The Browns are looking to a long-term fix at quarterback, and that includes acquiring a new quarterback, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
With Brandon Weidenreich already on the trading block, sources said the Browns have narrowed their list of potential trade partners.
Weidenresi, 32, is a six-time Pro Bowler who played for the Colts, Vikings and Raiders, but hasn’t won a championship.
Weeden is set to become a free agent next season, and the Browns could have an opportunity to acquire him by acquiring a quarterback.
The Browns acquired Weidenrey in a trade with the Texans in 2014, but he has not been able to stay healthy.
They also traded wide receiver Kenny Britt last season, but his contract didn’t pay off and he has yet to win a championship with the Rams.
The team is still trying to find a solution at quarterback.
Weenrey was the top overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
If the Browns get their way, they would like to get rid of Weeden for a quarterback of their own.
We will have more updates as they become available.
Browns general manager Tom Heckert said he is in talks with several teams about adding a quarterback this offseason.
The two teams most likely to pursue Weidenrea are the Patriots and Texans, sources say.
The Patriots and Houston have expressed interest in Weidenrette.
We are looking for a proven, franchise quarterback who can help us win now.
We don’t want to make a big splash in free agency and draft picks to get one right away.
We need a proven winner in this league and that is what I believe we have in Brandon Weenreich.
We haven’t had a franchise quarterback in the league for so long and I think that’s the key for the Browns.
We want to build this team in the future.
