“The culture that’s been created here in this organization is incredible,” the quarterback told ClevelandBrowns.com. “The Haslam family has just truly created a first-class organization. They give us every resource to be successful.”
Osweiler is looking to rebound from a nightmarish 2016 season with the Houston Texans, and is attempting to do so on a team that hasn’t had a winning season since 2007. Even then, the Browns missed the playoffs, a place the organization hasn’t visited since 2002, making them a perennial laughingstock.
The 26-year-old is set to start the Browns’ preseason opener Thursday versus the New Orleans Saints, and appears to hold an upper hand in the team’s quarterback competition.
“I really can’t say enough great things about this city, about this organization and I’m so thankful I’m here and have this opportunity,” Osweiler added.
In 15 games with Houston last season, Osweiler threw for 2,956 yards with 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions, posting an ugly 72.2 passer rating along the way.
