Browns coach Rob Chudzinski won't rule out listening to trade offers for quarterbacks Brandon Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
When asked specifically today if he'll listen to offers for those two, Chudzinski said, "We’re looking to improve our team in any areas, by any means of doing that."
Chudzinski said the Browns are excited about Weeden's skill set, but still declined to commit to him as the Browns' starter for 2013. The club is evaluating quarterbacks here at the NFL Combine, and will also most likely consider adding a veteran quarterback.
Browns owner Jimmy Haslam made it clear at the Super Bowl that the Browns will have competition this season for their starting job.
“We have three guys here that provide competition and we’ll leave it open to whatever happens in terms of any other possible scenarios,'' said Chudzinski. "We’re going to look at everything, every possibility to try to make the team better. I’m excited about Brandon.
Asked if there's another change coming at quarterback, Chudzinski said, "Some of those things are hard to say. We need to get out on the practice field. We need to get into the meetings, get into the installs and evaluate him. We’re going to put the best guy on the field that gives us the best chance to win.”
He said he's confident offensive coordinator Norv Turner can help Weeden improve: "He has a really good arm, he can throw the ball, he can make all the throws that you need to throw, he has a good, calm poise and demeanor in the pocket. Again, he was up and down a little bit and during the season as any quarterback, especially a young quarterback is. You see some things that are there that get you excited about him.''
