Rumor: Browns could bring back Derek Anderson

Browns fans, you might have to un-burn your Derek Anderson jerseys, WEWS Mike Cairns reporting that new head coach Rod Chudzinski may bring Derek Anderson back to Cleveland. From late Friday:

and from Saturday afternoon:

But it’s not just Cairns. ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi tweeted:

Anderson, 29 (the same age as Brandon Weeden. YAY), played for Chudzinki in Carolina last season, appearing in two games and completing all four of his pass attempts. Anderson’s last season as a starter was in 2010, when he threw for 2,065 yards with seven TDs and ten interceptions for the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Holy crap, this guy just set some sort of land speed record for burning yet to be constructed bridges. Bringing back DA is every Browns fan’s worst nightmare.

    Really wish that ALex Smith was being tossed around more instead of DA

    In his first 2 seasons in the NFL, Brian Sipe threw 2 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Probably best not make any concrete judgments about Weeden after 1 season in the NFL.

    Not true… Tannehill was worse than Weeden.

    This would be awesome! My avatar would be topical again!

    heck no, ya dingus.
