Jackson lauds RG III, says QB decision 'close'

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson hasn't made an official decision about his starting quarterback yet, but he seems to be closing in on one.

After Robert Griffin III delivered a solid scrimmage performance for the second straight day during an afternoon, non-contact workout at Ohio Stadium, the depth chart appears to be taking shape. But Jackson isn't ready to make a definitive call quite yet.

"Oh, I'm close, very close," Jackson said Saturday. "We'll know here pretty soon exactly what we're doing. I'm going to go back and talk to the people that I trust, that I spend a lot of time with making these kinds of decisions, and we'll move forward."

As the Browns press on in training camp, the next step is preparing for Friday's preseason game at Green Bay. And after Griffin tossed a pair of touchdowns in the Horseshoe one night after delivering a handful of big plays in a more meaningful scrimmage, he appears to be on track to claim that starting job.

On Saturday, he was the first quarterback on the field and again took the majority of the first-team reps.

But like Jackson, Griffin was in no rush for the Browns to solidify his standing in his battle with Josh McCown.

"It's just about coming out every day and proving it," Griffin said. "You know, we want to make sure that everybody earns their spot, earns their keep, and that's everybody's goal every time they step on the field. They want to put their best foot forward and show Coach what they can do, and he believes in all of us.

"It's a lot of fun every day to just go out and prove it."

Griffin is building a strong case, even if the latest evidence in a relatively low-stakes visit to Ohio State's campus will pale in comparison with the tests coming up in live settings against an actual opponent.

So Jackson will continue to wait on reaching a verdict, at least for now.

"I think I've said every day, everybody is seeing [Griffin] get better and better every day," Jackson said. "I'm not surprised. We're trying to create the right environment for him to be all he can be, and I think he's working extremely hard because this is something he really wants to do. Obviously, we've still got work to do, but I think he's done a great job thus far.

"There are still some ladders to climb, and we're going to keep climbing."
