Former Browns linebacker Quinton Spears sent a not-so-sublte tweet jab at the organization on Sunday:
It doesn’t take a great leap of faith to imply that he’s talking about Pat Shumur’s decision to start Brandon Weeden over Colt McCoy. Weeden had a disastrous debut on Sunday, throwing four interceptions and failing to move the offense much at all. When asked to clarify, Spears comically tweeted “general wise man statement.” It’s vague enough I suppose — maybe he’s talking about the decision to keep LJ Fort over him.
Spears, who played in 13 games for the Browns last year, was in camp with both quarterbacks before being cut at the end of August as the team trimmed the roster to the final 53-man squad. Obviously, he’s likely not alone in this opinion, but it’s easy to pile on the team that just cut you after that catastrophe. It should make for a fun an interesting week on the North Coast.
