Browns Claim QB Kellen Mond Off Waivers NFL Fans Make Jokes

Since joining the NFL in 1950, the Browns have had 59 different quarterbacks start games for them. However, since being re-added to the NFL in 1999 after the team moved to Baltimore, the Browns have started 32 different players at quarterback.

This year the Browns will add to that number when any of their four current quarterbacks, Deshaun Watson, Jacoby Brissett, Josh Dobbs, and Kellen Mond, take the field to start a game.

Mond is the latest addition to the Browns’ endless list of quarterbacks after being claimed on waivers on Wednesday after being cut by the Vikings.

Minnesota drafted Mond in the third round (66th overall) of the 2021 NFL Draft after an excellent career at Texas A&M.

Mond ended his college career as just one of three SEC quarterbacks to pass for over 9,000 yards and rush for over 1,500 yards (Tim Tebow and Dak Prescott are the other two).

Unfortunately, that success in college hasn’t translated in the NFL, as he has played in just one game, throwing just three passes for the Vikings, and getting absolutely skewered by his head coach Mike Zimmer.

This play pretty much sums up Kellen Mond’s NFL experience thus far.

Which is why NFL fans just couldn’t help themselves when they learned the news about the Cleveland Browns picking him up on waivers.

Poor Johnny Football.

Browns fans also expressed surprise (and sadness) at the report.

Have to feel for the guy whose spot Mond will be taking on the Browns’ roster.

During one 20 year stretch from 1999 to 2018, the Browns only had one quarterback start all 16 games in a season (Tim Couch in 2001). 2022 will be no different with Deshaun Watson guaranteed to miss at least 11 games.

It wasn’t always that way.

The Browns used to be actually be quite good at the quarterback position.

From 1946 to 1995, seven quarterbacks, Otto Graham, Milt Plum, Frank Ryan, Mike Phipps, Brian Sipe, Bernie Kosar, and Vinny Testaverde, started 76 percent of all games (532 out of 704) at QB for the Browns over 42 different seasons.

Since then, Cleveland has started Tim Couch, Ty Detmer, Doug Pederson, Spergon Wynn, Kelly Holcomb, Jeff Garcia, Luke McCown, Trent Dilfer, Charlie Frye, Derek Anderson, Brady Quinn, Ken Dorsey, Bruce Gradkowski, Colt McCoy, Jake Delhomme, Seneca Wallace, Brandon Weeden, Thad Lewis, Jason Campbell, Brian Hoyer, Johnny Manziel, Connor Shaw, Josh McCown, Austin Davis, Cody Kessler, Robert Griffin III, DeShone Kizer, Kevin Hogan, Tyrod Taylor, Baker Mayfield, Case Keenum, and Nick Mullens at quarterback.

For those scoring at home (and if you are, congratulations), that’s 32 starting quarterbacks over 22 seasons (369 games; record: 120-248-1).
