Weeden to get a green light?
By AJ Mass
Are the reports of Brandon Weeden's demise as the starting quarterback in Cleveland a bit premature? The jury is still out on that, but there does seem to be a bit more enthusiasm coming from Norv Turner, the man who will be calling the plays for the Browns in 2013, than there is from new head coach Rob Chudzinski.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Chudzinski as saying it was "premature" to write in Weeden's name at the top of the quarterbacks depth chart, but Turner spun the discussion a bit more optimistically. Turner said Weeden "has the skill set we're looking for" and expressed ecitement about working with his "big arm."
Free agency is sure to provide the team with plenty of options, including the likes of Alex Smith, but don't be surprised if the Browns end up standing pat with what they've got to see if Turner can't work his magic yet again.
