Given the choice between a football career and the law, an Ohio State University graduate has nixed a chance to try out for the Cleveland Browns.
Former linebacker Andrew Sweat tweeted that he didn't want to take a chance of suffering a severe concussion in the National Football League, the New York Daily News reports. He had already had several in college play.
Although ATL expressed concern about Sweat's legal career prospects in a difficult economy, news reports say he expects to be able to work for his father's law firm after he earns his degree.
