Former Tennessee QB signs with Cleveland Browns
Former Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs, one of the most exciting players in recent Vols history, signed with the Cleveland Browns Monday after a year in Nashville with the Tennessee Titans. Dobbs, who earned his first career NFL start this past season, will likely serve as backup to Deshaun Watson.
But Dobbs proved he is more than just a backup last year. The mobile QB has played for 5 NFL teams since being drafted in the 4th Round of the 2017 NFL Draft, most notably with the Titans last year and the Steelers from 2017-2019 and 2020-2021. This will be Dobbs’ 2nd stint in Cleveland.
Tennessee sports betting officially launched on November 1, 2020. Tennessee was the first SEC state to legalize sports betting.

Dobbs was perhaps the best Tennessee QB not named Hendon Hooker to play in Knoxville in the past 15 seasons. He led the Vols to a 9-4 record, barred mostly by head coach Butch Jones on a team that featured Alvin Kamara, Cam Sutton, Emmanuel Moseley, Derek Barnett, Shy Tuttle, Marquez Callaway, Jauan Jennings and more future NFL players. Despite all that talent, Tennessee still failed to win the SEC East despite beating Florida and Georgia.
Let’s see how Dobbs fares in Cleveland.
