Weeden has spent the last two seasons with the Cleveland Browns but recently signed with the Dallas Cowboys.

I wanted to see this indoor and see how things were going.”


OSU quarterback Daxx Garman hasn’t played football since 2009, at Jones High School. Garman moved to Texas and was ineligible as a senior at Southlake Carroll.
