Brandon Weeden

Richardson and Weeden complete rare feat

Cleveland Browns 1st-round picks Trent Richardson and Brandon Weedenpulled off a rare feat for a pair of rookies on Sunday afternoon against the Bengals.

Hopefully Weeden isn’t the next Tony Banks

They became the first pair of rookie teammates to throw for 300 yards and rush for 100 yards in the same game since 1996.

The down side to this accomplishment? The previous duo doesn’t exactly bring back memories of NFL greats.

On December 15, 1996, St. Louis Rams rookies Tony Banks and Lawrence Phillips lit up the scoreboard against the Atlanta Falcons. Unfortunately, Philips would go on to have just two more 100 yards games while Banks would throw for 300 just three more times.
