Browns executive VP of football operations Sashi Brown told a pack of local beat reporters on Monday at the Annual League Meeting that the team is not actively engaged in talks with the 49ers"and, at this point, we don't anticipate being engaged with San Francisco," per Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer.
With Kaepernick fading out of the picture, the team has shifted its focus to Griffin, with Brown describing the club as doing its due diligence in an effort to possibly sign the former Redskins passer.
The Browns appear serious about reshaping their quarterback room from top to bottom, looking for a veteran to pair with whoever the team picks at No. 2. We expect that to be a signal-caller -- Cal's Jared Goff or North Dakota State's Carson Wentz -- but Jackson wouldn't promise that, either, saying Sunday that "we may draft a quarterback and we may not."
