Browns Offseason: Brandon Weeden Taking First Team Snaps, Colt McCoy Throwing 'Wobbly Ducks'

The Cleveland Browns have a quarterback battle on their hands, if you believe that when they say it. It's debatable at this point whether or not the team is just going through the motions to replace 2011 starter Colt McCoy with first-round draftee Brandon Weeden. McCoy had been taking first team snaps at quarterback a week ago, but as of Wednesday, it's Weeden, according to a Tweet from Mary Kay Cabot.

She says that Weeden is taking the first team 11-on-11 reps, though it could be that they're alternating. It's significant that Weeden is already taking first team reps from McCoy, who has a significant head start. That head start doesn't appear to be helping him, if you believe Darl Ruiter's Twitter, in which he references McCoy throwing up "wobbly ducks."

He also followed that up with a more direct Tweet in regards to the QB competition:

It sure does look more and more like Weeden will be the guy going forward, but there's a lot of time left yet, especially if there's an actual QB battle going on. Also of note from OTAs is the fact that Trent Richardson - the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft - is with the first team, unsurprisingly. On top of that, Mary Kay Cabot adds that Mitchell Schwartz is in the startling lineup as well - at right tackle.
