Brandon Weeden gets the start, finds end zone in opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) With Tony Romo sidelined, Cowboys backup quarterback Brandon Weeden got the start for Thursday's preseason opener against the Chargers. 

Weeden played the first half of the game and hooked up with James Hanna for a 4-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He completed 13 of 17 passes for 107 yards ad a touchdown. He also had one run for a gain of 10 yards. 

Weeden will likely be relegated to backup duties, as Romo is expected to return for the second preseason game, Aug. 16 against Baltimore.

Brandon Weeden could play entire first half


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden will start Thursday's game against the Chargers and play as much as a half, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Tony Romo is sitting out as the team manages his comeback from back surgery.

"It’ll be good to be out there with those guys," Weeden said. “We’ve got some great offensive weapons. I’m excited to be able to go out and compete with those guys. It’s the first time with the star on my helmet, and it feels good. It’s very exciting."

Signed in the offseason, Weeden will back up Romo. Caleb Hanie and Dustin Vaughn are the quarterbacks behind Weeden.

"He just needs to play," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said of Weeden. "If you know his biography, his time he spent in baseball, a two-year stint at Oklahoma State and playing in a couple of different systems in Cleveland.

"He just needs to takes snaps. He has a lot of natural ability. You can see that. He is really good throwing the football. He can throw any kind of ball you want him to throw. He just needs to take snaps, and to see him grow when he gets an opportunity to take snaps, make mistakes, make plays and learn from it all."

Brandon Weeden moves up to No. 2


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) With the Cowboys' release of Kyle Orton, Brandon Weeden will enter the season as the backup quarterback behind Tony Romo. Weeden went 0-5 as a starter last year with the Browns, throwing nine touchdowns and nine interceptions.

But Dallas coaches have been impressed with Weeden, who took all the first-team reps during OTAs and minicamp while Romo recovered from back surgery.


Brandon Weeden not worried about Kyle Orton's decision


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) The Cowboys still don't know whether backup quarterback Kyle Orton will play this season. But Brandon Weeden said the uncertainty is not affecting his preparation.

"I’m going to go about my business the same way regardless. I haven’t met Kyle, so I can’t really speak on it, but whatever he decides to do – it’s kind of out of my control," Weeden told the team's website. "So what I’m worried about is, if I’m running with the twos out there, do my job to make the twos better. I want to make the team better any way I can, so it doesn’t change my mindset or the way I feel about it."

Weeden said his goal is to earn the backup job, regardless of whether Orton shows up.


Brandon Weeden provides insurance for Kyle Orton


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) The Cowboys anticipate quarterback Kyle Orton participating in the mandatory June minicamp, but if he retires they'll move forward with Brandon Weeden as Tony Romo's backup, reports the Dallas Morning News.

"Well, that's the plan," quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. "That's one of the reasons we signed [Weeden]. We're still hopeful that Kyle will be here, but if he doesn't, we feel really good about Brandon, especially since he's going through our offseason program."


Brandon Weeden: 'Tried to do too much'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden looked back on his time with the Browns with some regret.

"It wasn't an ideal situation," Weeden told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "The regime that drafted me was out a year after I got there. You never know the plans the group coming in has and I think, as a player, as much as you try not to do too much, try not to put too much pressure on yourself to perform and show you can be the guy for the long haul, sometimes you get caught up in it.

"You try to do too much as a player and that's one thing if I could change about myself, I wouldn't try to do too much every Sunday. I think, just let the game kind of come to you and be more patient."

Weeden is excited to be in Dallas, where's he's the third QB behind Tony Romo and Kyle Orton. "I was ready for kind of a clean slate and a fresh start," he said.

Browns release Brandon Weeden


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Browns 'surely will eat' Brandon Weeden's contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has a $2 million contract guarantee that "might make him untradeable, but the Browns surely will eat it rather than bring him back," reports ESPNCleveland.com. The team is fully expected to release Weeden, who has two years left on his contract.

Browns will decide Brandon Weeden's future 'in time'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Browns general manager Ray Farmer said a decision on quarterback Brandon Weeden will be coming "in time" on if he will return to Cleveland in 2014, reports the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

"Do I think he can be a winning quarterback in the NFL?" said Farmer. "Let me say this. When we grade players, we grade them on what they've done, specifically when you're in the National Football League. The college draft, from my perspective, is a projection. You put a grade on a players based on what you think he becomes in one to two years’ time. Once you’re in the National Football league, you’re graded upon your performance and what you were able to achieve at that moment. With that being said, everybody’s performance warrants a grade that is relative of that performance. We have a grade on Brandon. We know what that grade is. In time, his agent and he will both know where we stand with Brandon and he will be able to release than information."


Sources: Brandon Weeden wants out of Cleveland


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/12/2014) Multiple sources suggest Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden wants out of Cleveland

"Given the turmoil with the coaching staff and lack of public support from the most recent front office, he's interested in a fresh start with a clean slate and an opportunity to compete to show he has the talent to develop into a productive player in the league," NFL Network reporter Mike Silver said Tuesday.

Weeden has struggled in two years (and two different regimes) with the Browns. If he stays with them it will be with his third coaching staff in as many seasons. 

Silver suggested the Buccaneers, Cardinals and Texans as potential landing spots for the 30-year-old passer. Two of his previous playcallers, Norv Turner and Pat Shurmur, are in Minnesota and Philadelphia, respectively.

Injury report settles Browns quarterback issue for now


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Injured Browns QBs still not cleared to practice

Brandon Weeden sent home because of concussion


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Brandon Weeden sustains concussion late in Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden was diagnosed with a concussion that was sustained late in the fourth quarter of the loss Sunday to Jacksonville. He will go through protocol before being able to return.

Weeden was replacing Jason Campbell, who is also sidelined with a concussion.


Bad Brandon Weeden overtakes good Brandon Weeden in loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Even when the good Brandon Weeden shows up for a while, the bad Brandon Weeden always returns. The Browns quarterback played well at times Sunday against Jacksonville, but three turnovers in three consecutive second-quarter possessions played a huge role in the defeat.

Weeden completed 24 of 40 for 370 yards, including a 95-yard catch-and-run by record-setting wideout Josh Gordon. But he also tossed silly interceptions on successive possessions and followed that with a fumble to turn a lead into a deficit.

The Jekyll-Hyde act began immediately on a 42-yard pass to Gordon as Weeden hit 7 of his first 10 for 142 yards and the first of two scores to the blossoming wide receiver. Weeden collapsed in the second quarter, threw two touchdown passes after intermission, then failed to hit his receivers after the Browns fell behind.

If Jason Campbell isn't recovered from his concussion or if Rob Chudzinski deems Weeden the starter, he will try to cut down his mistakes at New England in Week 14.


Brandon Weeden a surprisingly decent Fantasy play in Week 13


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) At first thought, the notion of inserting Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden into a Fantasy lineup might seem ridiculous. After all, he is only the starter by default at this point. But several factors point to him not being a bad play in Week 13.

The most significant is that Sunday foe Jacksonville owns one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL. They rank last in sacks with 17, which bodes well for Weeden, who doesn't perform well under pressure. They rank 30th in interceptions with just five, 22nd in passing touchdowns allowed (20) and 18th in yards given up through the air (2,666). And the only reason that total isn't higher is because opponents have been busy running all over them as well.

Weeden does not manage a game effectively, but he has established a productive rapport with explosive wideout Josh Gordon, who is averaging 18.3 yards per reception, and he tends to throw deep quite often. That could result in some big plays against the porous Jaguars.

The three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers have Weeden ranked between 22nd and 24th among NFL quarterbacks this week. The hunch here is that it should be a little higher. No Fantasy owners going to play Weeden unless, just like the Browns, an injury has taken away your starter. But if you're desperate, he is a better option than you might think.


Brandon Weeden set to start against Jaguars


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) As expected, Browns embattled quarterback Brandon Weeden has been named the starter for the game Sunday against Jacksonville. Jason Campbell has been all but ruled out with a concussion.

Weeden, who was booed lustily by Cleveland fans upon entering the Week 12 game against Pittsburgh, said Wednesday that such a reaction bothers his teammates more than it does him, per the Akron Beacon Journal. He added that he uses it to psych himself up.


Brandon Weeden likely to start Week 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2013) Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Monday quarterback Jason Campbell (concussion) hasn't been ruled out for Week 13 vs. Jacksonville, but he said chances are Brandon Weeden will start Sunday. Weeden replaced Campbell Week 12 vs. Pittsburgh, but completed only 43.3 percent of his passes (13 of 30) for 209 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
