05:33 PM ET 02.08 | The Cleveland Browns made sweeping changes after winning just five games last season. The team's owner, president, general manager, head coach and coaching staff are all new this season. Quarterback may be the next step down the line, Brandon Weeden told the Associated Press. "We're talking about a multibillion-dollar corporation, essentially," Weeden said. "There's going to be changes. Obviously, we've already seen some. But there's going to be competition. The guys that drafted me are no longer there, so I fully expect there to be competition. I would want competition. I want to go into camp and compete. If I had won 10 or 11 games last year, that may not be the case, but we weren't able to get that done."

14 TD's and 17 INT's with only a 72.6 Quaterback rating, he SHOULD expect competition. Rookie or not. Those #'s suck.

Consider his supporting cast.

All Quarterbacks should have Competition, it's in the best interest of the team!

I think he has room to grow this upcoming season and he is a decent enough quarterback to fight us into the playoffs as long as Little, Gordon, and Benjamin grow with him. He needs another compliment to Richardson and he should be good enough next year.

Both he and Tannehill had similar stats.

They better not pull the plug on a rookie QB after one year. This is getting ridiculous.

No reason he should expect anything else than a shot to retain his position. He is only a second year player and did not WOW anyone last season, so yeah, competition SHOULD be expected. He has the ability and shown flashes here and there to be good. Biggest concern with Weedon is that he did not seem to learn from his mistakes as the season went on, often making the SAME mistakes. Now, sometimes players make huge leaps during the offseason in which they correst most the things they did not correct as the season went on...if he does that, he should be good. If not, then he will put serious doubt into everyone's mind.
