The arrival of former Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton brings the winds of change, and attitude. Horton learned his craft under legendary Dick Lebeau in Pittsburgh, the father of the zone blitz. Horton wants to bring the fierce style to Cleveland, but the 3-4 defense needs a nose tackle in order to work, enter 355 pound Phil Taylor. Everything starts with holding the point of attack in the middle. That will be Taylor’s job, if can execute, the other pieces will fall in place. Taylor says he’s excited by what he has seen so far, that this year the Browns will do the punching not vice versa.  “This defense this year is going to look totally different,” Taylor said, via the Akron Beacon-Journal. “We’re going to be out there flying around. It’s going to be crazy. I can’t wait to get out there. Everybody will be attacking in this defense. You’ll see.” “I can play end,” Taylor said. “I’m the type of person, if you put me at linebacker, I’m going to try to play it. If you put me at running back I’m going to try to play it. I’m going to do whatever I’ve got to do. I’m just ready.”   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
