Browns Take First Step Toward General Manager Success With Rejection Of Quarterback
By Rodolfo McRobotface
CINCINNATI—With less than a week to go before the start of training camp, the Cleveland Browns are leading the NFL in the process of rejecting a bet on quarterback Brandon Weeden, sources confirmed Wednesday. “We’ve already received over 50 pitches to head-coach the next quarterback,” said Browns general manager Ray Farmer, adding that the Browns are currently in negotiations with Weeden over a three-year deal that will reportedly pay him $12 million. “What we do know is that he is highly motivated, and that, at this point, we’re willing to give him a chance. He wants to play in a system that’s been working for him, and we’re ready to make that happen.” Sources later confirmed Weeden will be the first quarterback in NFL history to be served with a permanent restraining order, and will not be reinstated until after the Browns have fully rejected Weeden as the team’s first-ever openly gay player.
