Are the Browns Considering Trading Weeden in the Off-Season?

The Cleveland Browns are rumored to be considering trading QB Brandon Weeden this off-season after finishing the 2012 season with a disappointing 5-11 record. Although Weeden had the second-highest rookie quarterback passing total in the league last season at 3,385 yards, the new Browns management has been dropping hints that they would like to replace Weeden. One possible replacement for Weeden is 49ers QB Alex Smith, who is most likely going to be traded by San Francisco this year.

Some Browns fans are even hoping that the Baltimore Ravens' salary cap difficulties could lead to the acquisition of championship winner Joe Flacco. However, acquiring Flacco is a definite longshot and most commentators expect the Ravens to make him a franchise player by March 4. Despite having nearly $50 million in available cap space, the Cleveland Browns might be better off keeping Weeden and giving him a chance to develop and improve as a second-year player. 

A better option for Cleveland would be to find another competitive backup quarterback who would challenge Weeden to step up his level of play. Even with the lack of top-tier quarterbacks available this year, Cleveland should be able to acquire a decent backup quarterback with some smart trades and their nearly $50 million in cap space. Despite a difficult rookie season, QB Brandon Weeden also has his supporters. Respected ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. believes that if Weeden could be a participant in this year's draft, he would be the number one draft pick.
