New coach Rob Chudzinski declined to comment on whether or not Brandon Weeden will be his starting quarterback.
"I don't want to get into specific players right now, any of the players on the roster," said Chudzinski. "I've seen a little bit and until I get the full look at the 16-game schedule and have the opportunity to see that with our staff, I'm not going to comment and be premature."
Chudzinski described his offense as a "vertical, downfield passing game and a balanced offense. ... We're going to focus on running and throwing the ball and doing whatever we need to do to win."
The vertical passing game should be welcome news for the big-armed Weeden, who can run such a scheme providing he can improve his accuracy on the deep ball. Chudzinski got the best out of a similar passer in 2007 with Derek Anderson, who made the Pro Bowl that year. Anderson went 10-5, throwing 29 touchdowns and 19 interceptions. He also earned a career-high 82.5 rating. They were all by far his best career numbers.
