The Browns have one of the worst quarterback situations in the NFL. Brandon Weeden did nothing last year to prove that he was "the man" moving forward, and Jason Campbell could be a stop-gap quarterback at best. Weeden said Friday, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, that he was surprised that the Browns added quarterback Brian Hoyer to the mix. "I was surprised, but that’s the nature of the beast. It’s part of this business and if you start worrying about it, that’s too much to worry about. That’s my mentality going forward." Right now, it appears that Jason Campbell, not Brian Hoyer, is his biggest concern in regard to the Browns' starting position. At  27 years old, however, Hoyer is younger than Weeden, 29, and Campbell, 31, making him a possible long-term starter if he shows promise. Otherwise, the Browns will be picking the best man for the job. Last season, Weeden was unable to complete a high percentage of passes, just 57.4%, and he threw more interceptions, 17, than he did touchdowns, 14. While some of the blame can be spread to his lackluster set of offensive weapons, it's still the quarterback's job to drive the offense, and that's something that Weeden wasn't able to do a season ago. By adding Hoyer, the Browns are just trying to increase competition at one of their weakest positions. [follow]
