Cleveland Browns

Some mixed signals have emerged from Berea regarding whether the Cleveland Browns will install quarterback Brandon Weeden as the starter in his rookie season.  On Monday night, G.M. Tom Heckert provided perhaps the clearest description yet of where things stand.
“I think when we say open competition, the best guy is gonna play,” Heckert told reporters at the 33rd annual Akron Browns Backers banquet, via Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal.  “That’s the way it is, but we drafted Brandon Weeden to be that guy   You draft a guy 22nd in the draft, you think he’s gonna be that guy.  You can write it and talk about it however you want.  The best guy’s gonna play, but we fully expect Brandon to be that guy.  Now if he’s not, and Colt [McCoy] plays better or Seneca [Wallace], whoever, but right now that’s our goal is to have [Weeden] be the guy.”
