Former UH lineman Meatoga invited to Browns' camp

<br />UH defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga brought the heat on UC Davis' Randy Wright earlier this season. He shows teammates how to be physical "week in and week out," says freshman Moses Samia.<br />

Former University of Hawaii football player Vaughn Meatoga told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser he has accepted an invitation to participate in the Cleveland Browns' mini-camp this coming weekend. 

Meatoga, a Kamehameha Schools graduate, completed his UH eligibility at the end of the 2011 season. 

He was not selected in the National Football League's 2012 draft, but he had free-agent stints with the Washington Redskins, Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders. 

This year, he signed a two-year contract with the B.C. Lions of the Canadian Football League. But the Lions canceled that contract two weeks ago when a former B.C. player became available. 

This past Saturday, former UH assistant coach Tony Tuioti, now a quality-control coach with the Browns, extended the mini-camp invitation to Meatoga.
