Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has the unfortunate situation in front of him of going into this year with a new owner and general manager, who are looking for a successful season to kick start their beginning in Cleveland. Their patience assumingly would be thin regarding Weeden, who needs to show them he's got the right stuff to further his employment with the team. Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland thinks that the team is prepared to stick with Weeden throughout 2013 and let him have the opportunity to showcase his talents. If he doesn't show any improvement, they'll likely move on and go back to the proverbial drawing board. In his mailbag column, Grossi writes: 'It’s amazing so many people still believe Weeden is on his way out...  I believe the Browns have committed to Weeden — for one year, at least.  If he doesn’t show significant improvement under the new coaches and system, they will reboot the QB search next year.  If that happens, [Ryan] Mallett — who would be entering the final year of his New England contract — would be a prime option.  I don’t envision Weeden being traded this year.  I also wouldn’t be surprised to see no quarterback at all drafted this year.' var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

Browns Senior Editor Vic Carucci says, “It’s quarterbacks who make receivers.” Has he ever seen the Browns play?

Each week, Vic Carucci, does a column on the Cleveland Browns, for the official site of the Cleveland Browns. I found it humorous this week when I read what he wrote about.

NFL Draft Team Needs: Cleveland Browns

1. Quarterback: Though Brandon Weeden will probably get another shot at the starting position, some competition should be brought in.

Cornerback: Hayden is a legitimate #1 corner...
