Browns | Norv Turner downplays Brian Hoyer signing
Tue, 21 May 2013 09:23:57 -0700
Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner has downplayed the team's signing of QB Brian Hoyer, and Turner also has praised QB Brandon Weeden for his relentless work ethic. "I think there have been more stories written about Brian Hoyer being a Brown over the last four months than probably any player in history," Turner said. "He was released. He was available. He's a guy that has been with some good teams in backup situations. He's played very little football, but I do think we like his skill set."
It's clear that Turner and the coaching staff have anointed the quarterback job as Weeden's to lose over Jason Campbell and Hoyer. Assuming Weeden doesn't fall flat on his face in training camp, expect him to be starting for Cleveland in Week 1.
