Former Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weeden signs with Titans

Former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden has found a new NFL home.

Weeden signed with the Tennessee Titans, the team announced Tuesday. Weeden orchestrated Oklahoma State’s lone Big 12 title in 2011, leading the Cowboys to a 12-1 record and a Fiesta Bowl victory. He held Oklahoma State’s record for career passing yardage before Mason Rudolph broke it earlier this season, but Weeden still holds to two highest single-season totals in school history. Weeden is also Oklahoma State’s career leader in touchdown passes.

The 22nd overall pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2012 NFL Draft, Weeden has started 25 games in his career for Cleveland, Dallas and Houston. The 33-year-old has 31 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in his career.

He was signed as insurance at the position with Tennessee uncertain about the status of starter Marcus Mariota with a hamstring injury. The team worked out quarterbacks Tuesday and settled on Weeden, who will back up Matt Cassel if Mariota is unable to go.
