BEREA The Browns concluded their rookie minicamp with one practice Sunday and Pat Shurmur was pleased with what was accomplished.
It was a good and productive minicamp, Shurmur said. It was a very good start, but we have a long way to go.
Shurmur said it served as an orientation on what will transpire in the coming days and months.
Tomorrow, these (rookies) will be in the off-season program with the veterans and well be one team, he said. What (the players) learned as a group and now we put the older guys with them. It will be a good foundation on how we work and an orientation for what were trying to do.
Shurmur said he was able to see the players and why the Browns drafted them.
I think what impresses me the most is a lot that a lot of the guys that we are talking about, Shurmur said. I see the reasons why we drafted them. I have not been disappointed in what these guys are based on what we thought they were when we drafted them.
Shurmur said he is very excited to have a no...

HAVING A BALL
A Twitter follower without a date to prom asked Joe Haden if he'd like to take her, and much to her surprise, he replied back that he'd love to.
I was unable to make it to rookie camp this weekend to see and behold the skills of Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson. In some ways that’s probably a good thing. I learned last year in regular training camp that it is quite a vacuum to look at football. Without some serious perspective it is easy to think the team is far better or far worse than reality.
That doesn’t mean it...
BEREA -- Significant judgments from a rookie minicamp can be dangerous.
But preliminary thoughts on how a guy throws, catches or runs are possible.
And Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has provided some positive vibes for the team that drafted him and its long-suffering fan base. It does not translate into success with James Harrison or Geno Atkins bearing down on Weedens...
We knew that the Cleveland Browns liked Trent Richardson a lot. Heck, they basically traded their draft away to get the man. And though the greatest player to ever put on a Cleveland Browns jersey thinks Richardson is just “ordinary”, the Browns coaching staff couldn’t disagree more. And after what Richardson showed them at last weekend’s rookie mini-camp, the Browns coaching...
On Friday, Cleveland Browns head coach pat Shurmur stated that they’re currently not interested in signing free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress. At least not yet.
“We haven’t talked about Plax right now,” said Shurmur.
Of course at any moment the Browns could start to pursue Burress, but right now we’re just speculating. They clearly need a number one receiver and...
The Browns have cut running back Armond Smith and signed linebacker Emmanuel Acho, one of their 11 draft picks.
Smith made Cleveland's roster last season as an undrafted free agent. He played in three games and spent 11 weeks on the team's practice squad.
Acho, who started 48 career games at Texas, was selected in the sixth round. His signing leaves running back Trent Richardson...
The Cleveland Browns will have a quarterback competition. They expect rookie Brandon Weeden to win it.
Speaking before a banquet for Browns fans, general manager Tom Heckert said the team drafted Weeden out of Oklahoma State in the first round with the idea he would start in his first season.
Heckert's comments came one day before the Browns hold their first organized training...
The Cleveland Browns have signed eight of their 11 draft picks.
The club announced Saturday that they've signed offensive lineman Mitchell Schwartz, defensive lineman John Hughes, wide receiver Travis Benjamin, linebacker James-Michael Johnson, offensive lineman Ryan Miller, defensive lineman Billy Winn, defensive back Trevin Wade and fullback Brad Smelley.
Terms of the deals...
Phil Taylor likely lost for season, as head coach Pat Shurmur has to start his second year on a sour note.
After the first day of the Cleveland Browns rookie minicamp, quarterback Brandon Weeden indicated thathe’s determined to be the Browns starting quarterback.
“Obviously I hope I’m the guy,” said Weeden.“I’m gonna do everything in my power to be that guy.”
Weeden’s message to Browns fans is that he plans on winning games and ultimately a Super Bowl.
