First round draft pick Brandon Weeden is "the guy" for the Browns. The quarterback of the future, a 28-year-old rookie with a golden arm who is likely to supplant Colt McCoy as the starter.
"In our opinion, he is (the guy)," Browns General Manager Tom Heckert said. "We took the kid at the 22nd pick of the draft. We're hoping he is."
Heckert said discussions about trading McCoy would take place through the evening and into Friday.
It appears the Browns are "all in" with Weeden as their new starter and aren't planning to make him compete for the job. Fantasy-wise, he's still not a great option as a rookie QB leading a Browns offense that will likely struggle in 2012.
