Browns cut Brandon Weeden

brandon weedenBrandon Weeden’s days in Cleveland have come to an end, officially.

The Browns announced on Wednesday afternoon that Weeden has been released.

Weeden, a first-round draft pick in 2012, has been a major disappointment while playing for a dysfunctional Browns franchise. He was a disappointment as a 15-game starter his rookie year and was every bit as bad in his second season, in 2013, when both Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell were more effective running the Browns’ offense than Weeden was.

hahaha Blaine Gabbert traded for a 6th round pick

After only three seasons, the Blaine Gabbert experiment is over in Jacksonville. The Jaguarsannounced on Tuesday that they’ve traded Gabbert, the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, to the 49ers.

In exchange for Gabbert, Jacksonville will get a sixth-round draft pick from San Francisco,according to ESPN.com.

“We thought highly of Blaine as an early entry into the 2011 NFL Draft,” 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. “He is a high-character individual that will be given every opportunity to develop within our system and we are looking forward to working with him.”

Gabbert will presumably battle it out with Colt McCoy for the right to backup Colin Kaepernick in San Francisco.

 

I checked my blog, found this from 2011 pre-draft, Mel Kiper liked Blaine Gabbert

Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri

Gabbert might be more ready than Newton to read defenses at the NFL level, and as a quarterback with very good accuracy, instincts and size, he could come into a franchise in Washington that might need him early. Gabbert is a guy whose stock rose a lot this year and will be under the microscope during the workout process. But what he doesn’t give you is a quarterback who elicits a wide range of opinions or the boom-or-bust concerns many have with Newton and Ryan Mallett.

Boy, you suck, Mel

 

Adam Muema resurfaces in Fla. after going missing following combine

Adam Muema

In a phone interview with the U-T Friday morning, Corey Nelson, a linebacker from Oklahoma who has been training with Muema in Florida since January, said Muema called him on Thursday evening asking for a ride from the airport.

 

Nelson said Muema was still wearing his NFL combine gear when he got into the car. When asked to describe Muema’s demeanor on Thursday, Nelson said the running back seemed “focused, cheerful and very wise.”

 

“He said he was at the airport for three days straight,” Nelson said. “He was telling me when I picked him up that God told him to stay at the airport and don’t do anything, just stay there. That’s what he did for three days straight.

 

“On the fourth day, he told me he couldn’t do it anymore. He decided to call me.”

He needs to seek mental help, don’t tell me, well he’s religious, he’s nuts.

Wesley Horky chooses Oklahoma

Oklahoma added to its 2014 recruiting class Saturday, when long snapper Wesley Horky committed to the Sooners during his official visit.

Horky, from Ravenwood High in Brentwood, Tenn., committed to Tennessee in late January as a preferred walk-on, but Oklahoma special teams coordinator Jay Boulware reached out a short time later with a scholarship offer.

Horky visited Norman this weekend and announced his commitment via Twitter. The Ravenwood High football Twitter account said Horky had signed, but OU spokesman Pete Moris said Saturday night that he wasn’t aware of any new additions to the 2014 signing class.

The Sooners are seeking a replacement for departing senior Austin Woods, who was Oklahoma’s long snapper the past few seasons.

Horky, a two-star prospect according to Rivals.com, played in the 2014 Under Armour All-American Game.
