BEREA, Ohio – Much was made of the Browns’ decision to draft a 28-year-old quarterback a season ago. But if Brandon Weeden fails to produce this fall, his age likely becomes inconsequential to Cleveland fans.

“If Brandon doesn’t do it this year, we’re going to be starting over again at quarterback,” former Browns coach Sam Rutigliano said.

Not long ago, few could imagine giving up on a first-round quarterback after just two seasons. Nowadays, few would refute Rutligliano’s assessment. Not just in Cleveland, but throughout the NFL.

As the position grows in importance and more college quarterbacks arrive in the league ready to play the pressure on incumbents has never been higher.
