Browns Fill Smith’s Roster Move Signing OL Weary

The Browns made their first somewhat surprising move yesterday with the roster, dumping Shaun Smith. Today the team quickly filled that roster spot, picking up former Texan OL Fred Weary. Here’s the official press release from the club:

The Cleveland Browns today signed offensive lineman Fred Weary, the team announced.

Originally drafted in the third round (66th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans, Weary has started in 43 of the 63 games in which he has appeared during his seven-year career (2002-2008), all at right guard.

The 6-4, 307-pound Weary was a four-year letterman (1998-2001) at Tennessee where he earned All-American and All-Southeastern Conference first-team honors as a senior. Born September 30, 1977, the Montgomery, Ala., native attended Robert E. Lee (Montgomery, Ala.) High School.

    I have no problem with this move. Fred is not what you would call a real “star”, but he has good size and lots of experience. Perhaps just as important, he talks a lot less with his mouth and more with his play.
