When is a ringing endorsement not so ringing? Anytime the Cleveland Browns front office praises quarterback Brandon Weeden. When team CEO Joe Banner says the current Browns starting QB ‘has a reasonable chance’ of keeping the job, it’s not ringing at all. The Browns are not sold on Weeden as a franchise quarterback, but they are determined to find out whether he's a viable short-term solution. “First of all, the coaches are going to do that and all of us involved in personnel and coaching will have a say in that and opinion on that," Banner said, via Dan Hanzus of NFL.com. "But really we have the luxury of having (coach Rob Chudzinski) and (offensive coordinator) Norv (Turner) here in terms of their experience, their knowledge of that position, what they need in that position. "Brandon's got lot of strengths. He fits the scheme we're going to play," Banner said. "Frankly, we rely a lot on Chudz and Norv for their evaluation of what they're looking for and I believe there's a reasonable chance that this guy has what it takes to do it. "Giving him the opportunity and I think everybody is excited, people have written and talked about, he's come back here, he's worked hard, he's got a great work ethic about things and he's doing everything he can to be the best he can be."
