Brandon Weeden was one of the strangest draft picks in recent memory. A former second-round pick in the 2002 MLB Draft, Weeden quit baseball to return to college, enrolling at Oklahoma State. He tore it up at the collegiate level and at 28 years old, he became the oldest first-round pick in NFL history.
With an unconventional route to the NFL, it should come as no surprise that Weeden made some unique plays at the next level. Unconventional doesn't always mean good, though, and nowhere is that more evident than in this terrible interception he threw against the Detroit Lions.
Flipping a pass into double coverage is rarely a good idea. And it's certainly not a good idea in a one-score game with just 4 minutes left on the clock.
The play could've actually been worse, though. Had DeAndre Levy managed to control his momentum, he would've almost certainly been able to take that to the house.
Still, it's a pretty brutal play to revisit.
