Gutsiest NFL Preseason Decisions

Browns draft Brandon Weeden

Having seemingly already invested in a starting signal-caller in Texas' Colt McCoy just two years ago, the late-first-round selection of 28-year-old Brandon Weeden out of Oklahoma State in 2012 is clearly a statement that the Browns are once again in rebuild mode. President Mike Holmgren and head coach Mike Shurmur have already named Weeden the starter over McCoy and are hoping that, along with the drafting of running back Trent Richardson, the decision will rescue Cleveland from the 4-12 record during Shurmur's first season in 2011. The team wasn't scared off by Weeden's age, which was a knock on him entering the draft.
