COMMENTARY | For Brandon Weeden, this may be his last chance to show the Browns he can be the arm and the leader they need to capitalize on the positive changes they've made from the front office down. The good news is Weeden's arm strength fits into offensive coordinator Norv Turner's vertical offense style of play, and Turner is known for adapting the game plan to the talent. Add a solid offensive line and legitimate running game that will keep opposing defenses honest and the conditions might be just right for Weeden to excel.
