Jimmy Haslam discusses future of Brandon Weeden, Pat Shurmur

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam discusses the future of quarterback Brandon Weeden and head coach Pat Shurmur.

Jimmy Haslam, the new owner of the Cleveland Browns, is using the rest of the season to take a good look at important parts of the organization including quarterback Brandon Weeden and coach Pat Shurmur. In an interview with the Akron Beacon Journal, Haslam would not make any direct comments on personnel, but did discuss the progress his team is making.

Haslam, noting that the Browns have lost a lot of close games, said, "we're 3-8 but could easily be 6-5 or 5-6, so the team is better than it was."

When asked about Weeden, Haslam said the quarterback has done some things well and has areas in which he could improve. Haslam said he would wait until the end of the season to evaluate Weeden and everyone else on the team.

Haslam did note the significance of the quarterback position, saying that it was the most important aspect of developing a consistent winning football team.
