Brandon Weeden has been getting in his share of golf. The veteran NFL quarterback and former Oklahoma State Cowboy does love playing the game with the little white ball. His own foundation tournament was last week and again raised a lot of money to find a pediatric heart surgeon for Oklahoma City.
Weeden and his wife, Melanie, are now parents themselves with son Cooper and they have been major benefactors for that cause since establishing a relationship with a family that had a son with heart issues that had to travel to San Diego for medical attention.
The gold comes in for a good cause. Weeden also plays in other tournaments like Scott Verplank's tournament that benefits children with diabetes, which Verplank himself has always dealt with. With this being the time off in the NFL, Weeden just likes to get in some golf knowing that he won't have that opportunity often once training camp begins later in July.
He's still working on football as earlier this week he was throwing passes in a workout with former Cowboy and Atlanta Falcons rookie free agent David Glidden. Weeden lends some advice because he's been through a lot in the NFL since being a first-round NFL Draft choice of the Cleveland Browns and dealing with two years in the Dallas zoo with zoo keeper and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Cut loose by the Cowboys last season the ending was happier for Weeden than his former team in Dallas. Picked up by the Houston Texans, Weeden quarterbacked them to a pair of wins that helped them make the playoffs.
Now, even with Houston signing free agent Brock Osweiler, Weeden is back with the Texans and told us he is more than happy about it. He may be happier about the Texans than he is his golf game.
