QB3: Jake Browning

The only quarterback on the roster who fans might not be familiar with is Jake Browning. The Bengals added the Washington product to their practice squad in September and then re-signed him this past February as soon as the season wrapped up.

Browning spent all four years of his collegiate career at Washington, throwing for a total of 12,296 yards, 94 touchdowns, and 34 interceptions during that time. He finished sixth in Heisman voting during his sophomore season in 2016 after throwing for 3,430 yards, 43 touchdowns, and nine interceptions.

The hope is that we don’t see Browning during the course of the regular season unless the team is purposely sitting Burrow out. Otherwise, Browning being on the field over Burrow and Allen means that those guys either were injured (most likely the case for Burrow), inconsistent or maybe faced a suspension for whatever reason.

This isn’t anything against Browning. No one wants to see the third-string quarterback taking meaningful snaps in the regular season.
