The Cleveland Browns have had six different opening day quarterbacks the last six years.
Number seven could be on the way.
A year after a passer was taken in the first round, the Browns appear poised to again go through the ritual of search and find at the sports most important position.
Though theyve not ruled Brandon Weeden out, new coach Rob Chudzinski and Player Personnel Director Mike Lombardi also have said nothing to support their belief in him.
And based on Lombardis words as an analyst, Weeden might want to start making other plans.
At this point, the reported December rumor from the Boston Globe that Lombardi would trade for New England backup Ryan Mallett has to be given credence.
The Browns havent commented, but given the way they hired Lombardi after dismissing his hire, and given the way they said things came together on his hire in the past week to 10 days after it had been reported for months well anything seems possible.
Especially a rumor that might link Lombardi...
