"He had a pretty good year for us," Shurmur said.
All of this falls in line with what Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com has heard about Weeden in recent workouts, saying he has the look of a "franchise quarterback."
We've said all along the words "quarterback competition" don't fit in Cleveland this summer. It's only June, but Weeden is the signal-caller meeting with reporters while Colt McCoy stands in the shadows. No matter what the team says about a duel between the passers, Weeden is being groomed to start Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The rest is semantics.
