Browns GM Tom Heckert is expecting Brandon Weeden to be the team's starting QB.
“The best guy’s gonna play, but we fully expect Brandon to be that guy,” Heckert told reporters Monday night before he spoke to a crowd of more than 450 people at the 33rd annual Akron Browns Backers banquet at Tangier restaurant. “Now if he’s not, and Colt plays better or Seneca, whoever — but right now that’s our goal is to have [Weeden] be the guy.”
Heckert said his thoughts about Weeden were confirmed two weeks ago during rookie minicamp.
“I don’t think anything stood out any different than what we thought,” Heckert said. “He’s got a strong arm. He’s accurate. He’s a very good leader and he’s smart. Picking up the offense was nothing for him.”
