CLEVELAND -- The list of college players reportedly willing to go back to school instead of being selected by the Cleveland Browns at the top of the 2018 NFL Draft continues to grow, and the latest name to be added is UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday that “Privately, Rosen has expressed concern about winding up in Cleveland and would rather be with a more stable franchise, such as the Giants.”

Earlier this season, media outlets reported that USC quarterback Sam Darnold considered forgoing the 2018 NFL Draft and returning to the Trojans in order to avoid being selected by the Browns.
Despite not being able to play in the upcoming Cactus Bowl because of an injured shoulder, Rosen completed 283 of his 452 attempts (62.6 percent) for 3,756 yards and 26 touchdowns against 10 interceptions this season.
In his three-year career at UCLA, the 6-foot-4, 218-pound Rosen threw for 9,341 yards and 59 touchdowns against 26 interceptions.
Since returning to the National Football League in 1999, the Browns have started 28 different quarterbacks, burned through nine head coaches, had just two winning seasons and made only one playoff appearance.
This season, rookie DeShone Kizer has started 14 games and completed 239 of his 446 attempts for 2,580 yards with nine touchdowns and a league-worst 21 interceptions.
Quarterback Kevin Hogan made one start, in a 33-17 loss to the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium, and last year's starter, Cody Kessler, has made spot appearances for the Browns.
As a team, the Browns have completed 296 of their 544 attempts for 3,223 yards with 13 touchdowns and 27 interceptions this season. Kizer, Hogan and Kessler have been sacked 44 times and carry a quarterback rating that is more than 40 points lower than their opposing signal-callers.
