Brad Childress not yet willing to call Brandon Weeden 'quarterback of the future'

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress said he'd wait until the end of the season to pass judgement on if Brandon Weeden is the quarterback of the future in Cleveland.

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress wouldn't call Brandon Weeden the quarterback of the future just yet, saying he wanted to wait until the end of the season to pass judgement on the rookie.

Childress wants to see how Weeden grows in the last seven games of the season and how he plays in the cold weather. "I want to see the whole body of work before I venture an opinion on where he's at,'' Childress said. He was willing to say that he thought he was doing pretty well for a rookie, but obviously there is room for improvement.

The Browns selected Weeden with the 22nd pick of the 2012 NFL Draft and he won the starting job over Colt McCoy in training camp. Through the first nine games of the season Weeden has completed 55.1 percent of his passes for 2,088 yards with nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions, four of which came in the season opener.
