The Cleveland Browns have made a quarterback decision.
Rookie Deshone Kizer has been named the starting quarterback.
The organization took to Twitter Sunday to make the announcement.

The decision comes just one day after Kizer's first pre-season start against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Kizer played the entire first half against the Buccaneers, completing just 6 of 18 passes for 93 yards and an interception. But he showed the poise Jackson was hoping to see from the former Notre Dame standout.
The Browns have been cycling thorough quarterbacks at an alarming rate, and their inability to find the right one has resulted in annual ineptitude.
Cleveland started three quarterbacks while going 1-15 last season.
According to WKYC's Ben Axelrod, this is quite a big deal.

The Cleveland Browns are set to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the season opener on September 10.
