Browns want Weeden to cut down on picks

Updated:

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns coach Pat Shurmur made one thing clear: rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden must eliminate interceptions.

Weeden has thrown 12 picks, tying two other QBs for the second-highest total in the NFL this season behind Dallas' Tony Romo (13). The 29-year-old Weeden and the Browns (2-7) visit the Cowboys (4-5) on Sunday.

Shurmur said there's a fine line between being aggressive and careless with the football. He has reviewed all of Weeden's interceptions and said "there were times when he could have made better decisions." Shurmur believes Weeden can become an "outstanding" NFL quarterback and to be one "he's got to lead us to victories and don't throw as many interceptions."

Weeden has completed 185 of 336 passes for 2,088 yards and nine touchdowns. His passer rating is 67.9 - ahead of only two QBs.
