Browns fans, you might have to un-burn your Derek Anderson jerseys, WEWS Mike Cairns reporting that new head coach Rod Chudzinski may bring Derek Anderson back to Cleveland. From late Friday: hearing a little whisper about DA coming back to the Browns. Still owns a house in Westlake. Just saying Stay tuned. said he would love too — Mike Cairns (@MikeCairns5) January 12, 2013 from what I have been told Derek Anderson and Browns are talking, there has been communication. — Mike Cairns (@MikeCairns5) January 12, 2013 and from Saturday afternoon: Browns Coach Chud has reached out to Derek Anderson about coming to Cleveland. DA very interested in coming here most likely as backup — Mike Cairns (@MikeCairns5) January 12, 2013 But it’s not just Cairns. ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi tweeted: Are you ready for a Brandon Weeden v. Derek Anderson QB competition? #browns — Tony Grossi (@TonyGrossi) January 11, 2013 Regarding my previous tweet about possible return of Derek Anderson to #Browns … I wasn’t trying to be funny. There’s a chance. — Tony Grossi (@TonyGrossi) January 11, 2013 Anderson, 29 (the same age as Brandon Weeden. YAY), played for Chudzinki in Carolina last season, appearing in two games and completing all four of his pass attempts. Anderson’s last season as a starter was in 2010, when he threw for 2,065 yards with seven TDs and ten interceptions for the Arizona Cardinals.

  • We need a Colin Kaep(young gun with hart)
  • I would rather the Browns bring in Troy Smith than Derek Anderson. Browns need a young mobile QB. Colt McCoy deserves a fair chance, and maybe Weeden, too. McCoy got screwed after 2 seasons of playing in idiotic offenses and with a poor OL, yet he showed potential. Weeden was ducking and diving and panicking from game 1. He had some decent halves, but never a full quality game. As teams adjsuted to him, SHurmur and Weeden failed to adjust in return.
  • troy smith is to small like wilson with the seahawks what crap if they bring da back i will start cheering for the other paul brown team to heck with the CLEVELAND BROWNS
