Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has yet to sign his rookie contract, and he appears to be getting antsy about the situation.
The Browns have signed nine of their 11 picks from this year's draft class. Weeden, the 22nd overall pick, and running back Trent Richardson, the third overall selection, are the exceptions.
So is there any update?
"What's the politically correct answer here?" Weeden asked Friday as the AFC participated in the NFL Rookie Symposium PLAY 60 Youth Football Clinic at the Browns' headquarters. "I wish it was done, but I don't know. It'll get done. We're working. It takes two sides, though."
On June 11, Weeden told the Beacon Journal he would sign before training camp begins in late July. When asked whether he's still confident that will be the case, Weeden said, "I hope so."
Richardson repeated that he's waiting for the top two overall picks, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, to sign before completing his deal.
"For me, I think I'm really just waiting on one and two to get done," Richardson said. "Then when the big guys get done, I can sign."
