The Facts: Following up on the ongoing story. ... Weeden will be fighting for a roster spot with the Cowboys behind Tony Romo. The former Browns first-round draft pick told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Saturday that he believes the constant change in Cleveland was one factor that stymied his growth as a player. "You try to do too much as a player and that's one thing if I could change about myself," Weeden said. "The regime that drafted me was out a year after I got there. I wouldn't try to do too much every Sunday. I think, just let the game kind of come to you and be more patient."
Diehards Line: The 30-year-old Weeden said one reason the Cowboys are a good situation for him is play-caller Scott Linehan. Weeden said Linehan runs a similar offense, utilizing similar terminology he learned last season under Norv Turner. The quarterback believes the lessened pressure and new scenery will also be a benefit. "I was ready for a kind of a clean slate and a fresh start," he said of leaving Cleveland. Weeden has his fresh start. To keep it he needs to prove to the Cowboys he's worth more than an arm to get through offseason workouts while Romo rehabs from back surgery.
