Weeden Says He’ll Have Contract Signed Before Training Camp

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden reiterated Monday that he will sign his rookie contract before training camp starts in late July.

Weeden, the 22nd overall pick, and running back Trent Richardson, the third overall pick, are the only members of the Browns’ 2012 draft class who have yet to sign their rookie deals. Of course, they’re also the team’s only first-round selections this year.

“I’m ready to sign it,” Weeden told Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal Monday during the 13th annual Cleveland Browns Foundation Golf Tournament at Firestone Country Club. “I’m not going to miss any time. I’m going to sign before [training] camp. It’s just nitpick stuff, but we’ll get it done. I’ll get it done.”

“I’d have signed two weeks ago if I could have,” Weeden told reporters on May 22. “I’m not going to hold out. We just want what’s fair for me. My agent’s doing that. I haven’t even talked to [the Browns] about it. Whenever the day comes, I’ll sign the paper and go on about it.”

    Both Weeds and T-Rich look very promising to me. Schwartz is a solid addition. If Cooper and Benjamin are as good as they are practicing without pads or contact, this could be an outstanding draft class — particularly for the offense. If 4 of the above players get on the field, then the offense has become a new entity entirely over the space of 2 years. Weeden, Richardson, Schwartz, Little, Benjamin, add Cameron, Cooper and Pinkston into the mix — and this is not the same offense (5 starters either rookies or sophs). Whatever Marecic and Cameron can bring, the better. Based on what we have witnessed ’round these parts for over the past decade, I would think that this is a refreshing change, for a change. This is a tough division — probably the toughest in pro football. It is a consistently tough division, too. Whatever team you build, has to last for years.
