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.

Report: Freshman cornerback L.J. Moore has decided to leave Oklahoma football program

NORMAN — Freshman cornerback L.J. Moore has decided to leave the Oklahoma football program, according to a SoonerScoop.com report.

 An OU spokesman said “we don’t anticipate him being with us this spring.”

Moore (6-foot-1, 166 pounds) arrived at OU a four-star prospect from Central East High in Fresno, Calif., and was expected to compete for immediate and significant playing time.

Instead, he only appeared in two games for the Sugar Bowl champion Sooners, recording just one tackle.

Moore came to OU with high-school teammate and safety Hatari Byrd, and Central East receiver Michiah Quick signed with the Sooners earlier this month.

Against some heavy hitters from SEC and Big Ten country, Oklahoma stood its own in college football attendance in 2013.

The Sooners ranked 13th among Division I FBS schools with 508,334 fans, an average of 84,722 per home game. Only Texas had larger attendance numbers in the Big 12 with 593,857 (avg. 98,976).

Oklahoma Sooners

Notes from Inside the Program via The Brainiacs

Many of you have heard some high praise about defensive lineman, Charles Walker. In fact yesterday he was mentioned a couple times as someone who Oklahoma expects to really contribute this coming year.

We’ve got some interesting notes and very high praise from an current NFL scout who saw him working out, doing drills, one-on-ones, etc. recently. The scout was at Oklahoma to look at other players but it was hard for him not to notice Charles Walker. This is the gist of what the NFL scout said:…  Read More

Sooners on Mel Kipers Big Board for 2012

Landry Jones is at 6

Jones will draw inevitable comparisons to Sam Bradford (and other OU QBs with huge numbers). But he has good size, a strong arm, and has improved his accuracy. Major prospect.

Ronnell Lewis is at 17

A defensive end at Oklahoma, Lewis will take his elite athleticism to outside linebacker at the next level. Too quick for many offensive tackles, he should pile up sacks. Added here after eligibility issues cleared up.

No Ryan Broyles, yet.
