Brandon Weeden Must Earn Starting Job for the Cleveland Browns

“We drafted a young quarterback that we think can come in and play right away,but we’re not just going to hand him the football.

Shurmur: Browns' Weeden has no guarantees

Heckert: Running back will be a “very big positive” this season

Tom Heckert saying that the running backs will be a positive in 2012 isn’t much of a statement considering that the Browns took Trent Richardson third overall. But that’s not all he was saying when he talked to Mike Florio on PFT Live. I think it’s pretty safe to say we draft a guy third overall, he’s going to be the guy.
