Former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden says one of the most intense topics in NFL locker rooms is college football. Players are always claiming bragging rights over past conquests against the alma maters of current teammates. They are also talking big and bad about how their school is going to do in the upcoming season.
Weeden is back in Oklahoma following the OTA schedule and the mini-camp with his current team, the Houston Texans. Weeden was picked up late in the 2015 season by Houston and wound up leading them to two late season victories that helped clinch their spot in the playoffs.
Weeden was re-signed by the Texans despite the team's offseason signing of Denver Broncos free agent quarterback Brock Osweiler. Weeden said he gets along with the former Arizona State standout and looks forward to another year in Houston.
One negative is the Texans off weekend is Nov. 6 and Weeden admits when the schedule came out he immediately checked to see where the Oklahoma State Cowboys were that weekend. They are on the road at Kansas State on Nov. 5. Weeden may make it up there, but he was hoping for a home game in Stillwater.
Weeden talked with us about how he feels about the upcoming Oklahoma State season and he is optimistic.
