night, but rumors may be showing that not to be true.

The Cleveland Browns insist they're fine entering the 2017 season with a quarterback depth chart of Cody Kessler-Brock Osweiler-Kevin Hogan, but rumors swirling around the NFL suggest otherwise.

Sure, general manager Sashi Brown refuted the report that they were looking to trade for Kirk Cousins, but now ESPN reports that the Browns tried and failed to trade for Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garappolo on Thursday, and NFL Media says they asked about the Bengals' A.J. McCarron as well.

Now, it's unclear whether the buzz is true or not, but the fact that rumors about three separate quarterbacks from three separate teams popped up would lead any educated person to believe the Browns were looking to pick up a QB.

So while they may say they are comfortable with Cody Kessler as their starter, all indicators are clearly pointing in the other direction.

The Browns also have reportedly inquired about getting A.J. McCarron from the Cincinnati Bengals.
