Multiple sources are reporting that the Browns former first round draft pick Brandon Weeden won’t be the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns if he can’t earn the spot in the next training camp. Browns new head coach Rob Chudzinski came out and said it would be premature to name Weeden as the Browns starter, it is obvious that Chud won’t make the same mistakes former head coach Pat Shurmur made by naming Weeden the starter right out of the gates.
The only part of the new Browns coaching staff that had anything to say about Weeden that could be taken as a positive was new offensive coordinator Norv Turner when he stated that Weeden could have the skill set they are looking for. The Browns new G.M. Michael Lombardi already made his feelings known when he made public statements on the NFL network saying; drafting Weeden in 2012 was a “panicked disaster.”
Brandon Weeden doesn’t have the support of the new brain-trust of the Cleveland Browns. It is likely that the Browns would either start Colt McCoy or go out and find the quarterback they like. Brandon Weeden’s days in a Cleveland Browns uniform could come to an end sooner than his supporting fans think. Weeden will have to work his butt off if he is going to lead the Cleveland Browns out of the gates. Right now it is not looking very likely. It is already known that Jimmy Haslam III and Joe Banner don’t like Brandon Weeden. You could see the discussed in Haslam’s face during the Colts game.
