Brian Hoyer is one of the guys you root for.
After spending the first three seasons backing up football royalty in New England, Hoyer spent a few weeks in Pittsburgh in 2012, before finally getting a late season start for his third team on the season, the Arizona Cardinals. The Lakewood, OH native Hoyer did enough to convince Browns management that he was capable enough to back up Brandon Weeden. And now, after only two underwhelming starts for Weeden to begin the 2013 campaign, Hoyer is finally getting his shot. The loudest person in the stands this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings will be Brian Hoyer's wife Lauren Hoyer.
Lauren Hoyer, formerly Lauren Scrivens, is a native of Moore, OK. Brian and Lauren returned to OK to help with cleanup efforts following a tornado that hit Moore in May, 2013. Hoyer told the Chronicle-Telegram why he went back:
Very, very fortunate to have no injuries and everybody’s safe. Obviously damage. I know it’s tough, there’s so much devastation. But just to do my part, I feel like it’s the right thing to do, especially when it hits close like that with your wife’s family.
Brian and Lauren Hoyer were married in 2010 and have one child together.

Let's be honest here - Cleveland isn't exactly top on the list for coaches who are looking for jobs. It really should come as no surprise that Chip Kelly and Brian Kelly are staying put instead of jumping over to a team that's got Trent Richardson and not much else. That being said, someone eventually will like the prospects of coaching the Browns. Maybe Jordan Cameron's girlfriend Erin Heatherton can help make a pitch for the team?
You may know Erin Heatherton as a Victoria's Secret model. Or as Leo DiCaprio's most recent ex. Either way, there's no denying she's gorgeous. She was first discovered in Miami and has since modeled for several designers before really settling in with Victoria's Secret. She is a now a VS Angel, which we presume just means she gets to wear those ridiculous wings while strutting around in lingerie. To clarify, there's no judgement in that statement, as we're pretty sure she'd look good in literally anything she wore.
The amount of fame in this relationship is a little unbalanced, as we honestly had no idea who Jordan Cameron was. Gotta love being put on the map because of the girl on your arm. If I were Cameron, I'd blame my lack of notoriety on Brandon Weeden and count my blessings that someone like Heatherton agreed to the first date.
Cameron and Heatherton were recently seen together at a bar in New York City, sparking the rumors they were a couple. They reportedly were set up through mutual friends back in November. This was a quick bounce back for Heatherton, who had just gotten out of her relationship with DiCaprio in October.

There have been times on this site that we find ourselves somewhat surprised to discover a young, raised profile college QB with a high draft stock is already married. There are various reasons why it happens: they have a child together, they want to get married to avoid the pressures of women on the road, or their faith compels them to get married before they get down, Or in the case of Brandon Weeden, it's because you're not such a young college QB anymore, and your 20's are almost over already.
Brandon Weeden came to Oklahoma State after a failed professional baseball career, and has now set himself up as a likely 2nd round pick. Brandon and Melanie were together in 2007 when he walked away from baseball after five seasons in the minors with the seemingly crazy plan of embarking on a new sport to try his hand at football... back in college. While Melanie wasn't exactly thrilled with the idea, she stood by him and supported him after some initial disbelief. She described her initial reaction to the news in an interview with AZCentral.com:
"I didn't think he was being serious. He's been home less than a week, not time to even digest baseball was over. I thought he'd lost his mind. I guess I need to learn to trust him."
Trust him she did, as the two were married July 27, 2009 Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Though they currently live near campus in Stillwater, OK, they they'll probably want to call the moving trucks after day 2 of the draft.
