LeBron James: 'Deshaun Watson should be a Brown'

"I think Deshaun Watson should be a Brown", James said via Cleveland.com, elaborating on his criticism of Jackson. Nobody was considering Watson as a top-five pick prior to the draft except his college coach, Dabo Swinney, who compared Watson to National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan during the draft process. "Doesn't mean that Myles Garrett isn't going to be a great football player". After selecting Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick, the Browns had the opportunity to select Watson with the No. 12 pick they owned from the Philadelphia Eagles. "Deshaun Watson should have been our quarterback".

The ugly part for the Browns - and something that James didn't mention - is that they actually could have had both Garrett AND Watson.

It's possible that James didn't mention this fact because he's actually A GIANT COWBOYS FAN who only roots for the Browns in his spare time, and as we all know, he's not a guy who has a lot of spare time. But Deshaun Watson should've been our quarterback.

To LeBron's point: Just about every quarterback (or player, for that matter) the Browns touch turns to crap.

Tim Couch, Charlie Frye, Colt McCoy, Brady Quinn, Brandon Weeden, Johnny Manziel and Cody Kessler were all selected by the Browns in the top three rounds, but never panned out in Cleveland.

Prior to suffering a torn ACL in practice earlier this month, Watson had been the front-runner to win the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year award, amassing 1,699 yards and a league-high 19 touchdowns in seven games.

That being said, the Browns better figure out something soon because their sad QB jersey is running out of space.
