Case Keenum has funny comment about spot start for Browns
Case Keenum will step in for the injured Baker Mayfield Thursday night, and there is no doubt the veteran quarterback is ready for the challenge.
Keenum had a pretty funny take on Wednesday when discussing his backup duties. The journeyman quarterback admitted he’s stepped in on late notice so many times in his career that it’s become his calling card.
“I’m known for this. I’ve done this my entire career.” Case Keenum filling in on late notice. He said he’s done it to the point to where he’s introducing himself to teammates in the huddle

Keenum isn’t wrong, to be fair. Only once in his career has the 33-year-old made a full complement of starts in a season. This will be the eighth time in the last nine seasons, however, that he’s made at least one start. It’ll be the sixth organization he’s done it for, too.
Admittedly, some ex-teammates might say Keenum’s method of introduction makes him out to be cold and closed-off. In this situation, it’s unlikely to be a problem, with Keenum in his second year with Cleveland.
