Browns Will Study Quarterback Landry Jones

Following the Tuesday signing of quarterback Jason Campbell, a source said on Wednesday that the Browns won't rule out trading backup Colt McCoy.

Browns CEO Joe Banner said at the combine that a quarterback is "not the focus" with the team's first-round pick, but the club continues to do their due diligence. They'll conduct a private workout with West Virginia's Geno Smith and will bring Arizona dual-threat passer Matt Scott for a pre-draft visit. They're also studying Oklahoma's Landry Jones, Florida State's E.J. Manuel and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib.

Some are projected to go in the second round, and the Browns have no second-round pick this year. With the signing of Campbell, 31, to press Weeden, a source said he expected McCoy to be released or traded soon. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
