In a bit of a surprise move just two days before off-season workouts begin, the Browns have waived cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu with a non-football injury.
Ekpre-Olomu was selected by the Browns in the seventh-round last year and missed the entire season with a knee injury he sustained in college practicing for the college football national championship game against Ohio State. Ekpre-Olomu had been projected in early mock drafts before the injury to be a first-round draft choice.
The Browns used their last pick on him and were hoping he would return to his pre-injury form. No reasons were given by the Browns other than it was a non-football injury.
