Browns Release Former OSU QB Weeden

Brandon Weeden

The Cleveland Browns released former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden on Wednesday.

Weeden struggled last season in his second year with Cleveland, completing just 53 percent of his passes and losing all five of his starts.

He missed several games with injury, then lost his starting job and fans became dissatisfied with Weeden’s performance.

A first round draft pick of the Browns in 2012, Weeden started 15 games as a rookie, completing 57 percent of his passes while throwing
14 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.

Weeden was 28 when he was drafted after spending several years playing minor league baseball.

His last year of baseball was 2006, and he signed to play at OSU in 2007.

Weeden started two seasons at OSU, leading the Cowboys to the Big 12 championship and a Fiesta Bowl win in 2011.
