Big fan of Cleveland football? Then check out this list of Cleveland Browns quarterbacks with photos! It includes every starting quarterback from throughout Cleveland Browns history, including current quarterbacks and past ones. This roster contains many American football greats, players in the game with the highest ratings in the NFL. The QB is the leader of the offensive team, the one who often calls the plays.
