Hue Jackson: RG3 "really good," but not ready to pick starter

Cleveland's quarterback battle will continue.

Nothing to see here.

For the second time in three weeks, Browns head coach Hue Jackson declined to name a starting quarterback, several outlets reported following the end of OTAs in Berea on Wednesday afternoon.

Jackson told the media today that former Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III has "made tremendous strides," but the coach wants to make the "right" choice, not a "fast" decision.

Before earning the starting gig, Griffin must first outlast Josh McCown, Cody Kessler, Austin Davis, and Connor Shaw. It's a motley crew, but Griffin can't rest on his laurels if he wants to please Jackson.

On May 15, Jackson told reporters it would be "great" to pick a starter after OTAs, but did not give a definitive timeline.

After a week-long break, the Browns will hold mandatory minicamp from June 7-9, according to the NFL. However, the process of choosing an opening day starter will likely extend into training camp.

"When the time is right, trust me, you guys will be the first to know," Jackson said.

Until then, we wait.
