Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden’s Job Put On Craigslist
Cleveland Browns fans aren’t too pleased that quarterback Brandon Weeden has reclaimed his starting job after Brian Hoyer was injured. Hoyer had proved to be a sufficient replacement as the team won three games in a row that he started. Weeden stepped in when Hoyer went down in that third game against Buffalo and helped them to victory, but Weeden was back to his old ways as the Browns lost to the Detroit Lions 31-17.
Obviously, Browns fans aren’t too pleased and one fan took it upon himself to list Weeden’s starting job on Craigslist. The listing was spotted by ESPN.
“Have you played pro football?” asks the ad that 22-year-old Seth Pae, a graduate student at DePaul, took credit for posting. “College ball? High school? Pee-wee?
“Have you played Madden before? Do you know some of the rules of football? If yes, keep reading.”

Brandon Weeden’s inconsistent play prompted one frustrated Browns fan to offer up the quarterback’s job on Craigslist.
And if no?
“… well also keep reading!” the ad reads. “We will take ANYONE!”
Yeah, it’s an insult. Phillip Rivers had his job listed on Amazon and he bounced back. But for a team that’s had 19 different starting quarterbacks since 1999, this is all bad. Maybe it will motivate Weeden when he faces the Green Bay Packers this weekend. Maybe not.
Either way, it is pretty funny.
