Brandon Kyle Weeden, renowned American football quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, is in the limelight for striking a new deal. There was plenty of hype about a possible shift, but everything surfaced for the public on Thursday, when general managers had decided where to place this season’s sought after players.
Altogether eight major reshuffles and trades happened among 12 of the league's 32 teams. The decisions were made after a lot of contemplation. The Browns coach Pat Shurmur added Brandon Weeden with the No. 22 selection and also talked about the sections with the media. According to a report published by ABCLocal, he said, "Unfortunately, we had to make a little trade to secure the pick,” adding, "We knew as we went through the process that he was our guy and so we did what we had to do to secure it. We had pretty good knowledge that there were teams behind that wanted him as well, so we gave up a couple of picks to make sure we got him. We're thrilled a bunch about Trent."
This particular decision has also triggered some controversy. Prior to the announcements, there was heavy speculation that wide receiver Kendall Wright would be getting this spot if he didn't move to 20th-overall to Tennessee. Weeden might not have that kind of experience from a progression standpoint - which means people might raise concerns over his selection. However, Weeden performed quite well last year as he threw for over 4,700 yards, almost covering 37 touchdowns with a completion percentage of 72.3 percent. In the 2012 Fiesta Bowl, which was the last game of his college football career, Brandon Weeden threw for 399 yards, completed 29 of 42 passes, and had 4 touchdowns along with one interception in a 41-38 win against the Stanford Cardinal in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl which justifies the move and hopefully he will prove to be an asset for the team.
Brandon Kyle Weeden is a great pitcher. His journey started when he was drafted in the second round of the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft by the New York Yankees as their first selection in the draft and soon after his career took off. In 2003, he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers withand Yhency Brazoban for Kevin Brown. Brandon Kyle Weeden changed many teams - which not only increased his exposure, but also brought a lot of diverse experience under his belt. Following the 2005 season, he was selected in the Rule 5 Draft by the Kansas City Royals.
