How bad has Brandon Weeden been at quarterback for Cleveland this season? So bad that former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia, now 43, has contacted the Browns looking for a tryout:
Garcia told 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland that he would be interested in playing for the Browns, who are currently deciding between Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell as their starter.
“I actually reached out to the Browns and said ‘work me out, take a look, I’m open to the opportunity,’” Garcia said, via Keith Britton.
Apparently the Browns weren’t interested, and honestly why would they be? Garcia hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2008 and can’t be much better than Weeden or Campbell (Garcia last held a roster spot with the Texans in 2011). It appeared as if the Browns had a little steam building with Brian Hoyer before he went down with an injury in his third start of the season.
Plus, they’d probably have better chances with Garcia’s pupil JaMarcus Russell rather than Garcia himself.
