Tyler Thigpen: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Thigpen has signed a one-year contract with the Browns, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Browns also added Vince Young to their QB mix Thursday, joining Brian Hoyer and Alex Tanney. The team may also draft a signal-caller next week, with Thigpen thus presumably in line to jostle for backup slotting as the 2014 season approaches.
Thigpen, serving as the backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick, only threw five passes in mop-up duty during the 2012 season. He was 3-of-5 for 30 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions.

Coach Chan Gailey says it's unlikely Thigpen's teammate Tarvaris Jackson will move up from the number three role this season, BuffaloBills.com reports. "It would be very tough for Tarvaris to challenge for that spot this year because of limited reps (in practice)," said Gailey.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2012

Coach Chan Gailey pretty much locked Thigpen's teammate Brad Smith into the No. 3 quarterback role this season. That means Thigpen will be battling Vince Young all summer for the role of main backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick. There's a good chance the loser of that battle ends up getting cut.

2011

Thigpen was signed as a free agent and is the clear-cut backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick. There's little value there, but if Fitz ever did get hurt, Thigpen might be worth a waiver-wire pickup in deeper leagues. He's very familiar with Chan Gailey's fantasy friendly offense and previously threw 18 touchdowns in it in just 11 starts. Like Fitzpatrick, he's a good runner out of the pocket as well.

2010

Thigpen impressed the Dolphins in limited playing time last season, enough so that he was named the backup quarterback to Chad Henne. The problem is the Dolphins have four quarterbacks they deem worthy of a roster spot and since traditional wisdom states that you should only carry three, Thigpen could be the subject of many trade rumors this season.

2009

Thigpen surprisingly became a very effective fantasy quarterback in 2008, using his excellent mobility to make plays on the run, both through the air and as a runner. The Chiefs have not officially named their starting quarterback, but itís obvious that Matt Cassel will be awarded the position eventually. Thigpen would likely need an injury to Cassel to be fantasy-relevant in 2009, but if such a situation occurred, he would become a hot free agent pickup immediately.

2008

Thigpen took most of the second-team snaps ahead of Damon Huard in minicamps and could emerge as Kansas Cityís top backup. Heís poised beyond his years and boasts a strong arm, so the Chiefs may elect to give him a look if Brodie Croyle is removed due to injury or ineffectiveness.

2007

Thigpen is a project with all of the physical tools to be an NFL quarterback, but he needs to step up to the level of competition since playing in the NFL is a bit different than playing at Coastal Carolina.
