Browns expected to release Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden

The Cleveland Browns are expected to cut ties with quarterbacks Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden this offseason.

Weeden has been a failed attempt by the Browns to draft a strong armed quarterback and jump back into competing for the AFC North title. Instead he’s struggled and even with a $940,000 salary next season theres little reason to keep him around.

The 32-year-old Campbell played 45 percent of the Browns snaps this season and triggered a $3.25 million salary in 2014. That’s a lot of money for a guy who was 1-7 as a starter. ESPN Cleveland‘s Tony Grossi has him leaving the Browns along with Weeden.

Brian Hoyer should be back with the Browns last season after undergoing ACL surgery. The Browns also have Alex Tanney signed to a contract. Expect the team to draft after quarterback in the first round and hope for better results.
