Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden has received all of the snaps with the first-team offense during organized team activities and minicamp. He believes he had made progress during the workouts but knows he has more things to work on before the season starts. 'Im right where I want to be,' Weeden said. 'Theres some things that I need to work on that I maybe didnt hit when I was out here, but overall, I think my progress was pretty good. We had 16 practices, and I think each practice got better for myself and not only me but for the offense, the flow, how fast we were playing. They bumped the play clock down. We were still operating really, really fast. So, yeah, Im pleased with it. Am I satisfied? Absolutely not.'

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden has looked exceptional in the last three team practices that were open to the media, according to ESPNCleveland.com writer Tony Grossi. Grossi acknowledges that any passer with a little experience and a strong arm should excel in such drills, but Weeden also demonstrated his growth by making a read and adjustment for a big play in one of the sessions. Grossi believes that Jason Campbell and Brian Hoyer will share time with the second team, because Weeden won't have competition for the starting job. Weeden may be worth a flier in a standard league, but he'll have to do a lot more than this to prove that he's more than a low-end QB2.
