Dwayne Bowe should have a secured position with the Cleveland Browns, so making absurd proclamations about his quarterback is not necessary.

Bowe spoke on the potential of Browns incumbent starting quarterback Josh McCown, and the reviews were overly glowing.

“He’s showing all the potential of being a top-five quarterback in the NFL,” Bowe said, via Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal. “The way he’s performing out here, it’s unbelievable, making tight throws, trusting his receivers.”

Bowe pointed to McCown’s accuracy as the reason for a major breakthrough.

“That’s the one thing that has jumped out is his accuracy, not just on the underneath stuff but those intermediate to deeper throws,” Browns head coach Mike Pettine said. “I talk about having to watch the film and being able to evaluate, but I don’t have to watch the film to know he threw some pretty good balls in practice today. It’s good to see. Hopefully, that will carry over when we’re in pads.”

I don’t see it, but with an improved package of skill players and a suffocating defense, McCown simply has to manage the game.
