Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden wants to take control of the team during his second season in the NFL.

Brandon Weeden has said that it is his time to take control of the Cleveland Browns, as he prepares for his second season in the NFL.

The quarterback is facing competition from recent signing Jason Campbell for the starting role, having won the job off Colt McCoy last year.

The 29-year-old told The AP: "I want to compete, and having Jason here is better for everyone involved because we'll push each other.

"This is probably the biggest year of my career because I've got to show that I can play at this level and make adjustments.

"Now that it's my second year here, it's my time to take control and be the guy. They're not going to stick me out there if they don't think I'm the guy who can win games."

Weeden started 15 games for the Browns in 2012, recording 3,385 passing yards.
