The Former Oregon Ducks Cornerback has had a rough go of it so far in the National Football League. He was drafted last year by the Cleveland Browns who took a waiver on him coming off an injury. He would need the offseason to recover from an injury he suffered before Oregon took on Florida State in the Rose Bowl in 2015. He was cut by Cleveland in April.

Ekpre-Olomu would find himself going through the waiver wire and he was picked up by the Miami Dolphins four days later. On Wednesday it was reported that Olomu has come full circle from his injury and recovery. He is cleared for full contact according to Rand Getlin from the NFL Network.

Ifo Ekpre-Olomu finished his Oregon Ducks career with a flourish and was projected as a first round NFL Draft pick. Ekpre-Olomu bought an insurance policy prior to his Senior season that gave him $3 million due to his injury and his NFL Draft loss of value from a dislocated knee and a torn ACL.
