  • How About a Look At This CB

    More than a year after a torn ACL suffered in practice derailed his hopes of being a first-round draft pick, cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu continues to try to re-establish his football career.

    The Browns have announced that Ekpre-Olomu has been released. He’ll now be subject to the waivers system. If he clears waivers, he’ll become a free agent.

    Cut with the “non-football injury” designation, Ekpre-Olomu’s knee apparently has still not fully recovered from the December 2014 injury.

    It’ll be interesting to see whether the 49ers make a claim for Ekpre-Olomu, given that coach Chip Kelly recruited Ekpre-Olomu to Oregon.

    Ekpre-Olomu reportedly received $3 million from an insurance company as a result of the injury. Still, if he ends up having no NFL career, he will have lost a lot more than that.

    But, no, there continue to be no valid reason for providing college football players fair compensation for the millions their efforts generate.

    I'm not to familiar/forgot. We're already all about some injured players so what will it hurt to look?

    He's injured so there's a good chance of the Dolphins signing him.

      I remember when he was coming out of Oregon, before his injury he was touted as a first round pick..I wanted the Fins to do what the Browns did and take a flier on him in hopes of getting a late round steal but it's now starting to look like his football days may be behind him if he still hasn't recovered from the injury..If i remember correctly his injury was pretty serious...

        Maybe he had Obummercare! If he's all that and a bag of potato chips why not bring him in for workout.

          Obummercare, yep, that would about explain it!....The thing is, i don't think he's even close to working out or getting back onto a football field, that would pretty much be the only reason the Browns would choose to cut their losses a year later...He was cut with the non-football injury designation, indicating he still can't play...

        PFT is now reporting that Ekpre-Olumo feels great (able to dunk a basketball again and routinely working out with NFL-caliber players) and will get his knee re-examined again soon..The Browns didn't feel comfortable with the way the knee looked during a recent MRI however & chose to part ways.

        I would definitely bring him in for a look and to schedule a workout when he's ready,, if he's anywhere near to what he was before his injury, signing him could be a steal at a huge position of need..

            A 5 foot 9 inch slot cornerback playing against TWO 6 foot 7 inch giants that play for the Patriots won't fair too well will it.
