Weeden wants the job

Posted: Updated:

Brandon Weeden is working hard to be a better quarterback, and he hopes the team brass takes note. "I hope they see not only what I do out here, but how I'm handling myself working and doing all of those other things,'' he said.

Weeden was handed the starting job last year, despite the team saying he was in a quarterback competition. That appears to be the case again this year, Jason Campbell has only worked with the second team offense, but Weeden is taking it seriously. "This means a lot to me. This is my job and I take it seriously and I want to be the guy. I want to build off last year, and I think we're going to be a better football team and in a lot of ways I want to be a part of it.''

Coach Rob Chudzinski has knows more about his quarterback than he did in January. "You get to know about him. How he picks things up. How he translates and that's what we want to see is how he is translating to decision making on the field. That's what we are looking at right now at this step."

OTAs pick up again next week starting on Tuesday. They'll run Tuesday-Thursday each of the next two weeks.
