Brandon Weeden's days in a Browns uniform could have already expired according to reports around the NFL. It seems that the Browns new management team of Joe Banner and Michael Lombardi don't care for Mr. Weeden or his style of play. The Browns may feel trading Weeden now could get them a larger return on what they consider a wasted first round draft pick. It was evident Michael Lombardi didn't acre for Weeden while Lombardi was still employed by the NFL network. He made comments that would lead people to believe, he would have never drafted Brandon Weeden in the first place, had he been the Browns general manager. Now that Lombardi is the teams new G.M. it is likely they are talking behind closed doors on who they can unload the soon to be 30-year-old quarterback to and what they can get for him.
The consensus around the NFL seems to be, the Browns would like to get something in return for Weeden, rather than have him start the season only to fail and the team ends up with nothing. The team is in between a rock and a hard place right about now. After seeing Weeden's performance during the 2012 season the cat may already be out of the bag on Brandon Weeden. The NFL may already know the Browns are trying to unload a guy that is too slow on his feet, not quick enough in making decisions down field and a guy who doesn't seem to own a very accurate arm.
It may already be too late for the Browns to get anything for Weeden. As the free agency season is about to begin, it is going to get very interesting to see what the Cleveland Browns do to try to trade Brandon Weeden....
