Brandon Weeden cannot wait to get back on the field as the Browns starting quarterback. “I want to be out there as much as possible with these guys preparing and going through the weekly process of going out and playing a game,” Weeden said. “I’m excited about it.
The Browns on-again, off-again starting quarterback was met by boos from Cleveland fans on Sunday before he’d even taken a snap. He says he’s tuned it out. “It is what it is,” Weeden said. “I’ve been through a lot. I’d like to think I’m mature enough to handle all that stuff, but I learned a long time ago you can only control so much. Before I even throw a pass, or we have a trick play and the trick play didn’t work and I have to throw it away and I still get booed, you have to laugh it off and use that as positive reinforcement, use it as ammo to go out and play well.”
Nobody knows what the future holds for Weeden in Cleveland, but he will enjoy the last five games of the season. “I think for the next five weeks, I’m a Cleveland Brown. After that, whatever happens is out of my control. I’m excited. This is one of the best teams I’ve ever been on as far as just the group of guys in this locker room, the atmosphere we have going on, the friendships we have and the camaraderie, it’s great. I’m going to enjoy every minute of it as long as I’m here, and then if they tell me to beat it, then we’ll see. Right now, my main focus is the Cleveland Browns and winning this Sunday.”
The Browns take on Jacksonville at 1:00 at First Energy Stadium.
