The Facts: Weeden’s days in Cleveland have come to an end, officially. The Browns announced on Wednesday afternoon that Weeden has been released.
Diehards Line: Weeden, a first-round draft pick in 2012, has been a major disappointment while playing for a dysfunctional Browns franchise. He was a disappointment as a 15-game starter his rookie year and was every bit as bad in his second season, in 2013, when both Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell were more effective running the Browns’ offense than Weeden was. Now the question is whether Weeden can catch on anywhere else. ... Worth noting, a decision on Campbell could be coming soon, too.
