I’m not sure what it truly means, but an improved Weeded will go a long way in case of a Tony Romo injury. Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson calls Brandon Weeden the team’s most improved player this offseason according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com.
“He just has a great understanding of the concepts, of the protections, calling the plays, all those things,” said Wilson. “He’s made a big jump this year.” Told what Wilson said about him, Weeden said he attributes it to hard work this offseason. “That’s a good comment because I busted my ass,” Weeden said. “I’ve worked so hard this offseason, training wise, throwing wise to put myself in position.”
Weeden has had his struggles since being drafted as a first-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns. In fairness to Brandon, all quarterbacks have struggled in Cleveland over the past decade or so.
In five games last season, Weeden completed 24 of 41 passes for 303 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.
