A former minor league pitcher with a cannon for an arm, Brandon Weededn came to Cleveland with big expectations. He led a locked and loaded offense at Oklahoma State, and the hope was that with his advanced age (27 when he was drafted), he would be able to lead Cleveland to some quick success.
Weeded did have 3,385 passing yards in his first season with the Browns, which is a franchise rookie record, but that was offset by the 17 interceptions he threw.
Weeden will forever be known as “Flipper” in Browns lore.
It didn’t all bad for Weeden, as he now has a pretty plush gig back up Tony Romo in Dallas.
