According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden took the first team snaps during team drills on Wednesday.  Colt McCoy took the first team reps last week.

It’ll be interesting to see if Seneca Wallace gets any first team reps as well.  If he doesn’t, then the starting job will likely come down to McCoy and Weeden.

In the end, I believe the Browns starting job is for Weeden’s to lose.
