What’s next for 30-year-old Brandon Weeden?

Now that he has failed to make it in the NFL and in Major League baseball, the former Browns quarterback, still wants to give it a try in the NFL.

Is ti possible after watching this guy play, that another NFL team would want to take a shot with Weeden? The guy folds under pressure and doesn’t have what it takes, to mentally understand a complex NFL offense.

Brandon Weeden is the first Cleveland Browns player, I can recall, when cut no fan in Cleveland felt bad about. Usually someone stands up for one of the Browns players when they are released from the team.

In Weeden’s case it seems as though 100% of the fans are in agreement with the move. The sad part is Weeden still thinks he is an NFL quality quarterback. Here’s what he told one of the Cleveland reporters after he was cut:

Though this day might be the end of one chapter, I view this as the beginning of another. I want to thank the Cleveland Browns organization  Mr Haslam and Ray Farmer as well as the staffs that were here over my time with the Browns, to Mike Holmgren and Tom Heckert for bringing me on board, to Pat, Brad, Whip, Rob and Norv for helping me along the way. Most important, I want to say thank you to each and every one of my teammates for their support, camaraderie and friendship through some tough times and some good ones.  I will grow and  develop as a player in the National Football League, and I look forward to the next opportunity.

You notice Weeden didn’t talk about thanking the fans. Cleveland is known for having the greatest fans in the NFL. Yet, Weeden doesn’t talk about the fans once in his statement. This guy is delusional if he thinks he is an NFL quality quarterback.

He has some talent and if he was smart he would walk away from the NFL realizing it was a failed experiment, before he gets hurt. Try the PGA Tour Brandon Weeden. You’ll be safe on the golf course and you won’t have to worry about anyone hitting you.

Somebody said Weeden sent a Tweet to the fans, but it got intercepted.

    He should take the money he made and go hide before he sued for false advertisement !

    We all wish we could have failed at two professional sports. LG, you certainly must be happy to get in one more Weeden bashing article. At the end of the day I would say Weeden gets the last laugh. That is, he’s had a pretty nice payday.

    Heckert and Holmgren are the ones that should get beat up.

      You’re right Holmgren forced this guy on us and was gone himself. I still have a hard time thinking Holmgren didn’t know the team was being sold. He screwed us…..

    Is it possible that another NFL team will give this guy another chance? It would be a big surprise if they do.

    Your right, LG, he should try golf. I’ve heard he is a good golfer.

    You know what. I feel the last regime would have kept him around. It’s just a feeling. So I’m feeling better about Haslam and company as time goes by. And I especially feel good about Farmer’s actions.

      I think Farmer is making all the football calls. This guy is no dummy, he played football in the NFL and just watching Weeden last year had to make Farmer sick……

      • Ronald

        Watching him made lots of us sick.
