"It wasn't an ideal situation," Weeden told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "The regime that drafted me was out a year after I got there. You never know the plans the group coming in has and I think, as a player, as much as you try not to do too much, try not to put too much pressure on yourself to perform and show you can be the guy for the long haul, sometimes you get caught up in it.
"You try to do too much as a player and that's one thing if I could change about myself, I wouldn't try to do too much every Sunday. I think, just let the game kind of come to you and be more patient."
Weeden is excited to be in Dallas, where's he's the third QB behind Tony Romo and Kyle Orton. "I was ready for kind of a clean slate and a fresh start," he said.
Weeden went 0-5 as a starter last season. He threw nine touchdowns against nine interceptions while completing 52.8 percent of his passes.
"Do I think he can be a winning quarterback in the NFL?" said Farmer. "Let me say this. When we grade players, we grade them on what they've done, specifically when you're in the National Football League. The college draft, from my perspective, is a projection. You put a grade on a players based on what you think he becomes in one to two years’ time. Once you’re in the National Football league, you’re graded upon your performance and what you were able to achieve at that moment. With that being said, everybody’s performance warrants a grade that is relative of that performance. We have a grade on Brandon. We know what that grade is. In time, his agent and he will both know where we stand with Brandon and he will be able to release than information."
