Cleveland Browns

are fortifying their quarterback depth ahead of the playoffs by signing veteran quarterback

Jeff Driskel

to the active roster, according to reports from multiple sources on Friday.
Driskel, who has been part of the practice squad for the

Arizona Cardinals

, will join the Browns (11-5) during a season marked by quarterback challenges due to injuries.

The Browns found stability in former Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Flacco, who assumed the starting role five games ago and guided the team to a coveted playoff berth.

The quarterback carousel for the Browns began with

Deshaun Watson

at the helm, but his season was cut short after just six games due to a season-ending shoulder surgery. Rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson was recently placed on injured reserve with a hip injury, leaving PJ Walker as the sole backup to Flacco.

Jeff Driskel, 30, brings NFL experience, having played in 23 games and starting nine during his career. His previous stints include the Cincinnati Bengals (2018), Detroit Lions (2019), Denver Broncos (2020), and Houston Texans (2021-22). While Driskel’s starting record stands at 1-9, he has completed 59.2 percent of his pass attempts for 2,228 yards, contributing 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
