PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Former Ohio State Linebacker Andrew Sweat joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN to talk about the offer he received from the Cleveland Browns to tryout for the team, and the reasons why he decided to pass.

Sweat chose to pass on the opportunity to play for the Browns and rather instead pursue a career in law or medicine since he has suffered 3 concussions throughout his career.  Despite fearing for his future health, Andrew said it was still a tough decision to make since he had always grown up dreaming about playing in the NFL.

Andrew also told us about his time at Ohio St. where he spent two years living with former QB Terrell Pryor, and what his best memories are as a Buckeye.
