Andrew Sweat spent the last two years in college, starting at linebacker on the Ohio State Buckeyes’ defense. Although he went undrafted, the Browns signed him as an undrafted free agent and extended an invite to attend their spring rookie camp.
Apparently, that’s as far as his pro career will go.
On Monday, Sweat tweeted that he’s opting for law school over the NFL, a decision prompted by the highly-publicized concussion issue recently being brought to light around the league.
Concussion symptoms didn’t want to risk it.. Thanks to the browns for the opportunity. Health trumps football any day

Shortly after, the website Deadspin wrote a column, critiquing his choice to pass up a potential six-figure salary for the hardships of law school. Sweat then fired back, saying he his priorities in order and won’t regret his decision.
@Deadspin might need to get facts right. “good setup” my dad has a very successful law firm think I’m oka...
