Fourth-year guarantee holdup in Weeden deal

National Football Post

The only snag preventing the Brandon Weeden deal from being completed is whether or not the fourth year of the contract will be fully guaranteed, says the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The report goes on to say that that same problem is preventing deals being completed for the three players picked directly ahead of Weeden, who was selected 22nd overall. The three players picked right before Weeden are Shea McClellin by the Bears, Kendall Wright by the Titans and Chandler Jones by the Patriots.

The Browns were in this situation last year and wound up compromising with Phil Taylor, whom they selected with the 21st pick. Cleveland wound up working a roster bonus/base guarantee with Taylor rather than a fully guaranteed fourth year.
