Former Oklahoma State Quarterback Brandon Weeden, who was chosen by the Cleveland Browns in the first round of the 2012 draft, was scheduled to meet with the Miami Dolphins late Friday, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk.

Weeden, who, like fellow first round QB's Brady Quinn and Johnny Manziel, was selected by Cleveland with the 22nd overall pick, has also played for the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans.  The Dolphins apparently view him as a lower cost option for backing up Ryan Tannehill, in the event Matt Moore leaves in free agency.

Weeden spent four years with the New York Yankees farm system as a pitcher before finally giving up his dream of playing professional baseball and returning to Oklahoma State.  He played his rookie season in 2012 at the age of 28, one of the oldest rookies in league history, but hey -- at least we know he's got a good fastball.
