As one of the NFL‘s free agent quarterbacks, former Cleveland Browns starter Brandon Weeden will be hoping for some type of interest in the next couple of weeks. For teams looking for a backup, Weeden would be the perfect fit. In fact, it has been rumored that the Chicago Bears could be looking at him to back up Jay Cutler.
Weeden has drawn enough interest from one Browns fan that he made a tribute/farewell video to honor his time in Cleveland. However, this farewell video isn’t exactly the most heartwarming one you will ever see to “honor” a quarterback who was let go after spending his first two years with a team.
Check out this awesomely depressing tribute to Weeden’s time as Cleveland’s starter:
I love how the video starts with the announcement of his pick by the Browns in the first round, followed by boos coming from the NFL fans who decided to attend the draft.
The video then cuts into a nice “I Will Remember You” song by Sarah McLachlan. Just a beautiful tribute to a mediocre quarterback who should have spent his time with the Browns as a backup and who is likely to be a career backup from here on out.
Why is there no chance for a third-year player to have a chance at starting from here to the end of his career? How about the fact that he was drafted when he was 28 years old and he’s now a 30-year-old should-be veteran with a terrible arm.
Good luck finding work, Brandon. At least someone had the decency to make you a farewell video.
