Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden was on the practice field today for the team’s rookie minicamp, and he wasn’t shy about his goals in Cleveland: He wants to win, and he wants to win big.
“We’re coming [here] with a goal to win games,” Weeden said, via the Akron Beacon-Journal. “Obviously our first goal is to get to the playoffs and go as far as we can and ultimately before it’s all said and done, win a Super Bowl. That’s my goal as a player. Before I’m done playing, I want to win a Super Bowl.”
Before Weeden can win any games, however, he needs to win a competition with Colt McCoy in training camp. Weeden sounds confident that he can do that.
“Obviously I hope I’m the guy,” Weeden said. “I’m gonna do everything in my power to be that guy.”
In what may be a sign that Weeden and McCoy won’t have the friendliest of competitions, Weeden told reporters that he has neither met nor spoken to McCoy — even though they were both at the team facility today.
