Browns coach Rob Chudzinski is excited about quarterback Brandon Weeden and thinks he can improve under coordinator Norv Turner, but he's still not ready to commit to him as his starter, and is open to all possibilities at the position.
When Chudzinski was asked specifically at the NFL Combine on Friday if he'd listen to trade offers for Weeden and Colt McCoy, he didn't rule it out.
"We're looking to improve our team in any areas, by any means of doing that," he said.
That's why the Browns, who have the No. 6 overall pick, are spending time at the NFL Combine evaluating quarterback prospects such as West Virginia's Geno Smith, USC's Matt Barkley, North Carolina's State's Mike Glennon, Florida State's EJ Manuel and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib.
But because it's widely regarded as a weak quarterback class, they'll also keep an eye on the veteran market, which could include San Francisco's Alex Smith, Miami's Matt Moore and Seattle's Matt Flynn.
In the event Weeden is deemed the best option, would Chudzinski feel comfortable with that?
"Whoever our starter is, I'm going to be comfortable with," he said.
