TULSA - BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden is heading home to Oklahoma to help anyway he can in the aftermath of the deadly tornado.
Weeden said his wife, Melanie, has family in Moore, Okla., where the tornado killed 24 people and destroyed thousands of homes. Weeden said none of her family members were injured and he's eager to "just to do my part" with the cleanup.
Weeden has been in contact with Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb and he plans to be there this weekend to "do anything, whether it's getting in the rubble and doing whatever, it doesn't matter, I'll be there to help."
Weeden, who starred at Oklahoma State, is from Edmond. The second-year QB said there were some frantic moments for he and his wife when they couldn't contact family as the twister tore through Moore.
