You never want to be a guy drafted by the previous regime when your future is in doubt. Brandon Weeden had a pretty typical up and down rookie year for a relatively bad team last season. He also played for a pretty questionable (at best) coaching staff and was surrounded by fellow rookies in key skill positions. Still, it seems that the new Cleveland Browns brass might have already seen enough. There are apparently some league rumblings that Weeden could be traded this off-season. The tidbit from the National Football Post indicates that Joe Banner and Mike Lombardi “don’t think much” of Brandon Weeden. While, they haven’t said much about Weeden recently, we certainly know that Lombardi wasn’t a fan of the selection at the time Tom Heckert 1 made the selection. So that’s not at all unreasonable to assume that they “don’t think much” of him. The Post also says that they could trade him “when they can get something for him.” Not if, mind you, but when. This indicates that either the sources of the rumor, or the writer himself still thinks that Weeden, coming off a very rookie-like season, might still be able to give them something back of value. Then again, “something” isn’t exactly indicative of anything substantial. One thing’s for sure. Quarterbacks are always in demand in the NFL and someone will always give more than they are worth in trade. Still, it is highly doubtful that the Browns can get anything close to an approximation of the value of the 22nd pick they used a year ago to draft him.
