The scenario laid out by King will grab the attention of Browns fans, but it sounds like fantasy at this point.
Haslam recently vowed to create a quarterback competition for Brandon Weeden, though he also said, “I don't think you'll see us make any big, splashy, high-priced moves because I think we've said all along we're going to build through the draft.”
And even if Flacco becomes available, there's no guarantee he would want to play for the Browns.
The Browns, though, certainly are expected to acquire a quarterback in the offseason via free agency, which begins March 12, the draft, which runs April 25-27, or a trade.
Alex Smith of the San Francisco 49ers and Ryan Mallett of the New England Patriots have been linked to Cleveland. Chase Daniel of the New Orleans Saints and Brian Hoyer of the Cardinals have recently been mentioned by Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com as logical fits for the Browns.
As for Michael Vick, he can be crossed off the list of quarterback possibilities for the Browns. The Philadelphia Eagles re-signed Vick to a one-year deal worth a maximum of $10 million, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday.
When all the dust settles, it would be surprising if Flacco doesn't stay put, too.
