Brandon Weeden wants to be traded or released by the Browns, according to Mike Silver of NFL Network. Silver reported two sources close to the Browns’ 2012 first-round draft choice said Weeden would like a fresh start with a different team in 2014.

“Given the turmoil with the coaching staff and lack of public support from the most recent front office, he’s interested in a fresh start with a clean slate and an opportunity to compete to show he has the talent to develop into a productive player in the league,” Silver said Tuesday on NFL Network’s “Total Access.”
