The quarterback competition in Berea is over, and DeShone Kizer has been declared the victor.
He doesn't want it to spin again anytime soon.
Broncos coach Hue Jackson named Kizer the team's starting quarterback for the regular season.
"I feel a lot better moving around, being able to open up and run better and cover some space", he said. "But he's demonstrated that he's ready, so let's give him a chance to see if he can do it".
Jackson said Kizer, the No. 52 overall pick out of Notre Dame, "has the characteristics we covet" including the big arm and mobility. Jackson is familiar with the growing pains of breaking in a new quarterback - he did it past year with Kessler, who went 0-8 as a starter.
Kizer played the second half against the Saints and led the Browns to two touchdowns.
When he takes the field against the Steelers on September 10, he'll be the 27th quarterback to start a game for the Browns since 1999.
Marrone has not been pleased with what he has seen from his quarterbacks thus far in the preseason. ". I felt comfortable with him". The decision-making process may have broken Jackson's brain.
"Obviously, (Kizer) is a young man who is very talented", Jackson said.
