The NFL's strangest quarterback "competition" of the summer provided cover for the league's worst-kept secret.
In fact, NFL Films analyst Greg Cosell said Thursday on WHFS-FM in Tampa, Fla., that he "happens to know" Weeden is "not going to be their guy" for the 2014 season.
Working as an NFL Network analyst in 2012, Lombardi panned the previous regime's first-round selection of Weeden as a "panicked disaster."
Weeden spent his first season as the odd man out in the discussion of special rookie quarterbacks. Now in his second season, it's evident that he holds the ball too long, doesn't move well in the pocket and struggles with field vision, touch and ball placement.
