BEREAThere is an often used saying about the difference a year makes and nothing is truer than forsecond-year safety Tashaun Gipson.
The undrafted free agent from Wyoming was just trying to catch the eye of former Browns defensivecoordinator Dick Jauron and coach Pat Shurmur at this time in 2012.
Fast forward 12 months and Gipson is running with the first team under a new regime in defensivecoordinator Ray Horton and Rob Chudzinski.
Its definitely night and day, Gipson said after wrapping up the second week of the Browns OrganizedTeam Activity (OTA) practices. I am coming in here with a whole new mentality (this year).
Last year, I was trying to latch on and now Im out there with the starters, he said. I know it willbe a big question to people with a second-year undrafted free agent, but as long as the coaches haveconfidence in me I know I have confidence in myself and my ability and I will leave it in Gods hands.
The Browns did not re-sign Usama Young and released Eric Hagg earlier...
