They'll cut him after the draft.After I heard about Wallace re-signing, I wondered where Jake (Cleveland Jake) stood in the long line of awfulness at QB for the Browns since 1999. I thought about what the list might be, how they would be ordered, and it really is an impossibility because just when you think you've got the worst of them all, then you remember someone else. It's sickening.

At the end of his career, every little stove top fire he had ended up burning the whole damn house down. I agree with SD, he was a good mental mentor for Colt. He still could teach the kid what he needed to know and where to get it from. He just can't tow the line any more. Wallace may not be the best mentor but he will be able to show Colt what they want by doing it. Wallace will keep Colt on his toes with a slight warming of the neck from his breath.
