Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot on QB Brandon Weeden'... - [Full Article]

Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot on QB Brandon Weeden's propensity to have passed batted down at the line of scrimmage:

"Some of it had to do with all the short, three-step drops, and some of it with him not releasing the ball quickly enough. The new vertical scheme will feature more five- and seven-step drops, and the coaches have been working with Weeden on his footwork and speeding up his release. And fellow first-round pick Barkevious Mingo has shown a knack for batting down balls in practice, so when he works more with the first team, he'll give Weeden a good look in that department."

Fantasy Impact: 

The first step in fixing any problem is admitting that you have one, and it sounds like the Browns realize that Weeden's fundamentals need work. He's a tall (6'4") QB, so this shouldn't be an issue for him. We're expecting Weeden to take a step forward in his sophomore season.
